Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Hello we are certainly a Toyota Family


Recommended Posts

Hi  I am Colin and along with my wife we are now the proud owners of our 5th Yaris, this time a hybrid car, the all new Yaris cross.

All the others were manual gearbox models, this is the first car we have had without a handbrake lever 🤩, so it’s been fun getting accustomed to that as well as having automatic transmission.

Our 3 grown up daughters all have Toyota Cars, 2 Yaris and 1 Auris and apart from a couple of punctures my wife has had, we have never had one break down, very reliable and good on running costs.

thanks for allowing us to join

Colin

Hello Colin - welcome to Toyota Owners Club.

Is that a West Yorkshire Daimler?

Welcome to the forum Colin, the Toyota’s are a little bit easier on juice than the Daimler 👍👏

Thats very true Bernard, the Daimler returns a good 10 MPG, but I can take  70 passengers with me 🙂

With a full load, that's very respectable!

Awesome. 

Years ago I had a 1964 Vas1 Bedford Bella Vista. Three quarter coach. Had the old Bedford 330 with a 4 speed crash box. 

Wonderful thing to drive.

10mpg with 70 people is equivalent to 700mpg! :eek:  :laugh: 

 

 

I was wondering about that, are you sure ? I suppose so, if 70 cars did the same distance.

 The ones I worked on had the open platform at the back. Of course it’s so long ago, I imagine they were built to specification for local bus companies.
