Well nothing overly exciting here. Its not a fancy ex cop car or a GT350R. But it is a 1993 Mitsubishi Pajero RHD 2.8TD :rofl:. For some reason I have always wanted one of these to beat on during the winter months. And happen to find one crazy cheap. Obviously these are built in Japan and this one was exported to the UK. I have been fixing little things here and there since I drove it home from South Boston(1000miles) when it was freezing out. Parts are fairly cheap just sucks I have to wait for them to come from UK/New Zealand and Canada if I am lucky. This one has all the bells and whistles. Matter of fact has so many buttons and knobs not sure what they all do. But its nice to have the center diff/rear diff and adjustable suspension. Its also nice it only has 131k (Kilometers). Although I have been scraping/pouding and sanding frame for days!!. Damn UK winters.

Yes that was me :rofl:. I had a RHD 200TDI Land Rover Discovery. I much prefer this one though. Driving a 5 speed RHD stick with like 120 HP became tiresome. Plus my knees kept hitting all the side panels LOL.

This is definitely a cool suv.

So are the x5m and Land Cruiser gone?

And why don't you ever post stuff you sell on here? haha

Not everyone. I bought a car on here. I would have been interested in the 7 series and x5m for sure.

Definitely neat. And with your recent purchases you have me looking at Chicago Motors for a eco boost explorer lol.
They pop up every once in a while. They also have cars that either haven’t been delivered or haven’t been gone thru yet or posted on their site so a call to let them know what you’re looking for can’t hurt. Ted has been who I’ve dealt with both times I purchased.

Perfect. Thanks for the heads up. I have been watching a couple on ebay as well.
