No idea why the Toy is shown off the bitumen (even if it is 2wd ute stuff) & the 'bishi in a carpark, as a review in the Sunday paper put the Paj Sport a wee bit ahead off road?

Gone the way of the Defender. Had to happen, I guess.

What future for Mitsubishi Pajero? (http://www.4x4australia.com.au/news/1511/what-future-for-pajero/)

Back in WW2 allied soldiers were told that Asian men were short sighted because of the shape of their eye's,the more I look at vehicles like these two the more I'm starting to believe there is some truth in that rumour. Pat

All we need is the Seppo's to throw the steering wheel on the other side (no great engineering prowess required surely ?? ) and we can have a tremendous range of very cheap seperate chassis 4wd's out here. Not to mention all the Dodge and F series trucks.

Even Jeremy Clarkson that hates the things... In the episode where he drove the Ford Raptor .... reckons they were brilliant given they were basically the price of a spec'd up ford fiesta in the UK :o If they could import those F150's for ~ $50,000aud ... they'd take the market.

I can already see all the middle aged women flocking to them 'cos they obviously look stupid at school pickup time driving a "little" 3.5ton cruiser..... Must keep up with the Jones and all of that :D

Back in 2002 I bought my 2003 F350 PSD (the last year for them before moving to the 6.0) for $45k fully loaded :)

I disagree. While the dakar models were highly modified, quite a bit of it was based off the Pajero Evo, which was a short production homologation model. the dakar rules would stipulate what changes can be made, but I could guarantee that more than just the body stayed the same.
You can read about it here
Meet The Mitsubishi Pajero Evo: The Last Forgotten Homologation Special (http://jalopnik.com/meet-the-mitsubishi-pajero-evo-the-last-forgotten-homo-1704009601)

The specs are actually pretty good relative to the base model offering.
An acquaintance of mine had one for a few years, it looked pretty radical for a street car

The pajero dakar performance was pretty good overall. They won a number of times, whcih has to amount to at least a small bit of praise.

I agree, the Paj is a great car and very underated, and I'm fairly sure they were in the same race class that the Land Rover Bowlers were in.

I thought the Pajero was a better package than the Prado.

When I sold my D2 I bought a Pajero (couldn't afford a D4).
Nice to use as a daily driver and touring 4WD.
Great performer in the desert.

Not the character of my D2, but very easy to live with.
