    Scotty my local Toyota garage have one of these traded in by the only owner who bought it new back in 1979 and it was still in original mint condition when he traded it in in 2019, they have it as a display item now, somehow I doubt they gave him anywhere near 80k for it.

    I had a 1972 FJ40 Land Cruiser, My engine was just like a 235 chevy stright 6 only, heavy duty. I was having trouble with my distributor, so i swapped it out for a chev.235 6 Distributor, the whole assembly, right down to the cap & rotor. Dropped right in. Ran great. Way cheaper than factory part and easier to find parts for. Bullet/Proof just like the WW11 Jeep, But stronger.

    I wish they had the FJ70 imported here. I really want a short wheelbase, truly capable 4x4 with a full metal roof. The 4Runner is kind of too long for the roads and trails here and a Wrangler is too tiny inside for me, my eye line is above the top of the windshield and it sucks driving them. I'm curious if/what a new FJ Cruiser is like, the old one was a bit larger than I'd like, hoping any new one isn't any bigger, if not smaller to fit in tight spots.

    Here in Colombia these cars are very popular for farmers, miners, coffee growers and even the army. In some places where is difficult to have access to, because of the very tilt roads, these cars are used as a public transportation. I know even in Brazil and Venezuela are very popular too. Great cars for dififcult roads.

    Sorry Scotty, but you're exaggerating on this one. Sure there are some lemons out there but the cost of maintaining my 2002 Boxster isn't nearly as fatal as you describe. Paid less than $14,000 for it at 45K miles three years ago and have only had to replace brake light switch, light bulbs, oil, tires and brakes. If someone doesn't like sports cars they would never like the ride but they almost always like the look.

    I was driving home long time ago, and passed the Toyota dealership. Saw a green and black Toyota Landcruiser like this one in the parking lot. Went over to drool at it and the keys were in it - and the dealership was closed! Nobody around. It was parked out by the road, too. Man oh man I wanted so bad to drive that thing. For a whole year I dreamed about driving it up into the mountains and hiding it in the woods just so I could go drive it on the weekends. But I knew if I did, I wouldn't get half-way down the street before I'd get caught.
