I needed a second vehicle and so now my hilux DC has a friend ( since they come from the same stable more or less). it is a 1981 land cruiser that was rebuilt from top to tail 4 years ago. could not resist !
I see most of the hilux team is already on the landcruiser forum, so I am clearly not alone in my passion for old working cars !

Nice! Geluk, mooi wa.
Die enigste probleem met daai ou koetse is dat die drywer nat word in die reën.

When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

all the horses jumped under the bonnet to get out of the rain, the driver is a bit slower.

Very thirsty, but I always wanted an old, clean classic. SO this is it. Will get younger in my store and only be used for occassional trips.

if you lucky you can get a fairly clean one starting at around 40k or even less ( but must know what you are looking for as there are some chancers out there...yes hard to believe but true ! :shifty: ) generally a fair condition one is about 50k-60k. It is a lot of car for not much money and if you fix a few things and look out that you do not buy a rust bucket, it should outlast you and the kids. But one has to accept that it does drink quite a bit if driven gently and drinks seriously when pressed.
mine is in a fair condition but has 300k on the clock so there are bound to be issues I however will not be using it for long tours, so will fix as needed and then maybe one day if cash allows, do a full restoration.
the 1980 and 81 of the series 60's seem to be the best in terms of holding their values.
I have been offered 20k more than I paid for it already so I could not have done too bad in the purchase I recon...but watch this space, it might be famous last words.
