Real 60 Series Land Cruisers were everywhere when I lived in Japan 91-93. But what I've been griping about for years is that Australia still gets the 70 Series, and we don't.


But, I just bought a new car and my daughter just started college, so even if a miracle happened (it won't) I've shot my wad for a while anyway.

The Europeans get all the good stuff. I would love me a diesel HiLux or one of the estate wagons but nope.
If you're willing to accept one more than 25 years old, they're pretty cheap in Latin America and not too difficult to import.

It's a new vehicle made to look like the old one. I was hoping for something more like this, a new copy of an old design.

When they start making exact copies, complying with the new regs., I'll become interested.
Those Japan -made pick ups from about 85-95 were some of the best motor vehicles ever made...problem for Toyota today is...those old designs were good for 200-400 thousand miles!...they just last too long for profit

Yep, kinda like my '97 Silverado. 197,000 mi. and counting.

Sure the engines were good, but the bodies would rot out in less than 10 years up here in New England.

Meh. Now bring back the Gen 1 4runner or the same era pickup (mid-80s, pre-Tacoma) and I’d be perking up. Less weight and more simple.
