I was posted in the UK in the early 80's and I can't recall ever seeing a pickup truck. It is good seeing the Navara is doing well and seems to have quite the following.
I own a Nissan Frontier aka Navara...I wish mine had the diesel engine! If only for that reason I'd say the Navara has one up on the Frontier.

I guess some people would like something they can't have... :D
I started this post by saying I don't recall seeing any pickups in the UK in the early-mid 1980's. Were there many on the road or have I drank too many beers and forgot?
Also, this may sound like a stupid question, but do you call the Navara a pickup or is that an American term.
I have been tripped up more than once between the difference of English and American.

Hi again,

I think pick up is a term we use in the UK, I certainly do anyway.

You are right about pick up's been rare in the 80's, I think back then they were a 'workhorse only', and very few people would have considered them a fashionable alternative to a car.

i call mine a " Truck "

as a Pickup sounds like something you do at a Bar :lol:

ITs only just started ( With the Navara ) that Pickups are Nice to Drive and have all the mod cons.

The 80s and 90s and even early 2000s, they were inductrial things that only farmers owned. :lol:
