After a lot of negotiation and making plans I managed to get my hand on this 1997 Hilux 2.4 D/C. Unfortunately I had to let go of my "Mossel Bakkie" (I will miss you...... :cry: ). I guess it is time to make some new memories then. :yahoo:
Here you go.

Looks very nice. Very reliable and good in the dust. What will you be using the vehicle for?
Hope you have many reliable enjoyable miles to follow...

Thanks Guys,

I am going to use it for overlanding\camping. Still a lot to be done on it in that regard, but for time being the camping trailer will be hooked on.
