Hey, everybody! Today I want to tell you about this amazing Toyota Minis web-site (http://www.toyotaminis.com/). It’s been around for 11 years, and is considered to be one of the (if not THE) best online sources for owners of oldschool Toyota mini trucks – sometimes known as the “Hilux” models. This is a huge resource for all those folks who love customizing, upgrading and restoring their favorite mini steel horses. Me personally, I’ve never heard about this site before (strange, right?) and learned about it just recently. I was very impressed with what these people have been doing for so many years!
The Best Source Out There
Toyota Minis is an enormous Klondike of super valuable information that is not that easy to find in the Internet. Yes, there are some other sources out there, but this one is like “The Best” collection. The community is very friendly, helpful and caring, which, in my opinion, is the most important thing for a site like this. They’ve got quite a pile of discussions over there, and, again, the info is very useful and on-point – no BS, in other words.
Furthermore, Toyota Minis is a great way to meet Toyota enthusiasts from all over the globe and start sharing crazy stories! And that’s what’s amazing about a solid web-site’s forum: you get to learn something valuable, and have a nice conversation with a person miles away from you all at the same time. If you’ve got a Mini Toyota Land Cruiser, a Toyota Mini Van, or a Toyota Mini Truck, than this web-site is THE place for you to hang out at!
11 Years In The Game
The Toyota mini truck world is not very popular, but it has a very loyal fan-base who regularly visits Toyota Minis.com and talks about all things related. As mentioned before, the web-site just entered its 11th year of service, and if you, by any chance, are one of the first ones to join the movement – one of the Originals, so to speak – then please, do tell us about yourself in the comments section below. By the way, for the last 10 years they’ve been using this VBulletin software for the forum, and it’s been serving flawlessly. But, today its’ a bit old and rusty, and is showing some symptoms of its age. So, the administration is looking for a deserving successor.
The New Toyota Minis Forum
So, what will the regular folks get from this upgrade? Well, a lot! First of all, this new forum software is so much more mobile-friendly than the previous one, so, if you like checking the latest news on Toyota Minis, but think that it’s not very user-friendly, then I’ve got good news for you – with the new software, the web-site will work (and look) great on your mobile phones, smart phones, and tablets. In addition, the new forum has much better integration with social media – I’m talking about Twitter, Facebook and others – so now you can easily share your thoughts/comments/posts with the world.
Do You “Like” Me? Please Do!
They’ve got quite a big list of improvements, one of the most important ones being, of course, the ability to “like” posts. I know that this feature has been around for ages, but it’s new to Toyota Minis, and – I’m sure of it – this will bring a lot of “fresh blood” to the forum. With a “like” you can show your appreciation, give “kudos” to another Toyota Minus user who has answered your question in details, or just anybody whose post you find funny and/or on point. Oh, and yeah – the new forum will be MUCH faster than the old one! That’s probably another big happy thing that the community of Toyota Minis will enjoy.
The New Looks of Toyota Minis
That’s not all! As we speak, the administration (or what do you call the owners of such a web-site?) is working hard on developing the look and vibe of the redesigned site and is constantly testing all the various tools and functions to make sure that everything works as it should and to ensure a very smooth transition from oldschool to newschool. The team was looking to start the new web-site in May-June, but they haven’t announced the good news yet, so, I’m guessing some additional work was required. Well, better late, than never, right? Keep in mind, though, that the web-site will go offline for a couple of hours whenever they decide to launch the new version. So, if you’re having trouble accessing your favorite threads, who knows, maybe that upgrade is finally happening?
What’s It All About?
So, the Toyota Minis web-site is dedicated to Toyota Stout, Hilux and Pick-up owners from all around the world. It’s a very comprehensive resource, with a live Chat, a Forum, a Store (to get TM gear), as well as a Gallery, where you can share pics of your pride and joy-of-a-truck, a Tech menu with helpful and on-point recommendations, and the News menu, where you can lean about the web-site’s news and overall indsutry news. Make sure to check out all of the aforementioned menus – you can spend days, weeks even, checking out the impressive collection of truck photos from all over the globe.
Got a mini Toyota car pic to share? Don’t be shy! The Gallery is a very fun place; you can find tons of amazing customized mini Hilux models with detailed descriptions and photos. The Tech menu is where it gets serious – folks talk about techy stuff, like Drivetrain, Engine, Suspension, Chassis (if you’re wondering about, say, Toyota mini truck axles, that’s where you need to go), Exterior, Interior, Electronics, Tires-Wheels, and, of course, Repair and Maintenance.
Toyota Minis Is The Best In The Field
If you spend some time and really get into the discussions people are having over there, you’ll get a lot of valuable information that you would otherwise never get the chance to learn about. Got a question about a Toyota mini VCI driver? These folks will know the answer, believe me! That’s what’s great about old-timers like Toyota Minis – a lot of really knowledgeable and smart folks hang out at the forums, sharing decades of experience, tries, fails, and triumphs.
Alright, that’s my review of the Toyota Minis web-site. It’s an amazing resource for all the Mini Toyota fans out there, so, if you’re one of them, don’t hesitate to join in – you’ll love it, I guarantee that! And don’t forget to share you experience with us right here, in the comments – who knows, maybe you’ll even “recruit” some of my readers for the Toyota Minis community?
