1979 Toyota Hiace Review
My First Camper Terry Toyota — Buying your first camper is like having your first car all over again.I bought this for 100 quid with half an exhaust which i never replace,if Vw's can get away with it then so can i.Owned it for a 2 years and it never broke down,it was great for beach parties and surfing.Loved the column shift gear change which took a bit of getting used too especially when my old car has the indicator stick in the same place.Cheap on fuel after adding a fuel saver meaning i could riun it on unleaded.Good memories for this bus especially when it costs you nothing!
Pros: Reliable,cheap to run
Cons: Spent a bit on filler and paint though,were a bit prone to rust

Excellent Car. Highly Recommended
Performance: It's a little sluggish when it comes to speed, but it's got a lot of torque because of the diesel engine. And it has a cavernous cargo compartment. Build quality: This thing is solid as ... Read More
