    I hate the both of you. Very desirable rigs. What's the joy stick manipulate? Gah, I was so close to going way too far into debt for one of these FJ's.
    I bet this is fun at the pumps.


    Thanks for sharing.

    Actually, it gets around 18mpg hwy and we were getting over 14 towing to Utah. I can live with that. The V10 version would be half that.

    I currently drive a white 1987 Chevrolet Turbo Sprint. I wanted one since 1986 when I was in High School and finally found one last year that was: 1) in good shape, 2) within a reasonable distance, and 3) for sale. I have only actually seen probably 4 of these in person outside of Dealer Showrooms. I bought it last year and have been commuting in it happily ever since. My best gas mileage was 39.xx, just a hair under 40 MPG and I live up a windy mountain road. The turbo gives it plenty of power and its' light weight makes it handle like a go-cart. It's not the fastest car on the road, but it's an unbeatable combination of fuel economy, handling and acceleration. I've never grinned as much with any other vehicle I've ever had.
    I also have a 1989 Dodge Caravan with 2.5 turbo and 5 speed manual transmission for hauling things and more seats. I also have a 1991 Honda ST1100 motorcycle.

    Thanks, the joystick buttons (momentary) are wired to: flash all AUX lights, train horn, and purge my air tank. Other than that it just replaced my shifter handle. Oh and the sad part is that I get a worse gas mileage than that excursion :( that was even when it was bone stock, then again I do have a heavy foot.

    No pictures of my own sadly, but I am currently driving...

    a 1.4 VW Polo - as a Brit and someone who mostly drives about town all your big monster trucks are a bit excessive, so this does the job perfectly.

    The two wheeled steed is a Gary Fisher Wahoo -

    http://board.trekkingthai.com/board/upload/photo/2004-09/mtb_0136.jpg

    Not hugely expensive, but a great bike and one that suits me perfectly for a mix of on and off road riding (on road to get places I need to go, off road when I am having fun ;) )
    So far I have needed to swap out the chain after snapping it somehow, and the rear derailleur after managing to break one of the adjusters on it that prevented it from using the bottom three gears...

    Here's my ride... A 2007 Toyota Tacoma Sport 4x4.

    And it gets dirty.

    When I pedal, I'm pedaling a 2010 Redline Monocog Flight, because gears and suspension are for old people. (J/K) ;D

    If you were really that cool you would be getting rid of the brakes and riding a fixed gear too...

    I ride a Kawasaki KLR650 most of the time. I drive a Kia Sephia when the weather is bad or work sends me out of town overnight. Don't like leaving the bike at work overnight. At work I drive whatever 18 wheeler they put me in. Typically a Freightliner day cab or sleeper depending on the time of year. Busy season, I get a sleeper. Wife has a '97 4Runner she drives.

    Haha! Touche!

    Although that would be a tough sell for trail riding.

    Bought my first cross trainer in 1990. A Giant (Schwinn) Butte in pearl white. Bone stock 21 speed w/ no suspension. I still have this bike and before I replaced it with a Giant Rincon in 1995 (with suspension) I had been a member of an Bike Adventure group in Seattle Washington prior. Being in my early/mid 20s then, I put about 150-200 miles a week on the Butte on average over two years. Three sets of tires and one rim (back) later, it's now my Daughters favorite bike to ride. Both are 21 inch frames. If I remember I'll get pics up of the pair. My daily driver is a 1987 S-10 and my weekend warrior is a full custom 1988 Silverado SS Clone.
