Guys

I am so sorry but I tried to move some posts her to a new topic but (per ongeluk) moved all posts over and in doing so lost all the existing voting info. So can you please redo your vote and to keep this thread clean keep posts relevant to your choice only. Here goes the old stuff again

I had already read about Piet's Nissan adventures on his site, before the days when he "saw the light" :mrgreen:

Shortly after, Simon PM'ed me telling me to come look at this site, and I joined. Made sense, a dedicated Hilux site, and amazing that there wasn't one before.

I was looking around for a good Hilux to buy so I stumbled across this site.

And, whooohoooooo! I bought a damn nice and clean red 1992, 2.2p with 150 000 on the clock this afternoon from the original owner - and old toppie, nogal a retired bank manager - who looked after it very nicely thank you very much!

I'll post picture as soon as I get a chance to take them.

OK, since this story is about how I found the Hilux 4x4 website, I will tell it to you like it really and truly happened. I have to warn you, that this story is very, very sad and so, if you're the kind of person who cries a lot, well, this is not the story for you.


It all started last year, when my wife came home from a girls trip down in Sodwana, with a big surprise for me. It was a turtle! You can imagine that I was pretty darn excited, considering that I am the biggest fan of turtles there is. But, I did feel sort of funny about this gift; the turtle was a wild turtle, from the Ocean, and we didn't even really know what to feed him. But, I put all of that out of my head, I was glad that my wife had thought of me, and that was what really mattered. Besides, I had my own turtle!


For the first few weeks, well months, actually, the turtle hardly ever moved from his position his house, which was just a Rubbermaid tub. My wife said that he was just a stupid lump, the way he never moved, so I decided to call him "Lump". Also, because "Lump" is a song by my favorite band.


Lump's lack of movement was not very good. We kept thinking that he was DEAD! But soon he would move a bit, and we would know he was just sleeping. This went on for a while. "How long could a turtle hybernate for?" We all asked, but never got an answer to; until FINALLY he moved. By then, it was already nearing summer.

Well, as spring started to come around, my wife thought that it would be a good idea to put Lump outside in his own pond. I liked this idea very much because I wanted Lump to be happy, and I was sure that a pond would make his extactic! So, my wife went to Builders Warehouse and bought a nice pond. We set him out there, but he just stayed in the mud. This made me very upset, but I was sure he was happy.


My wife thought otherwise. And when mosquito larvea started growing in the pond, my wife said that the turtle would have to go. I was devistated. I loved that turtle! Even though he never really played with me or moved much, I still loved him. I thought that he was the most interesting turtle in the world. But, it was dangerous to have mosquitos growing in our front yard, so my wife dug up the pond, and took the turtle to an animal shelter. She said that it was the right thing to do, but it was still sad to have to lose my first and only turtle. I hope he is OK. I'll never see him again, so I can only imagine where he is or what he is doing. But, I'll always remember you Lump! I loved you!

And then one day I searched for Hiluxes on google and clicked on this website link.

Both my directors are avid Toyota fans but have moved from the Hilux to Landcruisers. They both directed me to your site when i started asking questions when i bought my Hilux. i do look at other forums but this one kicks @ss!

I was googleying for Hilux information and found you guys.

Google rules !
To be happy, a man must have a wife.
If it is lucky, he found a understanding and lovely women to share his dreams, and that make a man happy.
If not, he found a virago, naggy women and that torn a man in to a philosopher.
A philosopher is a happy free man.

S'Right! Australians do not understand big English words. That's why they were sent there in the first place!

I was looking to cause some trouble and googled "the most gullible people on earth".

Google then sent me to the Nissan site, but even I felt too sorry for these poor buggers to ruin their lives any more than they have done allready. I then decided to rather stay out of trouble and look for info on my Hilux... :twisted:

I googled it as well, and came up with this:
Sometimes I think American voters are the most gullible people on earth. What else would explain the fact that, by current polls, at least half the United States citizenry would reelect Bush? Despite the lies, the tawdry past, the mess in Iraq, the shady corporate and Saudi connections, the profligate economic and tax policies, etc.

I tend to agree with Patsy Kintz...
