    Around Australia in 14 days.

    You have two weeks, what car do you take and who do you take with you?
    History is a statement, the future is a question.

    Probably a Ranger Raptor given the extra performance and ability to cope with poor roads and the kids.

    someone who you trust behind the wheel, someone you can have a serious chat with, someone you can have a laugh with, someone that has similar music tastes
    hopefully all these people are actually one person

    F6x, as long as it comes with a fuel card.

    Enough power to have fun, rough roads shouldn't worry it too much and plenty of room for activities.

    Take the misso if course, but she won't be driving Bugger all, I don't have a death wish.

    Rental Ranger XLT or Everest. That way I can drive anywhere (and I mean ANYWHERE) and everywhere and then hand it back when I am finished. Take the wife and some mates.

    Not clear being only road or offroad use but......
    For minor off road and road use I'd like to have a run in the latest Range Rover Velar V6 as thats all it has or a Cayanne GTS.
    Mrs's would be too much of a boat anchor so Elle would do I suppose.

    My AU Fairmont Ghia..... With std wheels bolted back on and two spares

    It has already been around oz before the 150k mark

    Now it has reached the 250k mark and just recently I have replaced everything from coil pack to steering rack so it would be rock solid and require little attention unless I broke the windscreen?

    My 2c anyway
