Off road heaven..

Now this is what 4x4's were invented for... High up in the Pyrenees.. note the Nissan interloper and the 88" with the obligatory open bonnet, but fair play, he drove that 'ol 21/4 all the way down to here from Wolverhampton in one go and it never missed a beat..

Talking about 4X4 in the continent Europe or in UK seems to me a bit odd I have been taking trips on several occasions where people are taking slopes and hills like that is end of the world I must say those people havenīt been to the wilderness yet. Over here almost all 4X4 are modified like we have done to this Hummer

Go on then Manos where do I get one at that price from then?

Love my new Nissan - my second, don't go off road but it's great for picking up supplies and towing boats!

I wouldnīt even sell mine for that price, you might get US army surplus for that but then you need to spend another EUR 20.000
