This weekend has been the opening of the game bird season. With mild, warm weather and clear skies,duck hunters will have had small bags.

I’m not a big fan of duck shooting, but much prefer going after pheasants and quail. It is a real pleasure hunting with dogs as well.

On Friday night I headed off to an undisclosed location in the Taupo region for go after pheasants and quail. As usual I am travelling in my Isuzu D-Max from Southern Autos.

It may well have been a challenge as the new model I have currently came equipped with road tyres only. More on that later.    Read more »

An Isuzu DMAX Shadow and some hunting

DMAX-Shadow

Just before Christmas I picked up another Isuzu D-MAX from my mates at Southern Autos Manukau.

It is the “SHADOW”, a tricked up D-MAX built on the LS model.

The blurb states:

The Isuzu D-MAX SHADOW comes with over $8000 worth of accessories, Limited Edition 20 Wheels, Black Sports Bar, Blacked Out Grille, Blacked Out Mirrors, Black Graphics Package, Reverse Camera, Tinted Windows and much more.

This Limited Edition vehicle is based on the tough and dependable Isuzu D-Max LS Double Cable 4X4 Automatic. Fitted with Air Conditioning, 6 Air Bags, Traction Control System, Electronic Stability Program, USB/AUX, Bluetooth Phone Connectivity, Bluetooth Music Streaming, Cruise Control, Child Seat Anchor Points, Projector Headlights, LED Tail Lights, Factory Running Boards and the list goes on.

Which is all well and good, but what does all that mean for a real bloke who isn’t swayed by marketing speak or upset because CGI animals are talking about getting killed to get into the truck?

Unlike Toyota these trucks don’t need CGI to get animals into the truck; real blokes and proper sheilas kill the animals and chuck them in the back of the truck like they are meant to do. They are proper and real utes, even when tricked out with the accessories.   Read more »

Taxpayer better off and Key fine with Collins’ Southern Autos sponsorship deal

1445201374376

Key said he was happy for Collins to have the sponsorship as long as she was transparent about the deal and how she would benefit from it.

“If she was doing it and nobody knew about it, that would be a different story, but she’s doing it and wants people to know about it, that’s why her face is plastered on the side of the car.

“Look, at the end of the day, under the rules that Parliament set, there are plenty of MPs that take other income and do other things, and you can do that. You just need to declare it, that’s the main issue.” Read more »
