Drive Type: 3 spd
Silverthorne, Colorado, United States
What we have here is a 1969 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ55 with a FREE and CLEAR Colorado title. I'm sure some of you saw this listed on ebay last year . . . It starts right up and drives down the road. It has a brand new Aisin master cylinder installed. I have the original panels , and wheels that will go with the winning bidder. It is 43 years old so there is always something that can be done. 3 spd on the tree , that still shifts tight. I live at 9000 feet and it starts right up and drives down the road. The previous owner installed the air bags, and it rides stellar . I have had a magnet all over this truck, NO BONDO ! The under carriage of this truck is very solid-welded 2x6 trailer hitch tubing tied into the frame for a beefy set up. I was planning on painting it, and making it a daily driver, but my job has other plans for me. The headliner/interior could use some work. The seats are in real good shape. These fj55 are very very scarce ! Bid to win! Good luck and thank you for looking ! I accept pay pal, certified check, money wire, etc... NO RESERVE. I will help ship in anyway I can, but shipping is on you. Thanks again.

Giving Vanilla A Good Name
"Vanilla." Taken in modern context, that's not a compliment, but it should be. Vanilla actually has exotic origins, and as spices go, only saffron is more costly. Despite the realities, calling something "vanilla" is not whistling in admiration. The Toyota Camry has been called "vanilla" countless times since its debut, but both the car and the bean have something up their sleeves.
Scoff all you want, but vanilla is the most popular ice cream flavor, and there is no mainstream sedan that outsells the Camry. Apparently, vanilla has an underlying tinge of filthy lucre. We didn't feel rich, exactly, wheeling around in the Camry Hybrid, but we came away impressed, nonetheless.
Residual values for last year's minivans are higher than they were in 2000.
Much like the station wagon was the shuttle of Baby Boomer generation, the minivan has been the primary means of transport for Generations X and Y. Just as the boomers abandoned the Country Squire, though, those kids that were toted around in Grand Caravans and Windstars are adults, and they certainly don't want to be seen in the cars their parents drove.
