What I have for sale is a rebuilt (not frame off) post 9/75 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40. This is a beautiful truck that has had A LOT of work done to it. I just returned from 500 miles of highway, beach and small town driving. This truck cruised at 65-70 mph (appx. 12-14 mpg) and the 4x4 engaged smooth and strong. Its my daily driver and can be your daily driver as well--so the mileage will vary slightly when you get it--you just have to like stick shift! It starts up, drives, and is damn near BONE STOCK. Its clean, very little rust (the small amounts are surface). I bought this from a barn in PA and luckily it was rhino-lined inside and out -- after that, Ive completely rebuilt her. Most of this work was done by Black Wolf Auto in Woodbridge, VA and Trademark Classics in Harrisburg, PA. SOME of the work done (yes, I have the receipts):Engine: 1. Completely rebuild the 2F engine. This is bone stock. Drives perfectly -- starts every time -- has about 3k on the rebuilt engine. 2. Brand new alternator from 84 FJ40 -- internal regulator increases voltage to 60 amps. 3. Brand new high volume radiator -- this engine will not overheat. 4. New Distributor and distributor cap. 5. Rebuilt gearbox and transfer case. 6. Safari Snorkel with safari pre-snorkel, stock (1984) filter installed inside the vehicle. 7. New 38mm Carburetor timed for the vehicle. Works great. 8. Just pulled the crank shaft and redid all of the seals - does not drip oil, does not smoke. Oil pressure is perfect. 9. Dash mounted kill switch for when you leave your car in the city. 10. New spark plugs.11. Petronix electronic 1. Rebuilt brand new tie rods/ends -- no worries there. 2. New Toyota shocks (recommended, but you could easily go to Bilstein especially if you wanted to lift her).3. HFS steering stabilizer that works and looks great. 4. JTO Outfitters disc brakes up front and rebuilt stock drums brakes in rear (keep it original!) -- no troubles slowing down the 2F in DC traffic. Interior: 1. Reupholstered front seats -- I keep them covered. The rear seat is a bench seat that folds down.2. Tuffy box installed -- cup holders are in the rear. (I also have the original that is in great shape).3. BTB Box front locking box installed in place of dash pad.4. New Aussie mat fitted and installed with new transfer case/shifter boot.5. Used (but great shape) rear OEM Toyota hard mats. Externally:1. JTO Outfitter winch ready (looks super stock) front bumper. 2. Specter Off-Road rear swing out with dual jerry can holders (included), Hi-Lift Mount (included), axe and shovel handels and lighted license display. 3. CCOT rear tailgate installed.4. Safari Snorkel with Safari Pre-fileter (The regular pre-filter is included). 5. Besttop softtop with soft doors and also the normal hard doors. 6. New windshield wipers, wiper reservoir, and hardware (wiper fluid is intermittent for some reason).7. Brand new Hella Black Magic fog lights -- with dual internal switches.8. New Toyota/4x4 logos and rear flares installed on passenger and driver side.9. CCOT front license plate holder.10. Front Wheeling Hooks on bumper.11. Front Stock hard doors come with the vehicle, painted the same color. The driver side window has a crack in it (appx. 100 to buy) but the window regulator works just fine. 12. This car was repainted in a sort of Willys/military paint job. It looks good but if I held on to it, Id bring it back to Arctic white (original color). Some chips, some bubbles, but this car gets looks and folks generally lose their mind when you drive it. Thats a list of work done -- but Im sure Im leaving something out. Its a damn strong runner and will continue to be forever -- just depends on how you maintain her. You could put 10k into this and sell it for 50 or drive it for the next 20 years as is -- everything works very well. I have clean title (titled in VA) and passed safety inspection (No need for emissions). Car is tagged and titled in VA.

Subprime financing on the rise in new car sales, leasing too

Fri, 07 Dec 2012 08:44:00 EST

We all remember the financial crisis that began several years back. At its core was a splurge of subprime lending for housing loans. The housing bubble burst, triggering a collapse of the mortgage-backed securities market. Apparently, those types of loans still exist in the automotive industry, and the market share for these types of "nonprime, subprime, and deep subprime," loans has grown 13.6 percent compared to the third quarter a year ago.
According to an Automotive News report, high-risk lending expanded to 24.8 percent of total loans in Q3, up from 21.9 percent for this time last year. As this level increased, average credit scores of borrowers dropped to 755, down from 763 a year ago. In that time, the average financing amount increased $90 per vehicle, to $25,963.
At 818, Volvo maintains the highest per-owner credit score, while Mitsubishi has the lowest, at 694. The highest rate of borrowers was at Toyota, with 14 percent of the market, followed by Ford with 13.1 percent and Chevrolet at 11.1.

New drifting world record set in Toyota GT86

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 14:58:00 EST

We have entered a drifting arms race. Last year, BMW smashed the Guinness World Record for the longest drift by hanging the tail out for 51.3 miles around a wet skid pad in an M5 at the BMW Performance Driving School in South Carolina. That beat the previous milestone of nearly seven miles. Now, Bimmer's record is up in smoke as well and is in the possession of a Toyota.
German driver Harald Müller pummeled the old record to drift for 89.55 miles around a 0.15-mile (235.5-meter) course in Samsun, Turkey, in a Toyota GT86 (or Scion FR-S as it's known in the US). According to the Guinness World Records website, it took him 612 laps and 2 hours, 25 minutes and 18 seconds to manage the achievement. Sit back to watch a few minutes of the German's two and a half hours behind the wheel with the tail out.

Toyota will steer clear of driverless cars

Thu, 04 Sep 2014 10:58:00 EST

Toyota executives say the company's primary focus is on safety. At least for the time being, that means the company won't pursue development of a driverless car.
Speaking at the company's advanced safety seminar in Ypsilanti, MI, Thursday morning, Seigo Kuzumaki, Toyota's deputy chief safety technology officer, said that Toyota envisions a future driving environment that optimizes the best of both humans and computers, not choosing one over the other.
"Toyota's main objective is safety, so it will not be developing a driverless car." - Seigo Kuzumaki
