Newbie from Zim

Post by Gonzo » 20 Aug 2018 19:19

Good evening,
like some others, I have been visiting this forum for some time now... Thank you for all the useful information! Time to join.
We moved to Zim in 1984, living in Harare... I am married, 3 children who are all overseas, retired. My first 4x4 was a 1986 isuzu KBD, 2.2 (which I am still driving) then a 2.8D toyota hilux.
I got my first patrol ( Standard GU 2008 TD42 ) in 2012 and when my daughter needed a car for the bush we got a second one (GQ 1992 TD42). I have not added many extras to the cars after I bought them; trying to keep them in a good condition is enough effort.I will try to attach a picture.
