This is the hodgepodge of all hodgepodges.  Thanks for following along and I’ll see you in 2018 for another fantastic year!

1988 Toyota Land Cruiser

A lion crouches in the brush, waiting attentively, stalking it’s prey.  A hyena cackles in the distance to laugh at the prey’s impending doom an an elephant grazes in a watering hole not far, thirsting for the last liquid on the Sahara.  These are things you might see if you were cruising the land in this Toyota Land Cruiser.  However, I suspect the only lands this Toyota has roamed have been the pavement filled, human dominated landscapes of LA.

Check out another, slightly older Toyota Land Cruiser we spotted earlier this year.

1984 Toyota Land Cruiser

The infamous Toyota Land Cruiser.  They just don’t make them like this anymore – and by that I mean big, reliable and void of creature comforts. Of course it gets awful gas mileage and rides like a brick with wheels but that’s all the fun!

Information via Wiki:

The J70 was introduced as a soft-top, hard-top, FRP top, utility, cab-chassis, and Troop Carrier (inward facing rear seats).The petrol engine was replaced with a 4.0 L 3F engine. The 70 Light had a four-wheel coil spring solid-axle suspension for better ride quality. This lighter duty version of the Land Cruiser had the 22R 2.4 L gasoline engine, 2L and 2L-T (turbo) 2.4 L diesel engines commonly found in the Toyota Hilux. The 70 Light was sold in some markets as the Bundera or the Landcruiser II, later called 70 Prado. The 70 Prado eventually became popular and evolved into the 90. An automatic transmission (A440F) was introduced making it the first four-wheel drive Japanese vehicle with an automatic transmission.
