    I've a 91 pajero that's going to hit the 30 next year. The Doe is out. It's off the road a while now.

    If I get the doe done soon, before the 30 Mark, will I have tiger it done again when I register as vintage or will it carry through?

    You won't have to do it again, will be good up to the expiry date,

    You'll have to have it to tax it though, even for vintage tax.

    Don't forget the CVRT once over 30 years old lasts 2 years, 1 year if under 30.

    I do but I'll have to resize on the laptop first.

    Always likes those type Pajeros. With the jack under her, it looks like you have a bit of work ahead of you before you get her on the road.

    Needs an exhaust , I jacked it up because the wheel was flat and went off the rim.

    Here's a tip
    I was trying to pump it and hold it on at the same time. I dropped the Jack just a bit, but some timber on the floor and kicked in tight with my heel. I could push it in at ten and two o clock and the air held enough to pump it.

    Wow, that's a nice looking Pajero. They were everywhere at one stage, the go to farming tool before the 90 series Landcruiser.

    I had a deep green '93 LWB 2.5 for years. Jap import. Was a 7 seat passenger that I converted to commercial. Great jeep, but the 2.5 was very under powered for a LWB and the gearing was low. 125kph was 4000 rpm! crossed the country twice a week in it for 3 years. Even the adjustable shocks still worked! Only had to put a new clutch disc in it (to mane to pay for full kit as it was DM version and more expensive) got the alternator refurbished, and fitted a push button for the glow plugs when the control unit in the passenger footwell packed up.

    They are great machines and Mk2s will be collectable, even more so than mk1s, due to their huge popularity when they were current.

    Would love to buy it back again actually. Went down to Wexford/ Waterford I think. Wonder if it's still about.

    That Pajero design is just timeless. You could ask someone on the street and they'd never guess it's 30 years old.

    Passed test today, 2 rear tyres was all that she needed.

    I learned to drive in a '89 fourtrack and had a good fe year hooting around in the same road tractor. I always envied the Pajero and thought they were a 911 compared to the fourtrack. Age has been kind to them too.
    My dream car is a pajero evo https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1257648
