A little while ago, a beautiful 1991 imported Land Cruiser, in great shape, came available.
Saturday, we drove 3.5 hours south to pick it up. :)
It rumbles when it drives, like an old 1960s muscle car.
It runs on diesel, which is cheaper than gasoline by about 10c/L, on average.
The lower body panels are covered in the same stuff as the inside of my truck bed liner: rust-free and chip-resistant.
It's got a heavy duty roof rack, and extra lights that are so bright that you can see *anything* on the road in front of you.
It has .... *cruise control*.
The center console, between the driver's and passenger's seats, has a built in cooler. You can put a couple of cans of Coke and a bottle or two of water in there, hit the 'cool' button, and have chilled beverages, while you drive!
How neat is that?
