    I tend to keep cars for a fair while, don,t change too much (case in point, I will have had the GQ for 15yrs this coming June). One that sticks in the mind is my old 1982 Daihatsu F20 deluxe, 1.6l of raging petrol power & shorter than a midgets d!ck , wet road would see the back come to see the front at anytime. Jeez that poor little bugger copped a flogging, like a mini version of a Q, couldn't kill it. Seeing as the GQ has only just rolled 250k over on the clock I don't think I'm ready to make more "past loved ones " just yet.

    Nice Croaker. At 250k, it's only starting to get run in.

    Your GQ is in very good nick. Glad that you are planning on keeping it for some time yet.

    As you say, and I would agree that all our owned 4wds have taken us on many adventures, with many memories.

    Any photos?
    ive got photos just struggling to work out how to post them.
    I will do some more learning on the subject.
