Troopie! I got to drive one of these around on Fraser Islend in Australia a few years ago and it was a blast. I can't imagine having one in the garage ready for adventure at any moment. Just ask @big_red_troopy how awesome it is!
Before starting this project I gad never heard of overlanding was, but now that I've illustrated several overland rigs I'm officially intrigued. It looks like @overlandbound has really nailed the concept on its head. Today's drawing marks the 240th Toyota variant in my quest to illustrate all 260 sold in the US since 1958. Only twenty left, then I might take a small break since I've been pumping these profiles out daily for the past 410 days. Or, I might not. Thanks to @trailborn_yota for throwing me the line on this one.
Are there FJ40s everywhere? Here in Portland they are a common sight, scattered throughout the city like pepperoni on a pizza. Some are crusty, sure, but this original specimen looked nearly perfect. It checks all the right boxes.
My quest to draw every Lexus is nearly complete. It's not easy to find a tastefully-modified Lexicruiser, but after some serious hunting I finally found @ali___470's luxobarge. The front bumper is a little different than the US-spec, so I wonder if this is aftermarket or maybe just a different design for his market. No matter, I like it.
Number 174 in my quest to illustrate every Toyota to hit our American shores, and this one is another rarity. There are a TON of Land Cruisers still on the road, I see one almost every day, but I don't think that I've ever seen a four-door wagon. Plenty of photos of this rig and its adventures on @rangerrex55's IG page.
Major milestone today, this is the 200th consecutive day of this project and I have somehow found the time to keep it going. ih8mud.com forum member ClemsonCruiser has this awesome FJ45 pickup that deserves some appreciation. Not only that, but it is the 100th model in my quest to illustrate 255 generations and body variations of every single Toyota vehicle sold in the states. Whew. When do I get a break?
Finally knocked out all US generations of the Land Cruiser with this FJ40, owned by ih8mud.com forum member 70 FJ40, and fellow Oregonian over in Ontario.
This is the second-to-last Land Cruiser in the lineup of American generations. The 60-series launched in 1981 and ran through 1990. This last year example is owned by ih8mud.com forum member and Atlanta resident, robustbambi, and is an excellent example of the eighties infatuation with fake woodgrain paneling.
