I hope, knowbody will kick me, but my Patrol-time in Africa is over.
The engine overhowling last year costed 35000 Rand and the engine was working for 5000km. Now knocking sounds from the engine, a valve is not closing. I plan my tours along the garages...no, that has to end.
I'm now in Swakopmund and somebody offered me to buy the car for a small amount, the other possibility is to give the car to the namibian government for nothing. I need the correct stamps in my papers!!! At the moment I'm waiting for a call fron Windhoek from the guy, who ist interested in that "classic car". A transport of our things from Swakop or Windhoek back to Bethlehem should be the payment....
But now my question: My wife and me decided to buy a toyota. We prefer a Landcruiser (hdj80 in good condition would be fine, or a long hzj, manual gearbox, diesel) but maybe a Hilux with 3.0L Diesel engine.
If somebody knows such a car, please write (firstname.lastname@example.org
Greetings from Swakop
