So I was driving home the other day, coming past a pretty picture where a Ford Ikon / Focus? ( Hey I don’t know ford’s) where trying to pull out a tractor that’s been gutting grass. Now the story goes that the grass was so long that the driver could not see the storm drain until it was tooooo late and tried to swing right to avoid driving in to the storm drain.

Well, never the less it was to late and he got his left wheel right in to it and got saved by the weight being on the front wheel and the grass cutter at the back.

Now by the time I got to this seen, the ford was busy smelling more and more like burned clutch than rubber.
Sorry for the bad quality in the picture… but I am sure you can get the idea

When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.


Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers ... what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.
Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

Gompie in 'n droë rievier, na die bekende senario "hou vas ek wys jou wat die hilux kan doen" :silent:

Ek moet sê die foto doen nie justice nie, daar is 'n groot gat agter die bakie, wat oor sponklik lings voor was, en met al die bome kon ek hom ook nie vorentoe recover nie, Maar ja hy is uit.

P.S. next time as Zanri(Nou 7 maande) nie saam is nie recover jy my dalk :twisted:
To Buy and sell a vehicle is my hobby
