    Heard about the Jackaroo bill…ouch!!!

    • Mal says:

      After comprehensive research on the interwebs, the consensus is that Jackaroo owners are pleased to pay the regular repair bills to be driving such a magnificant utility vehicle. Holden don’t make them anymore because they were so popular that people bought one, and never bought another vehicle. I have one available for a modest consideration.

      [Meantime the BMW needs a front ABS sensor and a rear suspension rebuild. I accidentally cleaned it and found a broken spoke – that would explain what I thought was a final drive whine and vibration].

    Less than $25 a day, or less than 3c a vertical metre for all the adventure you can poke a stick at – good value in anyone’s book. Thanks for your organisation, Mark …

    Yes, thank you one and all for a life changing experience, hills will never be the same….I like to eat them for breakfast, but still struggle with letting go on the other side…;)
