Very interesting transmission tunnel modification to fit the Isuzu box.
It wouldn't be right if someone in country-ish Victoria didn't perform some type
of "bush mechanic" modification to an old girl like this.
Let me see.............
Farmer thinks to himself,
"Geez, the old Mazdas got a shagged diff! What have I got that I can make fit?"
"I know Nan's old Wolseley is sitting up the back corner of the paddock as a chicken coop, it was running when I parked it."
"Bugger me, that'll do! I'll make it fit!"Cut and shut to fit the diff. Get the old girl going again.
"Stone the flamin' crows, Narelle, the motor looks like it's shat itself! What are we going to do now?"
"Hmmm, let me see? What other car have we got laying around not doing anything?"
"Know wot, Junior's old diesel Gemini is the ticket. It hasn't gone anywhere since he moved to the big smoke."
"It'll run on the smell of an oily rag! Gotta be better than that old gas guzzler 1500!"Install diesel Gemmy motor, hack tunnel and make everything fit!
"Shoulda done this sooner, now the ute is giving me 40mpg and all I have to do to fill her up is to drain the livestock truck fuel tank
every coupla weeks. It's saving me shit loads in fuel. Bloody bonza idea, that!"
"Aahhh, Bugger me! Now I'm driving this ute more often, the seats are starting to knacker me back on the trip down to the abattoir!"
"What am I gonna do now?"
"I know, Smithy had this little Jap coupe sittin' there in his spud paddock holdin' up the fence. Wonder what the go is?"
"Smithy, what's the go with the dunger up the front paddock? Does it still have seats?"
Smithy says, "Yeah bloke, still got the seats. The missus thought it was too small for the 10 of us to go to church, so we drove it till it stopped.
Them bucket seats sure were comfy, though. Beat the heck out of the old bench seat in the Holden. You want 'em, go for your life?"
"You bloody bewdy, mate! Just what the doctor ordered!"
And so on........It really does sort of conjure up those images!
