This handsome Land Cruiser has had the best of care throughout its lifetime, my mechanic and owner of the Tire Factory store in Gold Beach has been all over it, has driven it home a couple of times and says that it is really a solid vehicle and that he enjoys driving it.  Really the only thing that doesn't work is the fuel gage and with a 36 gallon tank I just keep track of it with the trip-ometer, reseting it at fill ups.  The original owner was a wild life photographer and had it installed where the spare normally goes, thats why the spare tire is up on the rack. Every thing else works, power door locks, rear glass defroster, A/C (brrrrrr), original radio with new retractable antenna, etc. 

Okay now to the good stuff, 10,000 miles ago the engine was rebuilt by a Toyota Engine shop (I have receipts) and shortly after that the tranny needed it too.  This Land Cruiser runs fantastic, it runs as good as it looks, maybe better!  Interior is very nice also, for a 26 year old vehicle, it is in remarkable condition inside and out (see photos).

Some other items of note recently are:  New Radiator & tranny cooler, water pump, Starter & Alternator, distributor cap, rotor, plugs & wires, New tires & wheels, steering dampener, New Battery, O2 Sensor, A/C charged, Valve Adjustment, new Brake Calipers, tires rotated, brakes are good.

The new Land Cruiser owner will NOT be disappointed.

Despite slow sales, no new Scion models in near-term pipeline [w/poll]

Mon, 09 Sep 2013 13:00:00 EST

According to a top Toyota executive, the Japanese automaker will not be introducing any fresh Scion models in the near future, Reuters reports. As of August, Scion sales for this year were down 1.6 percent from 2012 and accounted for only 0.3 percent of Toyota's overall US sales. And last month, Toyota Motor Sales USA Senior Vice President Bob Carter informed the 1,000 dealers who carry Scion that they can drop the brand without penalty.
However, never fear - Carter has assured that, while nothing new is coming for at least six months, the company is still very committed to the quirky Scion brand. Toyota launched Scion, which targets the youth market, in 2003, and sales peaked in 2006. The brand currently has five models, with the 2013 best-sellers being the FR-S sports coupe followed by the tC sedan and xB hatchback.
What do you think about Toyota's decision to hold off on introducing new or refreshed Scion models? Are they heading in the right direction, or does this spell doom for the funky Gen Y brand?

GM repairing 40,500 Pontiac Vibes as part of Toyota airbag recall

Wed, 09 Apr 2014 15:30:00 EST

General Motors has confirmed to Autoblog that the Pontiac Vibe is included in Toyota's just-announced recall action. The Vibe and the Toyota Matrix share a large number of parts, including the affected cable to the airbag.
"About 40,500 Pontiac Vibes from the 2009-2010 model years are included in the Toyota recall. Toyota designed and engineered the Vibe for Pontiac. GM will service customers with these vehicles when Toyota makes the parts available," said GM recall spokesperson Alan Adler to Autoblog in an email.
The recall covers 1.3 million Toyota units in the US, including 2009-2010 Corolla, Matrix and Tacoma, the 2008-2010 Highlander, the 2006-2008 Rav4 and 2006-2010 Yaris, plus the addition of the 2009-2010 Vibe. The models all have their airbag module attached via a spiral electrical cable. The connections on this cable can be damaged when turning the steering wheel. Once broken, the airbag deactivates and the airbag warning light comes on. Toyota has an improved part, but it's still making preparations to begin repairs. It will begin notifying owners soon.

Toyota GT86 engineers explored shooting brake and sedan variants, are they still in the cards?

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 19:58:00 EST

According to the Toyota UK blog, engineers for the automaker were so excited developing the GT86 coupe that they investigated producing a whole family of models based on the rear-wheel drive sports car. And at least one engineer - product chief Tetsuya Tada - still hopes it can happen, even if not everyone at Toyota is onboard. Tada: "Actually we tried to do this secretly but the executives found us out. They said: 'What are you doing? Will you please focus on the coupe.'"
Those mooted variants included both a four-door sedan and a shooting brake. Why? Aside from the pure excellence of a lightweight, brilliantly handling hatchback, Toyota was keenly aware of the fact that it may need to spread the cost of development out across several models. Tada says that's part of the reason why it was so easy to create the convertible. The company knew from the outset that a softtop version was in the cards, and built the machine's structure to accommodate having the roof sliced off.
Tada also made mention of the already-announced collaboration between Toyota and BMW. The engineer said that the GT86 was particularly helpful because it demonstrated just how successful a product conceived and designed by two different companies can be. While he didn't say exactly what Toyota and BMW are up to, it's clear the two are looking into a number of possibilities. It's an interesting read with a lot of
