Accidentally bought a 64 f100 factory 4x4....took it out today, drives nice, easy, runs good, has exhaust leak, bit of belt squeal here and there but it's cool.

It looks like the A Teams van as seen in Mad Max the Road Warrior.

She's a beauty Clark

The OCD in me does notice the reverse rake and would have me looking for some super shackles to bring the rear up a bit

Looks like a fun cruiser for sure

#3416 29 days ago

The truck sits correctly. Perspective with the road, field and horizon plus the lack of fender arch in those factory rear fenders create the look I guess you are mentioning but in reality it sits ass up as it should. Thanks.

That's good to hear. Many classics turned into hot rods over the years. I grew up with Model A's and my father was in the Model A club. We would travel around to different shows and he loved his Victoria. I really liked the plush fabric interior and I miss the velvet velour couch feeling that modern cars and trucks are missing.

Quoted from pinmister:

I miss the velvet velour couch feeling that modern cars and trucks are missing.

The last car I owned that captured the magic feeling of velvet/velour interior was my K car. The K car was such a great car and the car that saved Chrysler. I have very fond memories of my K car my father gave to me. I fixed it up and took it to Maaco to get it painted bright white, then tinted the windows and put on a Thule mountain bike rack on the roof. I really loved that car and wish I could have tucked it away in a garage somewhere.

Many thanks to legendary Lee Iacocca

The new 2024 Toyota Landcruiser's arrived last week and we had the opportunity to check it out. We looked at the 1958 edition and it was ok but it did not knock our socks off. This edition was priced at $57,524 and while a considerable amount less than previous Landcruiser's it also reflected the price point with options and appearance. The front grill and bumper looked plasticky and the rear was also odd looking with a giant plastic cover over hitch assembly and black plastic trim. The interior was basic and the woven fabric reminded me of some of the 1970 vehicles. This vehicle is all about the engine and it's durability but it felt like a stripped down SUV in comparison to other manufacturers features.

After checking out the Landcruiser I started to compare it to the new 2025 Toyota 4Runner coming out this fall. We have owned 4Runners for many years now and really like the platform and size of the SUV. Well it looks like the new 4Runner may be more appealing to us as a potential family vehicle. Number one-is it looks badass, number two-it is available with a third row seat option(helps hauling kids with friends), number three-it comes in a non-hybrid model choice, and number four- the four wheel capabilities appear to be better than the Landcruiser. Looks like the main difference is the Landcruiser roof sits 5.03" higher than the 4Runner and the 4Runner price point is cheaper. -Will report back after we check out new 4Runner

I have kept my order for a new 6th gen 4runner trd pro in place for a couple years now and wasn't disappointed when they were announced... I like everything about them for the most part but obviously seeing them on the ground could change that when they're real and not just on a screen, but I doubt it. We have 2 4runners now and they're enormously useful for all kinds of things.... I still wonder if the larger sequoia would be good, one of each, actually, but we will see. Good to hear that your feedback on that LC. It's a shame.

Renault Sport Spider. (Would be called Alpine Spider today)
Ca. 1600 built.
No roof, no power steering, no power breaks, no heating. middle motor and rear wheel drive. Body is 30mm aluminium and plastic. 215km/h max, 150hp, 960kg. This is the version for sissies. The real men bought the ones without windshield. I didn’t want to drive with a helmet on, so I bought this version.

It’s like a grown up go cart and it drives great!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renault_Sport_Spider
They also have been used as race cars.

I considered one of these when looking at slingshots.

They are obtusely expensive when you find them. There's one for sale in Canada right now.

Yea I have had multiple vehicles that I have been interested in and they look good on paper and then when the vehicle actually arrives and you see it in person-you have a change of heart. I really wanted the Toyota GR Corolla and then changed my mind once checking it out in person and not liking the body style. I was interested in the Honda Civic Type-R but have decided I really do not like the new body styling on it and like my subie more.

The Landcruiser is a proven reliable brand and I am sure the new platform will perform well. The similarities to the 4Runner platform make it more of a standard SUV and the features do not stand out like previous generation models. The new 4Runner platform looks more refined with better body symmetry and lines in my opinion.

Was showing the wife potential color options for the 2025 4Runner and she really likes the Magnetic Grey and Lunar Rock while I really like the new Everest color that was thought to be only available in Trailhunter edition but is available for all trim levels.

It is a great color and what is nice about it is it is easy to keep clean and does not show dirt much. They also have my old truck's color available for TRD Pro in Cement color. It seemed like I barely had to wash my truck-and one of the best color vehicles I have ever owned.

What color are you thinking for the new 6Gen?

Probably the pro special color, right now they act like that's mudbath.

The plain steel wheels with no caps look so right on that.
Maybe add some tall skinny tires with the super traxion tread.. 7.50-16's (assuming those wheels are 16" of course)

#3445 22 days ago

I have another set with just that setup sitting in the bed of it, but my 66 has bfgs on it and really looks good with those... So not sure which way I'll go

Good choice, I would pick the 4Runner too. They ruined the LC.
If I was purchasing now would search for the lowest milage latest Model 200 Series could find.

My garage has been upgraded in appearance (drywall primed, drywall seams taped and properly mudded, Behr smooth silk paint on the walls and ceiling with gray accent paint on the door to the house and on the newly added baseboards) and function (oak cabinets added and five light fixtures mounted and wired in to replace two original "bare bulb" sockets).The Camaro ZL1 (never plated) and Mustang GT500 each have only ten miles on their odometers. The blue Mustang GT is my daily driver.
