New in town...

PostitusPostitas pepo » N Juul 30, 2015 10:13 am

Tere,

I apologize for not writing in Estonia. I just moved here from the Netherlands this month with my yellow 1984 BJ45 HTLD, so my Estonian is still a bit rusty ;-)

My name is Peter Postma, as said, I am original from the Netherlands. I am 43 years old, work as a Linux administrator at Playtech and own my BJ45 since September 2012.

Initially I am working on stabilizing it's condition. (rust wise ;-) ) and I have replaced/repaired some technical stuff (shocks, leaf springs front, fenders, starter, batteries (now Optima yellow top)) I plan to fix up the body (especially the hood and the back is pretty bad) and build a camper interior since I like to do some more traveling with it.

In the Netherlands I am a member of the Land Cruiser club. I took some off road courses though the club and joined some club events including off road weekends and day trips.

As I mentioned I like to travel with my car. Last year I went to the French Alps where I drove a beautiful route through the mountains. I am planning to go to the North cape sometime in the next year or so.

I am looking for other J4 owners/4x4 drivers in Tallinn or surroundings to get to know the country and car shops that can help out with the stuff I cannot do myself.

Hope to see you sometime.

Cheers,

Peter

Yes, Maaks I found it, I signed up and posted something there too, but the forum seems to bee flooded by spam, so no reply yet. (Unlike here :-))

Hello there!

As You will soon find out, this forum is very well moderated and 99% of the folks here are utmost friendly. Not being good in Estonian won't be a problem since some of the guys here are not so good in English either. So everything is even then :mrgreen:
I'm sure you'll learn the few basic and common Estonian key-words of this forum really soon. In example "mu chero ei käivitu", "keegi mõnda rada teab?" or "milline on hea õlifilter?" etc.
I myself drive only on grass with my pocket sized X-trail, make a (questionably)funny comment here or there once in a while and sometimes ask a few stupid questions from the senior members of this forum.

There is luckily one 4x4 service shop who can help you with BJ40 problems and parts - www.offroadservice.ee. The owner is Marek Pedak and he is really skilful with old Toyotas. Also owner of several ones.
