So, the day came to say goodbye my trusty and very much loved Babe Mobile – the Isuzu KB 300. And although I am absolutely over the moon by the delivery of the new spec KB 300 LX – a much bigger and more sophisticated ride for our Bush Babes excursions, I cannot help but feel sad about letting the old one go. Here’s a little light hearted tribute to the Isuzu Babe Mobile and a special thanks to Isuzu and the Isuzu Off-road Academy for entrusting her to me for the past 17 months and 27 000km. What memories we’ve made!
Goodbye Babe Mobile
(to the tune of Goodbye Norma Jean)
Good-bye Babe Mobile
You were so loved my all
You had the grace to crawl low range
While those around you sprawled
And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a legend for the Babes
Always knowing who to cling to
When the strain set in
And I would have liked to have kept you
But I was just a Babe
Your wrapping came off long before
You reached the Eastern Cape….
(I told you it was light hearted)
