    An article in today's Wall Street Journal mentioned that Toyota started making Landcruisers in China this fall. They are only being sold in China.

    Wonder if there are any implications for the LC's future.

    I think that has more to do with Toyota trying to sell to the Billion+ Chinese population than anything else. China, due to it's communist/socialistic business system, requires that a certain percentage (more than half?) of certain categories of product sold in China must be manufactured in China. At least I think that's the way it was about 6 - 7 years ago.
