A G60, what made you downgrade to a Holden? :bolt:

The G60 was the only decent 4wd nissan ever made

Years are not kind to G60's I'm afraid, 186 carbie with Ford Capri seats I think I fitted, always dreamed of a 4 speed gearbox which I got with my Landy then dreamed of an engine and having owned one of nearly every decent FWD I can sling it at Cruiser owners, todays FWDers are really yuppie drivers anyway, hell I even put my hand up for AC, decent seats, a radio and an auto transmission things unheard back when blokes drove FWDs like Landys SIIA, FJ40 cruisers, G60 Patrol and Inter Scouts, a cigarette lighter was an optional extra......carpet was from off cuts and the AC came with a winder or kick vent...........you also had to punch holes in beer cans and use an opener for the bottles ................................. its nice to remember but nicer to to put it into D and crank up the AC...........have owned 2 Holdens, neither was really a GM either..lol,lol.

When I get my RAM 1500, look out rice burners.................

Well enough of dreaming lets get this Toyota Mine Truck finished so we can oggle and drool at it and be glad we don't have one to fill up......

You cant turn on me, it was your relentless badgering "Toyota this, Toyota that, blaa blaa blaa" that wore me down. I follow your wise counsel and smash, your into me.

Im currently studying a under graduate degree in Retirement, majoring in Hypocrisy. Will have my qualifications soon enough. The princess has always encouraged me to go into politics

Yes
I really wanted the 79 looked great and strong till I sat in it
I can’t pay that much $ and feel like the inside is straight out of the 70’s.
If they brought the inside up to date it would have been mine
So now when I do pick up the Z71 I’ll be enjoying the benefits of the modern day.
Plus after I negotiated the best price Holden,a Collingwood fc sponsor, reduced it by another $2500.
