Could You Not Get.......

..........THOSE PICTURES ANY BIGGER ?

Nice one, 500 - cheap as chips - you'll get the same money for it in 12/18/36 months when you come to sell it. Good Buy.

Here's mine at 400.

p.s Do a search on the forum for resizing pictures. Those of yours only took my work PC a fraction of a second to open but if I'd been at home it would have been quicker to jump in the car and come and take a look in person

thats bit untrue i had it up and till 80k then sold it to my mate to pull our jet
ski to herne bay each weekend .one week end we found it would not move
at all we had rusted the rear brakes to the drum but 45 pound later off we
went. sorry it got scraped in the end due to two years for hard beach work
the windscreen rusted and fell off the replacement was to high a cost to
keep it runing so my mate went out and got a new jimmy the next day
which i will say is just as good

tell you what its one of the best engine to work on and will run and run

my Jap made Nissan Terrano11. 2.7TDI. Cost a bit more than 500 but a great tow vehicle. Managed to get our club Delta off the beach at Sennan cove at low water last year.
