G'day all. Well I'm an old timer whose had 4wds since the early 1970s. My first was a '68 swb Landrover that I used to fill with scouts and go bush. Traded it in for one of the first diesel Datsun MQs to come to Oz in 1980. After proper suspension mods done by a professional spring maker at Lidcombe (stay away from the generics, they're an expensive problem) it became one of the best I've ever owned. (So far the count is about 10, including 2 Rangies, Shorty Cruiser, Ford Explorer, 2 Suzukis, and currently a Kia Sportage (that's "Herself's) and a KJ Cherokee diesel (Mine, mine, mine!!!) most of which have served me well. In the 80s and 90s, I was very heavily involved in the 4wd movement (being a active member of three clubs). Since the turn of the century, I'm no longer involved in clubs having retired and moved to the central coast, and buying a caravan, but I still love my bit of 4wding, although, perhaps not as adventurous as I was. My other past times are golfing and fishing. Good to meet you people. Who knows, maybe out on the track . . . Tats!
