Ride: Falcon

Location: Sydney

That reminds me of my grandmother's 60 series Landcruiser. It's only done about 240,000KMs, but it still uses the original clutch. :P (They're supposed to be replaced at 80,000 - 100,000 or something). It's quite funny when people who have never driven it before have a go, as the clutch catches with the pedal practically fully out. :P One day, there'll be nothing left of it...

Toyotas last. Forever.

I can't resist this post:

My old 1975 FJ45 land cruiser was originally a west Australian mining crew truck, converted into a duel cab, the guy I got it off worked for the mine as an engineer and he bought with 1.5mil on it in the late 80's, he the put another 1.2mil on it (he lived in NSW and worked in WA still plus traveled around Aus a number of times) and I got it around 96 with 2.7mil (had all the original log books) I put another 200k on it so when I sold it it had a grand total of 2.9mil. And I still got $4500 for it.

It still had the original engine but had two rebuilds and a lot of parts replaced in it's time but was still going strong with 2.9mil.

(edit)
Couple more stats:

had a 4.2l petrol on LPG
350 holly carby
Perry extractors and 3" exhaust system
weighed in at 3.5t
You could see the road through the floor in the back...

Toyota's do last forever
(/edit)

As for falcons, XF fairlane wagon (one of 7 made) 820k and a tonne of rust. I ended up giving it away.

Yep my fairlane has 1,078,000 kms

For those that have seen the fairlane it does not look like a high mileage vehicle in any way.


of course it wouldnt look like a high km car... its only done 78,000kms ;)
