The short ones are for ballet, those are for air, the other ones are for bumps, and the long ones are just for speed...

I'm more fond of those tail lights than the rack....

Gotta give the guy props though, I don't have much desire to drive a 90" wheelbase vehicle on snowy roads. I've done it, just don't like it!

You don't?

I mean, yeah, the price tag is high, but it takes the good part of an FJ40 (a great body style), and replaces all the bad stuff: these have good power, a set of real axles, and a suspension designed more recently than 400 years ago.

I'd never buy one, but when I build my 40, it'll be more like that than a stock 40.

(A side note: "when I build my 40" refers to the same point in the future as "when I win the lottery". )

I think it varies on what you get. I'm pretty sure I saw one for 85 or 90 once.

Saw a Groucho-like 80 this morning on Belleview turning south onto University. Had a Turbo badge on the left lower corner?
