Default Tough Truck

Oh my gosh. This was on the LCML, just got a chance to view it. This is a video of a guy who tried, but couldn't kill his hilux. Between running into a tree, letting it get swallowed up by the ocean, setting it on fire and blowing it up in a highrise, that darn Toyota just kept on going. Warning, it's about a 17 minute video, but totally awesome:

I saw that on TV once, just watched to whole thing again. Pretty amazing.

I only have two comments:

1. Makes me proud to drive a Toyota.
2. I really want that Mechanic to look over my 40!

We're not mechanics (okay we have several pros in the club), but bring it to the annual wheel bearing packing party and we'll look it over! Who knows, we may actually have a constructive observation or two :-)

Date for party is typically early-mid April. Mike and I will firm it up in the coming weeks. Pizza and wrenches ...grunt grunt...
