It's hard to not be jealous of the Japanese car market. They seem to get all the cars Jalops want but US Jalops never get. The most recent news out of land of the rising sun is that they are going to bring back what is essentially a restomod version of the 70-Series Land Cruiser for another year.
What makes it worse is they are making a pickup version too:
Toyota expects to receive roughly 200 orders a month for the off-roader, which goes on sale today at dealers throughout Japan. The Land Cruiser 70 will be available as a four-door van and, for the first time in Japan, as a double-cab pickup truck. Both variants will be built at the Yoshiwara plant in Japan.
First launched in Japan in 1984, the Land Cruiser 70 has heavy duty specifications adapted for off-road driving, with its ladder-frame construction making it a robust and durable model. Both variants are offered with a 4.0-liter V6 petrol engine and part-time four-wheel drive. The engine has an aluminum block and VVT-i technology, producing 231 PS (228 hp) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque. Toyota says the Land Cruiser 70 averages 6.6 km/l (15.1 l/100 km or 15.5 mpg US). The engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
I want one of these and an R34 Sky Line RIGHT NOW!!!!!
