Tok Pisin with Isuzu Lu: Hey, Poro!

Lu: "Hey, Poro ... Mobeta yu baim wanpela Isuzu Utility ... Ol i strongpela moa ... inap long karim ol kain kain kago long baksait ... Yu traim, laka!?!"

Lou: "Hey, Friend ... You'd do better to buy an Isuzu Utility ... They're very strong ... enough to carry all kinds of cargo in back ... Try it, okay!?!"
This is a scan from a faded old photocopy of a cartoon ad by Bob Browne for New Guinea Motors in the Papua New Guinea Post-Courier, 1976. I've got a lot more, but I'll have to limit my scanning to just a sample because I see that the author/illustrator has published a collection of these cartoons. I just bought the last copy of Isuzu Lu Book 5 available on Amazon.com.
