Hi Patrol fanatics.

Post by FKC0101FS » 14 Nov 2013 10:20

So this is me introducing myself, I live on the banks of the Vaal dam and work as a boat builder/ harbour manager at our family business "Manten Marina".
My father always had Nissan Safari bakkies when I was young and we could not wait to be piled into the back for a holiday, so my love for Nissan was instilled in me.
I bought my own first Nissan Patrol SGL when I was 23 and have kicked my ass ever since for selling it, recently I bought a 2001 Nissan Patrol GL and have been like a child at christmas everytime I climb in her.
We arrange a 4x4 fun day once a year here in Deneysville and I will Definatly let you all know when it is for a get together.
