isuzu

Got something to say, but it's not classic related? Here's the place to discuss. Also includes the once ever-so-popular word association thread... (although we've had to start from scratch with it - sorry!)

happy christmas chaps :lol:

i went & had a look at a isuzu grafter yesterday, and its a truck thats seems genuine with history, although its not in the proper book, all handwritten into a book supplied by the chaps local commercial dealer.. ive tried to find out what the fuel consumption is for a 2005 3.0 diesel grafter but all i have found is confusing.. its either 10 mpg or 28 mpg.. ive tried google but thats confusing me even more.. anyone have any experience of these things.... :?

That all handwritten into a book would scare me off. Mind you don't get your wallet burnt Rich.

I thought you wanted a tipper truck not just a mascot for one ;)

Rich, that's a lot of dosh and a lot of miles for a ten year old van. Before you go for it, have the drive train thoroughly checked out; front wheel drive takes an awful hammering. In fact, for the age and mileage (can't get my tongue around kilometerage,) it's got to be worth spending a couple of hundred's worth of shekels and have an engineer's report.

That Renault thingummyboab looks pretty decent for a builder's truck, don't forget that native French vehicles have the clutch pedal in the middle with the brake on the far right and the throttle is missing as that was borrowed by Belgium last June, but they still haven't negotiated terms for giving it back.
