I mean what can ya say to the logic of that? Is it Toyota drivers? is it the youth of today? and the worse part about it is it's not the first time something like this has been said. Is it the hates for Patrols? .. why are people just so upset about the Patrols?
    I thrive of cockheads like that... hate motivates. Lets go wheeling. You pick the time, I'll pick the track.


    Most younger people hate patrols because they used to own one but with crappy mods and aftermarket parts with a sub standard tune that the they treated like crap and ran into the ground and blame the patrol for it

    In a past life I did own a oyta. It wasn't a cruiser, but I must admit the low range is brilliant. I've got the same now and that's with 65% reduction gears in the patrol.

    On a trip once we oyat owners were driving on the black stuff inbetween tracks about 100 metres with hubs locks and at low psi at about 60 odd ks. A group of patrol guys drove past and we all happened to be on the same channel. We copped the usual shit , like "look they're going flat out"

    At the end of it, it's like @Hodge said. Carlton Collingwood, Holden ford. I'm a Holden guy, but I can appreciate any good looking car

    The young dick at the yard sale is just that a young dick with no respect.

    Exactly. Seems to be a common thing these days unfortunately.

    Shoulda dragged him under the vehicles for a comparo. Copped heaps for driving a Patrol in the old 4wd club. Only having a stock RB30, it did lag a bit but it went everywhere they went and it got me home every time and cost half the price!
    My advice is: not to follow my advice.

    To me, this is just plain bad manners, someone that grew up lacking father/grandfather reference.

    Personally previously drove Toyodas (FJ 40s/45s/55s) throughout the Victorian HC for many younger years as an uncomfortable fanboy
    Eventually got the shits with spitting full floating axle sticks out into scrub and twisting pinions clean off with tail shaft light rock knocks
    Touch wood, havent had a single drivetrain issue since converting to Nissan GU/GQs and still hauling Mates out with busted 80s/100s unfortunately too 🥲
    There is a reason alot of Comp Trucks run Nissan gear underneath, Toyoda shells Atop look kinda cool though
