Land Cruising

I spotted these Toyota FJ-40 Land Cruisers in the back parking lot of Toyota of Ann Arbor. These classics were all low mileage, but rusted absolutely beyond belief thanks to what appeared to be continual use as snowplows. I wouldn't be half surprised if they had been used for 25 or 30 years.

The photos should speak for themselves. These old Cruisers are rare sights and it seems that fewer and fewer are preserved. Those that don't wind up as hacked up four-wheeling monsters rust away into nothingness. At least these colorful 4x4s are being used, I suppose.
