    Re: Mahindra parte

    Weet nie van dit nie. My pa het 'n Colt Rodeo vir 250 000KM met 'n locked viscous fan gery nadat dit op 130 000KM gegroet het. Al wat dit wel gedoen het is krag sap en petrol brand.

    Re: Joking with Toyota

    That muffled rustle you can sometimes hear on a quiet night in the bush is not a light breeze blowing through the grass, in fact it is the sound of Toyotas slowly rusting away.
