See the a short snippet of the grill assembly here and when they use it from 6:37 on.

They have been using this thing all the time since then, and been praising it until today:

This car had incredible off road capabilities. And with the front wheel drive, when you drove backwards, you could get up even the steepest trails.

But the technology was a disaster. It had the French version of the Prince Of Darkness and would have needed at least two Water Ingress Manuals. And forget about the brakes.
It is funny when we look back at our lives.
Last Sunday my wife and I went to look at a prize home being raffled off for charity.
When we walked in there was a man, 64 years old, directing visitors.
I recognised him from when I was in my early 20's and lived a different life.
Back then we drank too much, partied hard, abseiled off buildings and kicked down doors.
Guns, booze, woman, violence and hormones were the name of the game.
Here we were two old men, we started to share memories that we both wished we had forgotten.
Next week we are meeting up for a drink.
Not sure if it will be a positive or a negative.
Damn we had some fun though

That's worth a tear and a laugh at the same time.

I understand you very well. Many of us will, I guess.
I have said in the past two things.
I don't believe the life I have lead...and I was there at the time.
I wasn't born old and fat....I chose that so I could live longer.

The tents look pleasantly large.

Does anybody know the brand?

Wait they didn't use a roof top tent that is required to overland. This makes me think Nambia trip was done on some movie lot with animals photo shopped in.
