I must confess...

I am letting an old Land Cruiser LJ70 rot in my backyard, and I feel bad about it.

The body is rusty all around. And most body panels have are dented.

The engine needs a head gasket (best case scenario)

The interior smells terrible as it was a hunters car. The dash is cracked, and the seats torn.

It’s been sitting for 2-3 years now. The previous owner can’t drive anymore, but for a long time he didn’t want to let go, thinking he will drive it again one day (he won’t). He finally signed the paperwork a few months ago.

If I didn’t have too many projects, I would restore it. It’s a lot of work, but it has a good frame. But I couldn’t justify keeping it when I have the Pajero. It will probably be sold as project/parts car in the next months.
