Got a new camera today, and needed something to take pictures of. My subject in these pictures happened to be my 1971 Toyota Landcruiser that I plan on either restoring or turning into a wheeling rig when I manage to get the time for it. Feel free to make any comments/suggestions.

Have to run now, but I have a few more of the straight six under the hood that I might stick up later.

Preferably EFI and manual trans

I did a PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection) on an 08, man they are nice but I think for $75k I'd rather have a motorhome!

I wouldn't mind one of those TT legacys, but I'm afraid it still technically belongs to my granddad, and other family members have had their eye on it for a while.

I'm still not 100% sure what to do with it, whether just fix it up enough to wheel it, or restore it and try to keep it clean. I haven't been home enough to work on it since school started, but this summer it is going to get a lot of attention.

While it does start and run, there is no interior, and the entire floor pretty much needs to be replaced. Then it needs tires and probably some suspension work. I feel that as a college freshman with limited income, this project is a little over my head, but I am planning on starting on it anyways and I'll just see what happens.

I would have built an FJ if I could go back and do it again. They are the perfect size, so so short, with enough width and cargo room to really make a build worth it.
