Here's mine - 1992 Pajero. The 3.0 V6 does a great job of converting petrol into noise, and some forward motion. Expensive to run, not that practical really, but I love it!

Although it is clearly cuboid, it can not possibly be yours, Gibbleking, each of its sides is the same colour.

Oh, and what is a puple, and why would one want to wipe it? :wink: :twisted:

160 top end? Can't help thinking that's a bit ambitious. Not sure T5s are quite that quick, never mimd the lpts.

ps on reflection the amount of petrol it uses just thrusting to 100 is appalling...im not sure there is enough room in the tank for that...its certainly one of the fastest cars ive ever driven...just touching that throttle is ...interesting to say the least....60 feels like 30 in it...so very easy to speed in that car ...

But the beauty is the fuel is the main expense! I have had a number of 4wds and the Pajero has been one of the most reliable, yet it was the cheapest by a country mile!

By next winter I will have a G Wagen back on the road, my wallet is quivering at the thought already!

I know what you mean, my Mercs were like that.

Secret is to wind down the windows when in low speed zones.

Not so good for winter.
