A quick peak at a Toyota Land Cruiser

Some new guys moving into the garage are heavily into old Toyota Land Cruisers.<div>I didn’t know anything about them before they gave me a quick tour. I actually thought Land Cruiser was some kind of Land Rover or Range Rover and my experience with off-road vehicles are limited to a Yamahahahah dirt bike I owned when I was 18 and me driving my 76 VW Golf into a ditch the year after.</div><div>
</div><div>Anyways, these cars are super cool. Not in a performance car type of way but as a cool looking super sturdy retro kind of way. Just look at that beefy classic design.</div><div>I belive this is a 40-series ( , or the Toyota Macho, hoho)</div><div></div><div></div><div>
</div><div>When I mean sturdy I mean massive 9.5” diffs and OEM 4-pot vented brakes, up to 4.2 litres 4-cyl (gasoline) with 130 hp. I mean , 4-pot disc brakes. Thats what you find on super cars from the same area and later JDM icons like the RX7 FD3 and Toyota Supra MK3 etc.</div><div>With 1.9 tonne dry weight those breaks might come in handy. </div><div></div><div>
</div><div>The car in the front of the pictures are semi pimped with big mud tires, suspension mods and misc. modifications and are currently getting new fenders. I think that is a 3.4 l diesel which is preferred by many owners due to lots of torque and less problems running under water :)</div><div></div><div>
