Bush Tucker Man

Anyone here ever watch the TV series
Bush Tucker Man with Les Dibbins in the earlly 90's. Driving around the Australian outback in a D 110 living off the land. Been looking for video clips on the net and can't find any.

AFAIK, the Australian army has not retired any of these vehicles!!! They were too well built I guess. Plus there is nothing available to replace them with....

They have been converting them to newer engines and gearboxes, but which strengthen, galavnized chassis' and strengthened axles, they just keep working.
