    Now you just need the Mexico and Florida plates right next to them. :)

    "FL" and "Sonora" would be cool indeed.
    Did anybody notice the "For Sale" sign in the background? It's no longer for sale:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:. 25 TeslaPoints for the first correct guess as to the newest addition to our fleet (it's just a little​ tricky).

    That looks very boxy. Land Rover Defender?

    Nope!

    But yes, it is very boxy.

    So they were selling something in boxes. Come on, Audie, I didn't even see the sign without blowing up the picture. You are too bright, and too tricky, for me.

    Ah, come on. I'm not being that tricky. As in:
    .

    Here's a hint to those who know me: It's a fairly obvious addition. I'd seen this beauty around town all winter. And then there it was with the "For Sale" sign on it!

    It's not the most I've ever dropped on a used car, but it wasn't
    cheap. In fact, Poof! - there goes any fantasy I ever held that Superchargers are free (I never would have seen it parked there if I'd not been at the SpC, and there were a lot​ of people clamoring to buy this puppy, so I wouldn't have had a good chance to find it for sale later).

    But it is in near-"Barrett-Jackson" condition. Once I check out its tranny, I might revise that to "in prime Barrett-Jackson" condition.

    Looks like an old Toyota Land Cruiser to me.

    BIN_O!!!!

    You'll get the "G" once the correct model is given. That's the part I said was tricky.

    It augments our other Land Cruisers: our 1980 BJ40 and our 1985 BJ70.

    FJ62? Which would make it an 88-90.

    I'm not familiar with the differences between the models - hell, I didn't even know there were multiple models of them.

    Lots of 'em.


    Bill gets 25 points!

    It's an absolutely mint-condition 1988 FJ62 that I'm purchasing from the original owner. I'm off for the rest of the week but will post a pic or two in the "Other Vehicles" thread on returning.


    Later, all -
