Great looking ride for bringing that deer in from the back of the property or taking your bride out for a night at Gruene Hall.
Enjoy it for many years!

Now THAT I would love to see.i just love those old short wheelbase toyotas they turn into bull catchers in the northern territory.
steel bars and steel plate welded on where necessary.
and a hydraulic arm to swing down and grab a scrubber by the neck.
sometimes the bulls take over and hunt the toyota, so look out driver.
the drivers have to just smash through quite big trees and scrub, and avoid anthills while endeavouring to get in close to grab the bull while a helicopter is trying to steer the bull away from the really thick stuff.
women do this job as well as men and are fearless.
once captured the bulls are tied to a tree until they can be winched onto a truck.
the same is done with buffalo.
Cool! Thanks I’ll check that out.randy,
there is plenty of stuff on google about it.
in the old days guys used to chase them on horses, grab them by the tail and throw them to the ground, and then tie their legs together.
they were called scrub runners..
Hmm. Well, that is rather patronizing old sod -
Aye! G&T and all that - wonderful!Hmm. Well, that is rather patronizing old sod -
I have hats - lots of hats (to include the real ones we occasionally still wear here in Texas) and several pairs of Courteneys. However, because this is Texas, the shelves have quite a few more pairs with names like JB Hill and Lucchese. And like most of us non-urban folks in this country, over the last four plus decades, I always have had 4WD drive vehicles ranging from Jeep CJ7's, to Troopers, to Ford pick-ups. As I look out the window a Range Rover and F250 are keeping the new girl company. But deeply appreciate the mentoring.
I think it must be a Brit former Commonwealth kind of compulsion thing.
@Red LegFor a number of years, I owned a 1941 Chevy truck. It was all original which was cool but that meant it had a non-synchronized transmission and an engine with horsepower that barely reached three digits. I finally found someone eager to take over its stewardship about six-months ago, and had been on the look out for a Defender in good shape. Instead, I stumbled across this old oriental girl a few days ago. It was originally the same Toyoda Voodoo Blue. It's engine and drive train were replaced by a 70's era cruiser system with the larger 4.2 L straight six. It doesn't drive exactly like Nancy's Range Rover, but it is definitely a step up from the '41 Chevy that approached self-destruct velocity at 40 mph.

Plus the color closely matches my shockingly blue eyes.....
Though I think I am going to have to add an under dash AC unit for south central Texas.
@Rick CoxI bought one in the same color, new, in 1978. It was one of the first diesel Toys in BC . Great rig. Sold it for what I paid a few years later to help finance an extended trip to South America. Always wanted another. But this is my hunting rig now. Congratulations!

@bruce mouldsreminds of the good old days hunting horses and kangaroos for pet meat.
we used long wheelbase 3 speed petrol cruisers with tray tops.
they only needed 3 gears due to having so much bottom end.
