I got the car back yesterday - yet to give it a good run.

Don't forget to take the recovery kit.

Tweaksta, I believe the Paj sport is based on the challenger platform with the live rear axle. The Pajero is a completely different (and in my opinion, better) all independent suspension. We love our new to us NP diesel auto. Dunno when itíll become the offroad machine, but weíre loving the extra space and the diesel grunt.

If you havenít already, check out www2.pajeroclub.com.au

@Kevin - you had money for a bottle shop run after all of that?? Well done!! In Alice did they have a one visit per day policy at the bottle shops? I ask as thatís what we came across during our time in Broome (unfortunately subi-less)

Cheers

@El_Freddo

and the Challenger is a Triton wagon! ;-)

Had to show my licence for each visit to the bottle shop in Alice but didn't need to go more than once a day :-) Police are in attendance at these shops and I was chatting with one of the boys in blue and alcohol related offences of various types have dropped dramatically since this action - which is a great outcome.

I take it that this has also put a dent in the sly grog business as well Kevin?
It is good the hear that this ruling has had the desired effect on alcohol related offenses in the outback, something needed to be done and this simple one is working.
