    Default How many Pinzgauers are there in SA??

    This Thread obviously refers...........http://www.4x4community.co.za/forum/...-Advise-Please

    Being a Pinzie owner myself, I was wondering : How many people in RSA have running Pinzgauers??

    I know of (not sure though, this is actually all "hearsay"......please confirm if you can??):

    1) A guy in WC somewhere, there was an article on his Pinz a couple years back in I think SA 4X4. VERY nice Pinz he has/had!! There was apparantly one for sale in WC at +- R 220 000.........I have an idea this is the same one

    2) Guy in Pretoria somewhere.......he owns a workshop or something

    3) I think there is another German guy in WC - I think.

    4) My 1971 model.

    ??

    THANKS!!

    Found this - Author is a Mr Willem De Lange. Not sure if it's the same one though, but nevertheless a nice read on a trip report with a Pinz.
    This is not the article I rermember though.

    Another Willem de Lange read....nice!!

    Yip.......same one in Papsak's street as the one in above links.

    1) Custom non standard green canvas
    2) Non standard rear tow hitch
    3) "Left Hand Drive" and other insignia at the back
    4) Insignia on the front

    BAIE DANKIE PAPSAK!!!

    Dunno if the owner is still Mr De Lange though.......it had a CL reg number at the time of the 2 articles above. Can be still - I see the Mini is CL registered.
