Wow...whole lot of classics out there. GOA is really full of jeeps. Spotted quite a number of good jeeps & gypsies running around, in my recent trip.

sure rally star, we did have a couple of hiccups, water entered our Airfilter, thro the inlet pipe, which was positioed right at the radiator, facing forward, we then winched the jeep, drained the water and 'slushed off', we at that moment 'turned the air intake pipe, so that it was facing backwards, thus reducing the chances of water entering the air filter, Name:  IMG_4668 Small.JPG
