My other 4x4 is 2002 Mercedes-Benz ML320.

Bog standard 7 seat luxury model fitted with Mercedes "Command" system.

This is to run the family around. The car is supremely comfortable, fairly economical and handles nicely.

I also have a Range Rover Dakar if I want to get dirty.

Hi

James in Melbourne.
I have a foolish attraction to Lada Nivas - and own 2. One is a hardtop, the other a rare convertible - I'm the second owner, I bought it from TVs own Cameron Daddo! :)

About to buy another one too. Common sense hasn't come into play yet.

BTW: I am a committee member for the Victorian chapter of Skylines Australian - Nissan Skyline based club. I recently sold my lovely R33 GT-R, and am now looking for a track-ready R32.

Hmmm s'pose I should sign on here too.

I am at this point in time, a very frustrated Lava Nida owner.

The beast in question is a 1984 1600, which I accepted in trade on my LJ50 zook.

It's had a bit of a hard life, but hopefully I'll soon have some minor bugs sorted out and I can try driving it :roll: Already has longer springs in, for about 2-3 " of lift, and has 205r16 ATs on F55 Daihatsu rims.

Hey There,

Iam from Kalgoorlie WA and drive A Ford Ranger. So far it has done everything I have wanted it to do as a small 4x4 and has yet to fail me and needed a tow home. I have had it since new back in 2008 and have only added a Safari Snorkel, Goodyear MTR,S and Light Force 240,s. Waiting on Snake Racing to develop a lift kit of which I believe they are currently working on BT50.
