Now his stories:

1. Hello,

My name is Boone Smith and I am an employee of National Geographic television network in South Africa for the last 2 years, that is how I got the bakkie. I shoot a documentary for National Geographic, you can view the documentary on TV as soon it will be ready in few weeks. Here is a little part:
Now I finished the documentary and I moved back to London, England where is my home and to bring the bakkie here for registration I have to pay almost the price of the vehicle so it's to expensive. It is in excellent condition, no accidents, no scratches, no dents, no need for additional repairs, very well maintained. I agree to give you a few days to test it. The bakkie is registered in South Africa on my name so it will be a very easy process. If you decide to buy it I will bring it at your home address anywhere in South Africa. I will wait for your email if you are interested and have the funds ready.
Thank you
