Black bewdyyy...


My first love... two tons of metal and glass...

Nissan launched the GQ Patrol, also known as the Y60, in 1988. It was aimed fairly and squarely at Toyota's LandCruiser, which was the top-selling four-wheel-drive.

Mine was the long wheelbase high top wagon. My choice of powerplant was the 85kW 4.2-litre diesel inline six. She had overhead-valves and was carburettor fed. The transmission was a five-speed manual and power was delivered to the wheels through a two-speed transfer box.

They don't make em like they used to...
