I’m over the moon with this little Toyota. I can barely contain my excitement at the prospect of going rallying in this little gem.

I’ve completed my apprenticeship on track and now it’s time to get onto some gravel. It has long been my dream to go rallying and lately we have been keeping an eye on trade me for a car to get started in. I’ve been told by a number of people that a fwd 1600 is the best way to learn so seeing this car on trade me yesterday got me really excited. Fastward 24 hours and after driving all day to get it from New Plymouth I now own my first rally car!

It has a few small things to sort out before it’s race ready and some things need to be organised like getting a rally license but man am I excited by the prospect of going hard out on the loose stuff.
