Sorry to hear about your grandfather.Nice patrol by the way.Very good trucks they are.I recently got one,i have a 1990 GQ LWB (blue on silver)3inch lift/33inch tyres plus more.i bought it cause i wanted to start going off road and doing four wheel driving but also it is a very good tow vehicle.Mine only a 4.2 petrol carbi and auto but still goes good,not that good on fuel around town but on trips isnt too bad at all.
Just give it a good clean and enjoy it.Hey if your interested i can take some pics of it forya so you can have a look at.cheers
