    I've learnt through experience that there may not be a thing called 'common sense' any more.

    People either know it, or they don't.

    The workplace is a great example........"I wasn't trained it in it, therefore I'm not responsible".

    It is up to people like us to spread the word and educate people, that it's NOT SAFE to simply hook up a rope to a tow ball and fang it!

    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.
