This is the Green Machine. She is a very reliable car that can bring you literally everywhere. She´s been upgraded to go to Namib Desert this year, with full heavy duty suspension, lights, bull bar, cage and roof carrier (perfect for roof tents), 3200kg hand winch, camping conversion, etc.
She doesn’t like it fast (120-140 km/h max), otherwise she starts sweating, hence the perfect car for Tanzanian roads (90 km/h max). She loves being off the road, thats where her strength lies in. She is an old car, that has been refurbished 2015 with a full engine re-build, which makes her almost young again.
I am the second owner in Tanzania, after I bought it from a German friend that had to leave the country and who imported Green Machine from Australia. There, it had one owner and was completely unused in storage for 5 years (12/08 02/14). Also in Storage for the last 5 month.
It is certainly not a car for quick sale. It is a car for enthusiasts who value the high maintenance standard, clean history and the camping conversion.
