A few years ago a mate of mine built a really nice long wheelbase GV, and then sold it because, among other things, it was too nice. I never understood this, until I too built a really nice long wheelbase GV. Now I'm thinking it's a little too nice to go getting all muddy and beat up taking it off road regularly. It will get taken 'laning (in fact it's going next weekend), but I'm now considering building something a little more abusable. I'm thinking either short wherlbase GV, Jimny, or even a Sammy.
Oh the joys of owning a 4x4.
