This thread does seem to prove that the average hijet owner has far from average motoring tastes.

Loving the little SJ, they are really good off road and put all the landys to shame.

I used to have a Lada Cosak many moons ago, and that would put many Land/Range Rovers etc to shame. Mega cheap too......

I had a 1978 Series 3 Landy Very Happy

with a early 90's Discovery 200Tdi tuned to ~130bhp and probably close to 250lb-ft of torque Twisted Evil

with a set of 235/85R16 BF Mud Terrains (the newer KM2 style), I never got it stuck......
would go anywhere without hesitation Laughing




I miss my landy Sad

affraid Suspect


whats not sensible about the Hijet?

its fairly economical, fairly cheap to maintain, comfortable (even for big stocky blokes!), goes fairly well....
it has more cubic space in the back than a Transit Connect van.....
it has good visibility (better than most vans of its 'size')
its entertaining to drive, and will fit in places others can only dream off :p


whats not sensible about that!

Don't get me wrong, i needed a van and could've bought something else but i liked the Hijet and it was practical enough for my needs, but the real reason i bought one over another make was i've always liked quirky thngs, mine's was bought solely to shift stuff from our house renovations, as cheep as chips, no frills transport. It's now got alloys, bucket seats, sports steering wheel, CD player....... cheers

Mk1 MR2's are much better than this shiny new one, the rust makes them lighter Wink

Sold it to a youngster, last words of wisdom i say; "be careful, the back end breaks away quickly, you need to be on it to catch it"

Somehow i guessed he was thinking than this old fart didn't know how to drive quickly anymore

They are a bit of a handful when they let go. Not for the inexperienced or stupid.
