So, the wife and I are watching "The Making of Planet Earth" on the Discovery Channel the other night. While interviewing the producer about wild camels in the Ghobi Desert in Mongolia he says "In a country the size of the United States, there are only 200-300 miles of road." Just as he is saying this, they cut to a seen of the videographers and their guide in the desert.....standing in front of an 80 series landcruiser.

So what do you drive in a country the size of the US and only 200-300 miles of road? Landcruiser. Cool.

Toya vs. land Rover

I used to own a 2002 LR Series II Discovery. (Flame on) I would go to Barnes and Noble and pay, like, $8.00 for the LR Owners magazine from the UK (see, everything with those POS are expensive). I was reading an article about some LR's trekking through the desert. They had a picture that showed their campsite from a distance. You had the LRs that they were doing the article on, but all the support vehicles were Landcruisers! :idea: :eek:

That is when the light came on for me. We are now the proud owner of two cruisers :) :D

In a perfect world toyota would still be selling 80`s:cool:

Moment of silence please.........................................................................................................................................................................................................
One day my 80 will die and I will ask myself why I didn't get a second and garage it for the future. Until then, I enjoy every minute I'm in it, and under it.
