I've had a '79 truck with factory 4x4 and a factory am/fm/cb bought new. '70 FJ55 that ended up with a small block and pto winch. 2000 Montero. '08 FJC. '13 Subaru Crosstrek. I have been very very lucky with all of them in mileage and dependability.

Just traded this 88 for my 4th Jeep last Saturday, I do miss her but I wasn't using her much, everything worked though!
I really don't think my FJ will ever get sold though, it's nice to finally have something I can say that about..

That is one hell of a good looking truck

2002 4Runner sport edition. Sold at 100k miles in late 2013 to get a 2014 FJ before production ended. The 2020 version of me wonders why I didn’t keep them both! Sold in ten minutes after posting on Craigs. Whoops.

Bought my first 4WD in 1981 a Holden Jackaroo (in Australia) which was a rebadged Isuzu Bighorn. It was underpowered but still had some great trips with her. Tried a Land Rover Discovery Series 2, but found it very thirsty on fuel.
My 2011 FJ has been fantastic, having covered much of the breadth of Australia without missing a beat.

I have only bought Toyota since 1981 and in that time I had a second year 4-runner a1985 and 1988 4-runner, then I had two back to back Tacoma’s the last of which I drove 10 yrs and traded for my current 2008 FJ. In and amongst the 4x4 we had every thing else. I also currently have a 2011 Rav4 fhe V6. That’s the last year they produced the v6, it’s the wife’s car, I don’t like front wheel drive, I’m old school. I like to drive a car not have it drive me. Out of all the 4x4 I have had, including two Chevy’s, the FJ is the best I have ever owned, by far! The only things I have added is K&N intake and dual cat back! I want to put some sort of performance tune or chip in it!

I owned quite an odd assortment of vehicles before I drank the Toyota Kool-Aid and got hooked. I know most of this is slightly off topic so bare with me. Got my first car before I had a license. 1964 MGB $320. I learned a lot about working on cars with that MG. Second car 1971 SAAB Sonett III with V4 Ford power. I still love these V4 powered Saabs. Third vehicle was a 1979 Toyota Hilux 2WD long bed with aluminum topper. Purchased used from my best friends dad for $1100 90,000 miles. It was tough as nails. Sold it with 320,000 for $1600. Yep,more than I paid for it after all those miles. 4th vehicle was 1985 Toyota Hilux 4WD xtra Cab purchased used $3200 133,000 miles. I drove this one to about 320,000 too. 5th vehicle was 1993 Range Rover 4.2 LWB purchased used in 1997 for $15,000 with 60,000 miles. I LOVED this vehicle and drove s%!t out of it for about 10 years with no problems. Sold it. Wish I had it back. I'm a commercial photographer and I could securely haul a ton of gear in that old Rangie. Oct 25th 2007, my dad died and I inherited his 1992 Toyota Hilux xtraCab 4WD 22RE 5 spd. I still have it as well as my 2008 Sun Fusion FJ Cruiser 6MT. Only new vehicle we've ever owned besides a 2005 Sienna my wife drives. I'm hooked on Toyota vehicles.

Here is the current lineup in my drive way. This includes my kid's cars. Looks like a Toyota used car lot.

2008 FJ Cruiser
2007 Camry Hybrid
2005 Sienna XLE Van
2000 Camry CE
1992 4wd xtracab Hilux


I also like German/Porsche air cooled cars.
I have a 1969 911E Coupe and 1976 911S Coupe project cars.
