That one was a 2 ltr TCIC, the safari that started it all.

Best of luck for your new buy.

Waiting for your Safari pics

Great to see the white elephant lumbering up that steep slope, but there seems to be a cloud of brown gas being emitted out the rear end! Hope it's not toxic, LOL!

So you had a blast at your first OTR!?

The last of the lot from the archives - Monday mornings are concerningly becoming workless.

@adc You just have to stop doing this. I just do not have cash right now - the recession is here and the job market's shaky. And you just go on and on inducing drool ..... not fair!

One can argue both ways, but one must decide for one's own self, and a good data point is very useful for that.

And post of ADC 'temptations', this happens:

Oh well.
But one thing's for sure, the next change is a Safari for sure. The wife, and even the kids, are totally for it. Who knows, may even be a 4x4

@adc, your trip is surely the stuff of dreams. And may I say thats one colour in which the Safari actually looks prettier dirty than clean!

adc, Your right side fog light is loosened. I hope you have voluntarily fitted it on your LX.

Drooling is what at least one can still do now quite a lot in the recession times - went for some mental peace after a workless Monday morning.

PS: Sialorrhea - Drooling in a resting [≈ recession] phase!!


Zenx, surely good luck on this fruitful waiting so that it materializes to a 2.2 4wd. How much better can it be?

Definitely it was an aftermarket fitment and was not fixed so tightly, the first picture out here does not have the fog lights. It disloged itself on rough Lahaul paths/roads - have fixed them now securely
