A true icon of the New Zealand mini-truckin’ scene is with­out a doubt Clint Drap­per’s ‘DAM LO’ Nis­san Navara. Airbagged with an 89mm body drop and an SR20DET un­der the bon­net, it was wild for the time, but what re­ally set the ute apart was the body­work, es­pe­cially in the tray area, which fea­tured a cus­tom-metal-formed in­ner tub. The Navara was a tro­phy-hauler dur­ing the auto-salon days and con­tin­ued to trans­form af­ter our fea­ture, even get­ting a very wild in­te­rior with Per­spex seats shaped like women and a cen­tre-mounted sub­woofer in­stall. It’s long since left Clint’s ownership and can be found in the South Is­land still look­ing as good as it did in ’05.
