Would really like to make contact with Southern Africans making regular use of this forum. Africa is a lonely place for Patrol owners.

We have that here too mate - they're called South Australians (similar, but not the same!). They are the ones we stick down the bottom and in the middle of the seaboard populations east and west ... a few of them may actually respond to your thread thinking you can't spell, but just humour them mate!!


Hope you find some over there boss - no fun having the toy, having the locations, but not having mates to share it with ...

Hi mate. Was born in Jo'burg but live in Aussie now. Where do you hail from?

Live out in a small place called Sezela. 2 hours from the Wild Coast and 2 hours from the Drakensberg.

Just had a look at the members map and confirmed that Africa is a lonely place for Patrols. Am on the road on a daily basis and see another Patrol perhaps once a week or less.

Hi mate - what is the common 4wd over there? Or are 4wds not as popular?

Hi Jas. This is Toyota country. Prado, Landcruiser and Fortuna make up probably half the wagon 4x4 population. Then come the double cabs with Toyota and Isuzu leading the pack. The remainder like Landrover, Jeep, VW, Porshe and the other eastern makes tend to be urban status symbols and mostly used as moms taxi. Patrols are few and far between because Nissan is not very well represented. Their car market took a dive in the 80's and 90's because of unpopular designs (granny looking cars) and consequently the good stuff like Patrols suffered from the fall-out.

A shame. I'll not bag toyotas or others but a shame SA hasn't seen the light!

I think the UN use patrols not 100% on that though,
