It drives. :D

In honor of our returning Patrol enthusiast, Daner, today I donned the straw hat, and my younger of 2 and I braved the hot sun, and took the 66 for it's first short spin up the street and back...



Nothing major- never shifted above 2nd, and never topped 25mph, but the steering, suspension and drivetrain feel tight. There is a speedbump halfway down our street and I hit that sucker at 25 just to see if any of the wheels would fall off.. ;)

Trans is noisy because the cover isn't back on it yet, and because, well: Nissan Patrol... 8-)

Truck barely has brakes- they need to be bled some more

But yeah- I'm THRILLED. I just checked some old photos, and this is the first time this Patrol has moved under its own power since Dec, 2014.

Can we get a close up of the driver. I have been wondering since 2014 what this crazy mofo looks like.

He looks just like his 60Patrol user avatar...

Just ask Pdub, RiverPatrol, or CoyotePatrol


This is me, right?

What she meant to say was: "Yup, just a bald dude. With a hat on.
