The Mud Life Issue 12 March 2020

Turner’s Torque

Yay, it’s March! After the incredibly long January, monsoon February we can actually feel Spring on the horizon with more daylight in the evening and warmer rain.

We have another packed issue for you, but I think I want to shake the magazine up a bit for you all, but I’m not sure how. If you have any suggestions of what you would like to see less and more of, send us a quick email to: [email protected]

I’m always grateful when manufacturers invite me on vehicle launches, not only do they put us up at the best hotels then feed and water us, but we getmthe opportunity to drive their latest offerings. However, nothing beats having the vehicle for a weeks loan to find out if you really like it or not. With that in mind, in this month’s issue we have two vehicles that I’ve previously featured in The Mud Life; SsangYong Korando and Isuzu D-Max XTR.

Although I’ve no intention of getting rid of Deux Smurf, our 1996 Toyota Surf, I don’t know about you lot, but every so often I get strange urges to buy weird, wonderful, and probably crap 4x4s. In all honesty, it’s a good job we’re skint!

Not far from Muddy Towers there’s someone who drives around in a Dodge Nitro. It’s a big boxy thing with huge arches and a ridiculously big chin.

I’m fairly confident that most people would walk straight past it on a garage forecourt, but it’s the target of one of my strange urges. Give it a bit of a lift, throw some muds on it, a roof rack with a roof tent… someone stop me, please!

I have a similar urge for a H2. Ridiculous things, I know, but I’d love one, just for a week mind.
