    Default Nooo!!! An mi16 for an XF

    My dad has decided to take his mi16 off the road for a full engine rebuild, (ie lengthy amount of time) and is buying…wait for it…an XF ute to replace it in the meantime…it just won't be the same...

    Default Commiserations

    Back in early seventies Dads company in NZ supplied a fleet of brand new Fiat 125's for the reps!

    Then these were replaced with Foulcans after two years.

    Dad was never the same- Grumpy, Irritable, worn out after every drive that he used to enjoy in the Fiat up over the Kiami Ranges etc.

    I hope things are better for you!

    At least these days there is an abundance of counciling services to cater for such trying times.

    Look on the bright side - now walking will be a far more attractive proposition, and it is better for you as well ( so I am told).
