25 years old and still going strong

My wagoneer is close to 25 years old (albeit restored) and I've just got home from it's first major test.

I drove from South Africa into Botswana (and back a week later) which is a journey of about 10 hours with myself and 3 others in the car and shed loads of baggage at speeds of up to 160 Kilometres per hour (100 mph) and she didn't miss a beat. The only hold ups were for fuel and a flat tyre on a dirt road. (bloody stupid place to hide a spare wheel !)........ the car impressed the hell out me.

My only criticism was the brake fade that occurs at prolonged braking from high speed.

Now if I can only work out how to make the tailgate close properly on both sides whilst still allowing the electric window to work properly I'll be delighted!!!!
