1997 Toyota Land Cruiser Full Time 4WD
Clean Title, Pink In Hand. This is your opportunity to have a nicer Land Cruiser than your friends.
Rare 40th Anniversary Edition
*Sorry no diff locks on this one*

Here's your chance to own an Iconic truck. This is the last year of this body style and they are very difficult to find in this good of condition. The body and interior are overall in very good condition, just a few minor dings/scratches here and there, see pics. Previous owner had this thing for 14 years and all owners have kept it in the garage since new, notice there's no paint fade like you usually see with these model Land Cruisers. To my knowledge there has only been three total owners of this vehicle.

This truck also has a fully boxed frame making it a very solid and safe vehicle. These things are built like tanks. Bullet proof engine and drive terrain, 1 ton axels front and rear (plenty strong enough to handle 35" tires. Famous straight six motor - this is one of the most reliable engines Toyota has EVER built. 300K+ miles is common place on these things, just ask any Land Cruiser enthusiast.

This truck even has the orignal tools, jack, socket set, etc. These are all very rare to find still with the truck, they usually end up in someones garage and never follow the truck.

Cruiser has a lot of new items:
- New BFG All Terrain Tires (top rated for snow) - $1200
- New Alternator
- New air filter hose
- Just had the oil changed, new oil filter, etc. I will smog for buyer
- New battery
- In total I've probably put in over $2000 into the truck in the last year and a half
Fully Loaded! Features Include:<br>
- Power everything: steering, windows, seats, door locks
- Sun roof
- Cruiser control
- Tilt wheel
- Tinted windows
- Hitch set up
- Dual  power seats
- A/C & heater work great
- Alloy wheels, with all of the center caps (those usually tend to go missing)
- Leather Interior, great condition for its age.
- Two tone leather that only came with the 40th Anniversary Edition
- Three row seating, 7 passenger
- Removable third row for extra storage
- Roof rack (stock)
- CD Changer & AM/FM Radio (stock)
- Automatic transmission
- Full Sized Spare
- Straight axle front end
- Does come with the original floor mats, they're just not in the pics.

There's only a few minor problems:
- Slight oil leak/consumption. I only have to add a quart a couple of times between oil changes, every 1500 miles or so.
- Power antenna button doesn't work. My mechanic told me it should be an easy fix, but it's not that big of a deal to me. All other power itmes work!
- Sometimes has a squeek in the steering collumn when turning (usually when its cold), I looked it up on forums, just needs to have some grease put on underneath the steering wheel somewhere.
- Driver side visor hangs a little low, doesn't bother me, but if your over 6' tall it might.
- Sometimes the rear passenger side door light comes on as if the door is open even thought it is closed
- That's about all I can think of, really is in great running/mechanical condition.

This truck will make a great daily driver, family car, weekend warrior, camping truck, ski/snow board rig, fishing & hunting truck, build your rock crawler, etc. Your wish is it's command! You will love this Land Cruiser. SOLID SOLID TRUCK. Message with any questions. Thanks for looking.

Toyota GT86 CS-R3 rally car presages for-sale customer racecar

Thu, 31 Jul 2014

Rallying may enjoy a very strong association with all-wheel drive, but it wasn't so long ago that the World Rally Championship was populated by cars that slipped and slid across gravel and tarmac using rear-wheel drive. One of those was the Toyota Celica. While the little Celica eventually joined the gravel-spewing masses with an all-wheel-drive rally car, Toyota is returning to its rear-drive rally roots with a modified version of the critically acclaimed GT86.
Called the CS-R3, the new model boasts all the necessary changes to turn the diminutive twin of the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ into a car capable of tackling the tough, twisting paths that are so routinely conquered by the world's rally cars. That means, of course, the CS-R3 has gotten a power bump.
Expected output sits between 240 and 250 horsepower, thanks to a new racing exhaust and manifold, as well as other changes. The ECU has been replaced with an item a bit more suited to racing, while the compression ratio has also been adjusted to boost the output.

Toyota recalling 11,200 Scion iQ models over faulty passenger sensors

Wed, 07 Nov 2012

Toyota has announced a voluntary recall of 11,200 Scion iQ models from the 2012 and 2013 model years. According to the manufacturer, the problem with these pint-sized hatchbacks concerns the front passenger Occupant Classification System (OCS) weight sensor cables.
The OCS sensors in the front passenger seat control the operation of things like the airbags and seatbelt pre-tensioner. In these affected models, the cables for these sensors located in the seat track can become damaged as the passenger seat slides forward and backward. And if the cables are damaged, the airbags and seatbelt pre-tensioner may not function properly.
No injuries or crashes have been reported in conjunction with this issue.

LA Design Challenge invokes biology for 2025 concepts [w/poll]

Wed, 13 Nov 2013

Participants in the annual LA Design Challenge always manage to come up with edgy, wacky designs for future vehicles, but with a theme of "Biomimicry and Mobility: 2025" this year's crop of cars might be the quirkiest we've ever seen. As usual, automotive designers from around the world participated in this year's competition, and all the designs will all be unveiled next week during the LA Auto Show with a winner being announced on November 21.
Chinese automakers made a strong showing with Qoros, SAIC Motor, JAC Motors (the company responsible for the Ford F-150 clone) and Changfeng all bringing interesting takes on the biology, human intelligence and sustainability theme. One of the more innovative ideas among these automakers is the Qoros Silk Road System allows autonomous vehicles to drive in packs similar to how ants travel. Speaking of ants, the SAIC Motor Mobiliant (shown above) gets its design from the shape of an ant's body, and, like the insect, it can climb building acting as a personal elevator as well. The JAC Motors design also merges vehicle and building design, while the Changfeng LaBrea inspired by the design of muscle fibers.
Other entrants include Subaru and US-based design teams for BMW, Toyota and Mazda. BMW's duo of concepts mimic plant and animal life. The LA Subways concept acts as a submersible, single-person vehicle to take advantage of the LA river, with a shape similar to an Ocean Sunfish. The Sustainable Efficient Exploratory Device (SEED) imitates the shape of a seed pod, and uses propulsion methods inspired by a shark, dragonfly and a water bug. Mazda's Auto Adapt might be the most car-like concept of the bunch, while the Subaru Suba-Roo and the Calty-designed, Toyota e-grus are the most mind-blowingly awesome.
