  1. Re: 1953 Colchester Student Mk1 6" gap bed - A restoration project

    Ek het nie van die letterlike taal gepraat nie;D

    Party van die terminologie is net vir my onbekend. Ek voel net dom!

    Very nice and interesting thread though. I had about 6 months worth of...

    Snow on Matroosberg

    I am fortunately heading for summer where I am, but I know some people are interested in seeing snow. I was sent these pictures this morning from Matroosberg.

    Re: Hilux wanted. Advice please.

    D4d with FSH and in good condition is a safe bet. They are no nonsense vehicles.

    Very important questions.

  16. Re: Advice needed: trade-in or Sell privately - Heritage Edition V6

    I just looked at the rims which are not 2013 and thought it was an older model. I'll retract my guesstimate of R180k. You should get more but still not easy.

    Re: Hilux wanted. Advice please.

    Agree. I went through the exercise 4 months ago. Eventually bit the bullet and bought a 2.8 GD6 since Hiluxes second hand go for crazy prices. A 2.4 GD6 for 250k will have at least 300000km on the...

  22. Re: Advice needed: trade-in or Sell privately - Heritage Edition V6

    I cannot see you getting more than 180k max for that bakkie. The V6 4x2 is a very difficult seller. But to answer you're question, yes selling privately should be better, but not easy.
  23. Re: Interesting Ranger 3.2 vs 2.0 BTdi tow test

    Technology evolves constantly. There are countless 2.0l Amaroks out there with higher mileage than that without too many problems. Engine size is not automatically an indication of reliability. A...

    WW, you can phone Pieter Loubser. He is selling a 2012 3.0 D4D CCab 4x2 with 135000km. Bakkie is white and mint. He wants to buy a car. I think he might be slightly negotiable. He is just round the...
