Evening guys, As some of may have seen I've been looking for a Jimny the last few weeks.

After a lot of messages too and from (Been working offshore) I finally found a decent one (Man there is some rubbish out there)

Chatted with the owner Saturday night, totally honest, plenty of videos, photos etc etc..... by 4pm Sunday she was at my house.I do believe she used to belong to the owner on here? I've already had a little play in her this morning, and looking for lots more fun in her.Basically, she's a winter play toy for me and my little girl.

There's a nice greenlane up towards the Sychnant Pass, but it is actually a dead-end although it doesn't look like it "on the ground"...



Running up from the blue arrow to the orange arrow is this "BOAT" (ByWay Open to All Traffic - I'm not sure what your greenlaning experience and knowledge is yet), when you reach the orange arrow, it looks like the track leads on, but the Right Of Way only extends to the end of the BOAT ( +-+-+-+-+- ) as shown on the map... After that, over the brow of the hill and down the gravel, through the gate, and over the head of the valley "cliff face" road to the car park where the ice cream sometimes parks, is all private road, as signed, and the land-owner can be rather funny about it... :(

So it's officially up to the top, enjoy the stunning views of Conwy / Castle, and then about-face and back the way you came I'm afraid...

Less than 24 hours of having her, I went up there for a nosey bud :)

I actually started at the top and worked my way down, until I thought it was a bit iffy alone so turned round and worked my way back up.

If you want to go for a blast one day once these stupid local restrictions are lifted, give me a shout :)

Its "LittleJimny Mark 1" !!!!

Welcome and great to see our old car still going strong. We built that up from 2012

Here you can see her on the day of purchase, we bought it as it was a perfect example. Fully waxoyled underneath. Bought it from a car enthusiast who was one of the founding members of PistonHeads, it was his winter run around when the various high speed Porsches he owned were grounded. He had come over to me for parts and I had commented what a perfect jimny it was, a few weeks later he sold it to me for my son James.

bigjimny.com/index.php/bigjimny-blog/gen...n-bearings-the-video - My kinpins video was on LittleJimny

We sold it to a guy from Devizes way, his daily commute was across Salisbury Plain and he was tired of getting cold and wet on his motorbike.
He sold it to a guy in Manchester who seemed to do some light laning and was planning a holiday trip to Iceland (I presume the country, not going to buy some frozen food!).
After that we lost track of it.

Its great to see it still running. A testament in our minds that small targeted mods really work, go too far and the car has a shorter life (personal opinion!)

Welcome and keep posting pictures!
