Trying to think was it a Nissan or Tojo door lock that you could open your beer bottles with, I was most impressed, have a wall mount bottle opener some where just never fitted it all those years ago as I took cans away , still have my can spanner on a key ring stashed away.

I was at Bundaberg Toyota last week they had one in the showroom and I just thought I was starting my apprenticeship all over again
Well well well, what was the @DRW doing at the HQ of the greatest vehicle made, aside from oogling a Troopy. They actually had the Troopy in the showroom ???? Fascinating. I bet you took a selfie with the Beast

Forget Covid, todays top news story in Mexico.

Neville the Troopy had been attacked in a blindsided assassination attempt by a stinking Kia Sorrento which was lying in wait in the local Maccas.

...... and as they say (or at least they do now) dont take a Kia to a Troopy fight

The rego indicates a really new car!
I got "T"" boned by a Ford Lincoln Town Car once when I had my GMC Jimmy.
Cost to fix Jimmy 400, cost to fix Town Car 8000, don't know but they may have written it off.
Stupid idiot was trying to pass on the wrong side of the road while I was making a turn.
Hope the Troopy survives the mechanics OK.

Yeah, the Kia was a month old. I have the Troopy at a very nice high-end panel shop (as you'd expect), surrounded by some almost as impressive company. They moved all the wannabees back to make way for the 2nd coming

I’d be carefull one of those fancy cars doesn’t knock off your classy wheels
Loc nuts. Id be mad to leave my car and "those rims" anywhere without loc nuts, they're a real head turner

There's a couple of cars up the back in the pic that I think have skinnier tyres than mine, could that right?? Is there such a thing

I wish. A lot of coin splashed on that vehicle, although that was a Jmacx rear diff which ill be getting at some point
The jmacx diff and coil conversion they make for the 70s would be so so so good I reckon
