Hi guys
Since aborting my planned overland trip I have decided to relocate the family to South Africa but taking my vehicle seems a bit too expensive so I'm looking to sell my vehicle in the UK and buy a 75 or 78 series LC direct from Oz and importing it into Zimbabwe or SA. Does anyone have any connections that might help me make enquiries into such a plan?

Cost...I know people in Zim who have imported their cruisers from Aus at a much lower cost than buying from SA - better spec too.

If buying an ex NZ car, make sure that all of the wool is taken out from the cracks between the front seats as I have heard that the farmers put 2 in the front and take them on drives to convenient cliffs. Once there, well we all know why the farmers go to cliffs dont we.

They also say that about the Welsh, but aren't you from the country where men are men and sheep are scared? ;)

There are very few 78 or 79 series Landcruisers in New Zealand. Heaps more imported 80 and 100 series but watch the mileage (most have been clocked or wound back before they were inported to New Zealand). Also watch the diesels and turbo models as they don't like the lack of maintenance that they recived in Japan and can prove to be expensive to get right.
