That's the idea.  :grin:

Have you seen the damage 'roos can do?!

Just put 'kangaroo damage car' into Google image search and check it out.  :shocked:
Just because you're offended doesn't make you right.

Oh yeah did I mention its got a 180l petrol tank...$260 to fill it up :lipsrsealed: :grin:

That's mental.

Three times the size of the tank in my red Golf.

Bet it won't go three times as far.  :grin:

Umm I dont think it will :lipsrsealed: should do 1300km on a tank.....

And its not just roo's you got to watch out for its emu's, cows, donkeys, camels and eagles as well!!!

That was a bloodly long day! Set off at 6am on the train to Perth :sick: 7 hours later with a head ache from screaming kids I get to Perth.

Got to the dealers and had a good look at the cruiser and its in very good condition, so commence the paper work...

One and half hours later and am now the owner of a Land Cruiser and set off on the 650km drive back home.

Got home at 11.15pm!!!

And to say am impresses would be an understatement, its very quiet, smooth, comfy and quick (for a 2.5t car) but f**king drinks the juice..... :lipsrsealed:

Driving back to Perth Sunday to collect the things I shipped over back in January, will be taking a trailer with me. Never towed before to Ill jump in at the deep end and do a 1300km round trip with one :grin:

Ill get some pics tomorrow once Ive washed off the 10000 bugs on the windscreen.
