Jimny is my only vehicle, but I occasionally borrow my father's Toyota Corolla 9 (E12) hatchback with Toyota's 1.6l 81 kW 3ZZ-FE petrol engine and aftermarket LPG fuel supply system installed, when I go on some longer international trips where I do not intend to leave tarmac, and when I also intend to save some cash on fuel :)

Vehicle built in 2006 with only 90 000 km traveled.

Corolla is a superbly well built passenger vehicle. Quality build and not too "electronical".

I might just get away with this?

Not technically my 'other car' as I traded it in yesterday for the new Jimny. But if anyone is interested in the last 7 years of my motoring then you'll find it all here in My iQ Thread

And if anyone is after a good secondhand small car then I would highly recommend an iQ!

1994 Eunos G Limited - spends more time subliminally telling me what needs fixing/tweaking than being driven
That replaced a Sigma 125 Roadsport Caterham which has great fun but very weather dependent.

The Jimny, when I get it, will be my daily, replacing my GT86.

The missus has a Fiesta ST for current sensible duties but I fear that role may swap.

Great collection of Classics Roger! I wanted a TC but got a an MG J2 - Im sure you'll know what that is.
The Kestrel is a beautiful car.
I've a friend selling a Riley Brooklands and another with a 1936 A7 Ruby.

Whereabouts do you live?

Thanks Max,
I am in Dorset.
Yes, I know of the J2 model, an iconic MG for sure.
I have traced the history of my TC which you can read here if interested:
ttypes.org/ttt2/the-adventures-of-mg-tc2456
The Riley has been mine since 1986 and my daily driver for many years - but now retired - like me!
I bought the Austin 7 in 2002 thinking it is the same car as I previously owned in the 1960s. The paper trail says it is, but on delving further it is not and was the object of some shenanigans by a number plate dealer. Never mind, I still love it!
The VW camper was bought in 2000 to use when I got a job 100 miles away with a vintage Bentley restorer and didn't fancy commuting. I enjoyed this hippy life so much that it is still my preferred holiday accommodation.
I got the Jimny as an MOT failure only 3 months ago, mainly to use around our fields, but it didn't take long to recognise what a little character it is and so I have done the necessary for it to take its MOT test tomorrow morning.
Cheers,
Roger

Crikey - it sounds like you and I are straight out of the same mould! Your tenacity in seeking the history of the TC is not disimilar to my own - I traced the first owner of the J2 and we met-up in thje late 80s. (stupidly I never took photos of the event but have a good collection of letters). By chance and some detective work, I'm now firm friends with the son of the second owner who trialled the car very successfully in 1934 and 1935!. I really should sit down and write the sequence of events and ownership of mine but recently some skulduggery was unearthed and I found the car wasn't actually sold to me by the owner, so some discretion needed here! its all above board now but it might not be prudent to stir things up.

The TC story is a terrific read (I doff my cap to you). I've only ever driven a TC once and that was a cream one owned by a fellow called John Andrews (Oxon) who also has a K3 replica!
I notice acknowledgement to Roger Furneaux - he supplied my modified half-shaft seals for the J - deffo the way forward

Oddly my J2 spent some time in Dorset - at Lulworth army camp, and was probably taxed in Wareham, so we have a very slight connection :) I also bought the Rotax headlamps from Willy McKenzie of Austin Seven Repro.
