1968 Toyota Land Cruiser Fj40 4wd California "blue Plate" Nice! Restomod 4x4 on 2040-cars
Flowood, Mississippi, United States
1968 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 California "Blue Plate". Per the previous owner this vehicle has been rebuilt from the frame up. This was done with a nod to originality as well as a nod to modernization. Installed was a 2008 Chevrolet 5.3 Liter Fuel Injected Vortec Engine and a Chevrolet Bad Boy 4L60E Transmission with a reported 8000 miles on both at time of install.
I have a complete three page description and also a very comprehensive 3" binder with all receipts, calculations, paperwork, manuals and vintage California Blue Plates.
Odometer does not work - reported 13,000 +/- miles ( at time of restoration motor and transmission were reported to have 8000 +/- miles and it is estimated that about 5000 +/- mile have been put on the vehicle since restoration)
Please email me for a link to many more additional photos as well as the 3 page breakdown.
We are a car dealer who is listing this vehicle for the private owner. This FJ40 can be seen at 2315 Lakeland Drive, Flowood, MS 39232 - Next door to Primos Restaurant. Please call 601-397-6970 for any additional information (phone is land line no text)

Was there a better time for Japanese performance than the 1980s and 1990s? It seems like looking back, Japan was on a roll, producing cars that were affordable, economical, reliable, fast and lightweight. And while all the attention is - thanks to a certain film series - focused on cars like Toyota Supra and Mazda RX-7, there is a lesser-known model that's establishing its own enduring legacy without the help of Paul Walker and Vin Diesel.

The MR2, affectionately known as the "Mister Two" to fanboys, first arrived in 1984 as a lightweight, mid-engined sports car that proceeded to eat the lunch of the Pontiac Fiero in terms of performance. That car was replaced in 1989 with the more familiar, rounded-out MR2, which is the subject of this latest video from the team at Petrolicious.
The video takes a look at a group of MR2 drivers, and attempts to explain what it is about the car that is destined to make it a future classic. Scroll down to see Petrolicious examine the MR2 Connection.

Each year, J.D. Power and Associates surveys original owners of three-year-old vehicles to find out what kinds of problems they have had experienced over the last 12 months, and then it uses this data to create its annual Vehicle Dependability Study. This means that the models in the 2013 study are 2010 model year vehicles, and J.D. Power rates each make as well as the top individual models based on how many problems were experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100).
Debunking the idea that carryover models are more dependable than new or updated models, the 2013 study found that the average carryover model experienced 133 PP100, while all-new or redesigned vehicles for the 2010 model year had 116 PP100; vehicles that received minor changes fared the best with just 111 PP100. The overall average for all makes was 126 PP100, which is the lowest figure since the findings were first issued in 1989.
Despite having the tendency to offer decidedly bland production cars, Toyota occasionally surprises us with interesting concept cars. Such is the case with the C-HR concept making its debut at the Paris Motor Show this week. It's a concept showing forward-thinking design that hints at "a type of crossover vehicle Toyota would like to bring to market," according to the automaker's release, and it rides on an all-new platform and uses a hybrid powertrain.
About that powertrain: Toyota isn't revealing anything, just saying that it will - brace yourselves - "deliver significantly improved fuel efficiency" (over what, exactly?) The car also uses a brand-new architecture, though it hasn't really revealed any major details about that aspect, either.
It's a high-riding, muscular thing, with a rakish hatchback shape. Should it reach production, Toyota says it would take the shape of a C-segment crossover. It'd be cool to see something like this hit the road someday, but for now, we won't hold our breath.
