This car runs great. There is some rust on the ledge of the roof as moisture accumulates there over the years. No rust anywhere else."

This 1971 FJ55 Landcruiser is a rare and hard to find vintage SUV.  It is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition.  It has a vacuum assisted 4-wheel drive and air conditioning, both fully operational. 


Lovely referred to as the "Iron Pig" by its fan base over the years for its rough looks and tough composition, this vintage SUV performs incredibly well off road and crossing shallow rivers.  

There is rust on the ledge around the roof top, which is very common on this car as moisture accumulates there without draining. The odometer is not working so the mileage listed is estimated.  This is an original California car kept in Huntington Beach, Laguna Beach and Oceanside, CA most of its life.

I have the original owner's manual and keys. Don't miss the opportunity to own this collector piece.  Email me with any questions or if you need more information.

Popular Science magazine's Best Of What's New 2012 all ate up with cars

Tue, 20 Nov 2012 17:44:00 EST

Popular Science has named the winners in its Best of What's New awards, the victors coming in the categories of aerospace, automotive, engineering, entertainment, gadgets, green, hardware, health, home, recreation, security and software. The automotive category did not go wanting for lauded advancements:
Tesla Model S: the Grand Award winner for being "the standard by which all future electric vehicles will be measured."
BMW 328i: it's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gets called out for being more powerful and frugal than the six-cylinder it replaces.

Toyota recalling FJ Cruiser due to excessively bright headlights

Sun, 05 May 2013 11:12:00 EST

Now, hold on. This recall isn't quite as serious as it sounds. Yes, Toyota is recalling 11,489 FJ Cruiser models from the 2007 to 2013 model years, and yes, it's because the vehicles, as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states, "fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, 'Lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment.'" But read the fine print and you'll see the catch: This recall is only for vehicles fitted with the automaker's auxiliary lighting kit that can be mounted to the front bumper.
Basically, the auxiliary lamp assemblies use 55-watt bulbs, and when these are turned on in conjunction with the upper beam headlamps, it's a pretty blinding sight. NHTSA states that excessively bright lights can blind other drivers, increasing the risk for a crash.
To remedy the situation, Toyota will replace the 55-watt bulbs with cooler 35-watt units. The recall is expected to begin later this month. Scroll down for the full details in the NHTSA report.

BMW-Toyota joint sports car project is on like Donkey Kong

Mon, 30 Dec 2013 17:30:00 EST

It's official - there will be a jointly developed sports car from BMW and Toyota. While the two auto giants signed a Memorandum of Understanding that pledged to pursue "joint development of architecture and components for a future sports vehicle" back in June of 2012, in the interim, it has remained unclear how those plans had been progressing. BMW has finally officially confirmed that the German and Japanese manufacturers will be codeveloping a pair of sports cars in addition to pursuing other disciplines including fuel cell systems and lightweight technologies.
"We have agreed on a joint architecture for a sports car. What is important is that there will be two different vehicles that are authentic to the two brands," BMW Development Chief Herbert Diess told Germany's Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Reuters is reporting. This is a very, very big step for both brands, but now the speculation can officially begin as to what the products of this agreement will look like.
There's ample reason to believe that the BMW-Toyota tie up will result in a Supra successor based on comments made by the chief engineer of the GT86/FR-S program, Tatsuya Tada, back in August. Follow that with a rumor from earlier this month that Toyota could debut a Supra concept car at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show later this month, and we could be seeing the fruits of this partnership sooner rather than later.
