Default toyota's take

I'm sure most have seen this, but if you haven't its fun.
Little gadgety but worth the glance,

from the 20 series to the vdj79 (I want one) it is interesting to see Toyota's perspective on their own history

I was mesmerized, granted that is not all that hard to do.

more fun was the "vist land cruiser heritage site" videos I've seen some other content I had not.

But then neither would be a FJ55, any Prado, 100 and 200 series. But I don't disagree, the 25/40/60/62/80 are the core Land Cruisers, particularly the 40/60/80 are what really gave the name it's respect even if there are 3:1 the number of Hiluxes working around the world than Cruisers.

yea it would be a pretty crowded horizon shot if they put them all in there. .

one thing I found interesting was that there are two 80-series
the one is the 'generic' 80 us-spec type vehicle, but they make sure to call out the japanese spec HDJ80 as a "very different animal from its US counterpart. Equipped with the 1HD-t ..... "

almost as if to say, yea we had to compromise on the US model, but here's the Japanese 80.

Just interesting that they left out many other models, but felt it important enough to show the 2 80's distinguishing the japanese spec from the rest....
