From Alex, To Alex

Post by Alex Roux » 21 Aug 2019 17:31

Bought myself a skedonk for my birthday.
A Safari with a GQ top.
It has an SD33 Nissan turbo diesel engine in, which apparently was the contemporary of the L28 petrol engine we got in Safaris at that time.
Car is really primitive but the basics work.

It’s really high (ala Reenen type Safaris), with a set of 35” that has a fair amount of rubber left.

Now what to do with it... :think:

Not used to all that black smoke when pressing the throttle.

Netjies, Alex!

Onthou net - te veel swart rook is nie 'n goeie ding nie...
