Default 70 Series envy?

Anyone else have some serious 70 Series envy after reading the Sept/Oct issue of Toyota Trails? I've had a case of it for some time, but the recent magazine seemed to have way more 70's than average. Some sort of subliminal thing going on there. The mustard colored on the cover is almost hypnotizing to me.

Why did the one on the cover have Wyoming plates?

Don't tell me the wind blew it all the way to Anarctica!

I don't think VDJ76 as there is not scoop for the intercooler. So I'm guessing some other power plant?

I should have said long wheel base 70 series. Yours is but not practical for me. I need room for the family. So I can understand why your getting over it.
