Back in the 1950's the american army contacted the Toyota Motor Corporation with a request for a 4WD vehicle to be used by the soldiers and military police stationed in Japan. Toyota took the request seriously. The result: the Land Cruiser, a literary bullet proof vehicle.

1983 FJ 40 with factory power steering;its VIN is FJ40361343.

Any one who knows and understands the Toyota FJ40 Land Cruisers, realizes that the 1983 FJ40 is the "Holy Grail" of the FJ40's. This 117.000 Kilometers (73K Miles) original mile has been lightly used over its 30 year life span. It is a very complete example of the famed Toyota Land Cruiser line. As the photos show, this FJ40 has not been altered and is in very nice original condition. It starts easily, runs perfectly and is very strong cruising at 65 - 70 mph with ease. This FJ40 is a dream off-road machine and will satisfy any vintage four-wheel drive enthusiast.

As described this FJ40 is stunning and turns heads wherever it goes. This model/year is the last one imported and rarest with only 300 brought-in in 1983.

I imported this vehicle from Colombia (South America) and had it professionally painted by one of the most recognized classic car's restorers down there.It was painted inside,outside engine compartment and underneath. The vehicle was kept in original condition. I just added A/C bought at Cool Cruisers in Texas.

Doors shut tight and do not squeak or rattle.

The bottom of this truck is completely smooth,painted, and ready to shown with mirrors underneath.The frame is completely painted, floor pans are painted, smooth and waxed. Please email with any questions or for more photos.

2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 14:58:00 EST

Toyota offers many flavors of its refreshed 2015 Camry, but those who choose to lower their operating cost-per-mile, squeeze 500-plus miles out of each tank of fuel or run a very efficient and reliable sedan in their taxi fleets will only be interested in one: the Camry Hybrid.
The exterior of the 2015 Camry Hybrid is nearly indistinguishable from its gasoline-only counterparts, with the same all-new sheetmetal and bumpers. The Hybrid is offered in LE, SE and XLE trims, meaning customers are offered base, sport or luxury configurations, respectively.
While Toyota expended quite a bit of effort resculpting and improving the 2015 Camry Hybrid, one area it didn't touch was the powertrain - it is virtually identical to last year's model (just like the gas version). Under the hood is a 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle four-cylinder gasoline engine (156 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque) and an electric tractive motor (141 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque). Combined, and running through Toyota's unique Hybrid Synergy Drive electronic continuously variable transmission, the two produce 200 horsepower (Toyota does not list a combined torque figure, and we've asked for clarification). A 1.6 kilowatt-hour nickel-metal-hydride battery, packaged behind the rear seats, provides energy storage.

J.D. Power study sees new car dependability problems increase for first time since 1998

Wed, 12 Feb 2014 13:31:00 EST

For the first time since 1998, J.D. Power and Associates says its data shows that the average number of problems per 100 cars has increased. The finding is the result of the firm's much-touted annual Vehicle Dependability Study, which charts incidents of problems in new vehicle purchases over three years from 41,000 respondents.
Looking at first-owner cars from the 2011 model year, the study found an average of 133 problems per 100 cars (PP100, for short), up 6 percent from 126 PP100 in last year's study, which covered 2010 model-year vehicles. Disturbingly, the bulk of the increase is being attributed to engine and transmission problems, with a 6 PP100 boost.
Interestingly, JDP notes that "the decline in quality is particularly acute for vehicles with four-cylinder engines, where problem levels increase by nearly 10 PP100." Its findings also noticed that large diesel engines also tended to be more problematic than most five- and six-cylinder engines.

EVO "2012 Car of the Year: The Track Battles" is a sports car salmagundi

Sun, 25 Nov 2012 17:30:00 EST

EVO has come out with another gotta-watch-it video, throwing its 2012 Car of the Year contestants around the UK's 1.5-mile Blyton Park track. It's actually a 15-minute teaser for the full-length DVD detailing the magazine's Car of the Year selection, but the tease is worth every penny free second.
Tiff Needell and sports car racer Richard Meaden handle the wheel duties, the two driving five pairs of sports cars: Lotus Exige S vs. Porsche Boxster S, Morgan Three-Wheeler vs. Toyota GT86, BMW M135i vs. Porsche 911, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series vs. Alpina B3 GT3, the marquee event pits the McLaren MP4-12C vs. the Pagani Huayra. After a head-to-head lap with commentary during drifts, Meaden takes each car out to set a representative lap time.
You'll find the verdicts, lots of tire smoke, and lines like "Anything you can do sideways I can do sideways" in the video below.
