i remember the times in the 80s when SUVs, sorry, off-road vehicles where driven by hunter, construction manager, forest worker or expedition teams here in germany. and when i think at these days there comes one characteristic bold and edged big car to my mind: the TOYOTA LAND CRUISER 70. mostly seen in sand or dark green and blue colors. and you still see these models from the early 80s in the streets here in germany. whatever, TOYOTA JAPAN celebrates the 30 anniversary of this iconic model with a re-releasing for just the year 2014. it is powered by a 4.0L V6 engine, a part time 4WheelDrive and some other nice contemporary features for about $35.000. the only problem is to get this 2K TOYOTA LAND CRUISER 70 from japan to germany or anywhere else. pics & film | © TOYOTA
what a wonderful car! found @ awesome MAN OF THE WORLD site. maybe you do not know this site? then it’s time to check it out, not only because of great vintage cars but because of a lot of other interesting things for men: www.manoftheworld.com .
but take a look at the facts of this beautiful FORD BRONCO given by MAN OF THE WORLD: “Straight forward design, bulletproof driveline and a well-established network of enthusiasts have made the Ford Bronco a favorite with vintage SUV fans, who will like what they see in this 1976 model that was treated to a frame-off restoration completed in 2010 and has since been driven fewer than 1, 000 miles. Showing a believed-accurate 67,000 original miles, this smart-looking and fresh White-over-Blue Bronco is powered by a 302/125 HP 2-barrel V-8 and equipped with factory bucket seats, air conditioning, power steering and brakes and automatic transmission.”
42,000,00 bucks and it will be yours … pics | MAN OF THE WORLD
found this just some minutes ago at spiegel.de when i checked the news for today. isn’t this ELECTRO HUMMER HX sweet? when GM stopped 2010 the production of the HUMMER they sold the license to china. UK based MEV owns a license too and produces this “political correct” HUMMER HX. 20 PS power, 45 km/h slow and about 30 to 50 km can be done with this shrink HUMMER. in germany not one “HUMMER-lein“ could be sold. MEV says that the most cars were shipped to the USA for the use at golf courses or big housing estates – no wonder: about 18.000 EURO must be paid for this little thing. too expensive and the electro powered engine technic is an old one. pics | TOM GRÜNWEG
