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.

Toyota pimps out Esquire van for Japanese businessmen [w/video]

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 16:57:00 EST

A few months back we reported on a dealership owner in Japan who was petitioning Toyota to make a luxury van. The problem, he reasoned, was that he couldn't take as many friends, colleagues and clients around with him in his Lexus LS, and his Toyota Alphard van wasn't luxurious enough. Well, it seems like he wasn't alone, and Toyota has listened.
The Japanese auto giant has just revealed the Esquire, a new luxury van designed with just such customers in mind. It's significantly smaller than the Sienna we get in America, smaller than the aforementioned Alphard and about the same size as (this writer's favorite) the JDM Noah van (on which we gather it's based). But what sets the Esquire apart is its upscale appearance.
The boxy van is distinguished by its dominant T-shaped chrome grille with a unique emblem that encompasses a shield, sword, "the collar of a gentleman's suit" and the letters Esq. The flank is characterized by a strong beltline with chrome lower window frame and an expansive greenhouse with tinted rear glass. Inside the flexible cabin you'll find accommodation for seven or eight passengers (depending on specification), synthetic leather upholstery and wood and metallic trim. There are even wheelchair-enabled models on offer as well.

Autocar pits McLaren MP4-12C against turbo Toyota GT86

Thu, 29 Aug 2013 19:58:00 EST

The Toyota GT86, in all of its forms, is one of the best-handling cars money can buy, a trait that can put a smile on the faces of all but the most jaded car enthusiasts. But if good handling isn't what they're looking for, then what is? Our first guess would have to be more power, something the 200-horsepower Toyota would benefit from. Autocar tries out that theory by driving two turbocharged GT86s on track, then pitting the more powerful one against the 616-hp McLaren MP4-12C in a track battle.
The first GT86 turbo Autocar's Steve Sutcliffe drives makes around 255 rear-wheel horsepower and a bucket-load more torque than the stock car. That's plenty of power to either have a lot of fun or get into a lot of trouble. But the GT86 that Sutcliffe tails in the McLaren is race-prepped, stripped to the bone and wears slicks to harness a heavy-hitting 335 hp at the wheel. Weighing in at under 2,500 pounds, the Toyota can't overcome the MP4-12C's power-to-weight ratio of 5.3 pounds per horsepower, but it comes pretty close.
Enjoy a lot of chasing and drifting fun in the video below!

Unifor may establish local union for Toyota's Canadian plants

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 13:59:00 EST

Union tactics apparently translate across borders, as Canada's Unifor may take inspiration from the United Auto Workers' recent move at the Volkswagen factory in Chattanooga, TN, and establish a local for the Toyota factories in Cambridge and Woodstock.
Unifor last attempted to organize the workers at the two factories, which are responsible for production of the Toyota Corolla (above), RAV4 and Lexus RX back in April, but that vote was eventually delayed. According to that report, 3,000 of the two plants' 7,500 employees signed union cards, but that apparently wasn't enough for Unifor to force a vote.
Because of this, the union is looking at the local approach, like what the UAW is attempting with VW.
