What ride did you give up for your FJ?

Just curious what vehicle you gave up to acquire your FJ? Me, nothing just an addition but I gave up my G35 6MT coupe for my E53 which is my favorite out of all my rides.:bigthumb:
Porsche Macan turbo. Probably the finest road car I have ever driven, but not something that will go where I want to go.

We 'gave up' the opportunity to have a different truck. We like Tacos and older Land Cruisers, and can't get one unless we give up the FJ. Totally a first-world problem. Not happening anytime soon, but my wife, who is the primary FJ owner, occasionally talks about making a change in the future.

I was a partner in a new startup company, but had been working as a consultant and doing a 50 mile drive to and from work. After we had the startup running, the other owners all ganged up on me for still driving my 1984 Honda Accord with 420k miles on it. They agreed to give me a car allowance of $700/mn if I would buy a new car, as my "old beater" was a ride they considered unprofessional.

I looked at a lot of rides in Jan 2007, but drove home in HelTeef - and she is still going strong with 337k miles on her...

I had a 2000 ZR2 Blazer which I was the sole owner for a 2012 TTSE. The Blazer was great for the first 8 years the last 4 was money drain. I now consider myself a former Chevy man.
