  2. No need to shout!

    Seriously, I've often wondered about restoring a Ferret, especially as you can pick one up for not very much money. Where do you keep yours?
     
  3. Its small enough to keep in a small garage / workshop.

    I heard a story about how small the ferret is - a ferret commander was dispatched to carry out an observation on some terraced houses in Northern Ireland . (Suspected terrorist activity, after a tip off). They buried the ferret, deep in a small wood in the dead of night , and as dawn broke they started watchong the offending house with bino's ... at about 6.00am there was movement at the front door, and 2 armed figures in camo gear step out and walk straight into the small garage attached to the house ... Excitement grows , radio message fly back and forth .... 60 seconds later out drives a Ferret scout car from the same regiment ........... Been at the house all night rutting ........
