I love my 95 D1. It has been a labor of love though. I have spent ALOT of time keeping it maintained and there have been several challenges with upgrades. My intention has always been to make a offroad capable overland vehicle out of it. It all depends on your intended use as to which model you pick. Earlier are more simple but later do seem to have more space in the cargo area. Not sure why that is except the trim is better designed.
"That night we lay in our tent, looking at the stars and listening to the sound of the city. It does not sound like any other city at night. We hear heated discussions and a few fights. Also some gun shots." -Frederik Willems (While camping in the Democratic Republic of the Congo)
