Heya guys,

Had Jim Carroll, the world's most awesome concreter, come to my house today to do some work out the back.

He rocked up in an aging, 1987 Isuzu dual-cab truck.

Although 1980s trucks are not exactly my passion, it was so old I really had to check it out!

He said, "You know, I could afford to buy a new truck tomorrow, but I'm loathe to get rid of this one; it's never, ever let me down once".

It's lacking a LOT compared to today's trucks; doesn't even power steering!

It's not pretty....(neither is my weeds collection in the front yard... shut up it's rained a lot!)

Good spottin' Dave! I'm heading to the truck wreckers to score some white deluxe armrests! Too 8-) !

Don't waste a casting, Isuzu!

Cheers, Matt.

Truth be known, Farmer, the late, great Ken Bloor once told me they were available NOS thru Isuzu for the 1991 trucks.

I looked inside a 1991 and it was nowhere near right.... but I figured the correct model was out there!

I can't vouch for the NOS thing either, but I'm glad I've finally seen one!

Cheers,


Dave
