ISUZU KB is tough-as-nails

Nam Wheels - - News -

Some things you just can't kill - which cer­tainly in­cludes the Isuzu KB bakkie. Proof of this can be found on South Africa’s West Coast in the ham­let of Van­ryns­dorp, where the diesel me­chanic Daniël Kotze lives with his young brood and a fleet of old Isuzus: this en­tails three kids and seven of the tough-as­nails KB'S. The new­est is a 2008 KB250, with well over 400,000km. But the prized pos­ses­sion is a (slightly faded) metal­lic blue 1979 model, which came via his grand­fa­ther and fa­ther. It joined the fam­ily in 1983 and did over half- a- mil­lion kilo­me­tres with its orig­i­nal en­gine, much of that mileage as a hard- work­ing ' plaas' bakkie, ex­plains Daniël.
