Well i wasn't going to spill the beans but here goes...........I was on the way to taking SWMBO to work last night with the knowledge that the alternator was kaput but with the faith the juice i gave the battery with the charger would see us thru. Wrong!!!!!!! Chugg chugg and nothing.........Called the RAA and they called for a tow. How embarressing i thought. What if someone we know sees us? Worse still....what if a tojo spots us? But then it happened. As we took off in the tow truck i spotted another tow truck in the distance......"some other sucker like us i mentioned" As we got closer to him i notoced it was a 60 Series Cruiser. Woooooooohoooooooo i said to the driver.....don't let that sucker beat you. So it was with great pride i waved to the owners of the 60 as our Isuzu tow truck passes their Isuzu tow truck. We showed those Tojo's alright!!!!

And I thought I had too much time on my hands. Like me, you obviously need to get out more :))

Gee you're a tight arse Brew........why on earth don't you lash out and buy Dawn a treddley so she can get to work under her own steam (and sweat!!!). Then you wouldn't have had to take her to work and wouldn't have been placed in the embarrassing position of being towed by an Isuzu.
Anyway, I guess you salvaged some cred by only being spotted by a 60 series owner in the same predicament (wasn't Pesty by any chance??????)
Better get that alternator fixed, eh?

Brew the only reason you got infront of the Tojo is that the Tow Truck driver has had more experiance towing Trols.
Sorry Stu but you will never win the debate

Ahhhhh some things never change!

Just back from a 10,000 km drive in the Prado (with no problems) and the Nissan is giving strife again!

How was the Corner Country trip Brew? I heard a good time was had by all.
