    Westy's new not quite a patrol build.....

    Well I'm half way through this trip and what a joy it's been so far.
    So most know the trusty gu got passed on to a young fella who's taking it back to Darwin..
    Lucky fkn car I reckon..

    So we've been on the look for a reasonable car to suit our needs.

    Was looking at pajeros and colarados..
    This Nissa mentions she like the r51 pathfinder.....
    What.
    Done..
    Not lettinging that opportunity pass....

    So after the zd30....
    Look. It wasn't a bad engine.
    Head gasket at 110k was a pain..
    But over all a great car..

    But the yd25....
    Na not keen.
    The v6 vq40.. yes please..
    Car sales.
    What.
    4 in Aus under 200 thou..

    Start searching and turn up this one in Tassie.
    Geeze really. Tassie.
    But it's got low km for its age.
    Bloody mint condition.
    Near new ko2 tyres..
    Ti.
    Done.

    So now I rite this as I wait for the spirit of Tassie to depart....

    So far love it.
    Power for days..
    Sports exhaust.
    Mint rims and tyres..
    Lights for days.. (might remove the 9" rounds yet..)
    I'll get fuel usage figures when I fill around Melbourne.
    But I think it'll go around 13-14lph..

    But happy days thus far..

    Looks good, surely you would be better than 14l for fuel, just put a tennis ball under the accelerator pedal.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.
