    Cry the Beloved Country

    Could not think of an appropriate place to put this, so if an admin could put it somewhere appropriate I would appreciate it, thanks. Some terrible news from South Africa, video not for the sensitive, sadly not going to make it into mainstream media I think...

    So, music videos?

    This one is one of my favorites, it stars my favorite truck, I have driven one in very similar terrain in Botswana and South Africa. She was a ex police 2H diesel with a 5 speed gearbox and still had her police canopy and had been painted black (bloody hot to drive in the heat) with red and grey...

    Interesting read

    I know this is for the new 70 series but seeing as how my truck has the H151 box according to Toyodiy and I have long felt that I would like to be at lower rpm when motorway cruising in 5th gear the info that Toyota now have a 15% taller 5th gear I find myself wondering if it can be made to fit...

    Off Topic

    I know we mostly discus the finest of 4x4 vehicles and their uses on this forum, but I felt I should share this video with all my fellow addicts of all things adventurous. I found it very good. Link HERE watch from 3:06.

    Modified 80 on Gumtree Australia

    We think Cruisers are expensive in the UK, I spotted this one in Australia advertised on FB. At current exchange rates his 31 thou Australian Dollar is £17 539. Mind you it does look like he has spent a bit maintaining and decorating it.

    Seen on FB

    As opposed to seen on YT, ........ I recently saw a post on FB, link HERE which got me thinking, I hope they do a YT series of videos ;) Well they do have a YT chan HERE but it's a bit lacking. Oh er well. More info HERE and HERE makes it look like a challenge and eventually a interesting vehicle.

    Stolen RTT and Rack

    Not certain this is the best section of the forum to post this but for those of us who don't follow Overland Cruisers on FB or the Toyota 4x4 FB page HERE is a link to the stolen rack and tent, would be good to keep an eye out for them, and of course now we know that the criminal element is...

    This came up in my FB feed, all I can say is oh my word, don't think I would want to find out how it handles and certainly don't want to know what it's fuel consumption is, what is it you ask? Clicky here.

    Uhuh, ..........

    Great expectations or high hopes? This looks somewhat inappropriate to me, or is it ...... Having been passenger in one of these I would never have thought it was the appropriate vehicle for what this fellow seems to think it is, still takes all sorts and they may be onto a winner.

    Bad obsession

    I don't recall seeing this on here but due to U tube showing me videos I might be interested in I have discovered these people, they have a interesting series of videos on U tube about Project Binky. They also have a website. Bit OT but by golly the fabrication is good.

    Worth it?

    I on occasion peruse flea bay to see if there is anything that interests me, came across this advert http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Toyota-Landcruiser-HJ47-Not-Landrover-/251886929646?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item3aa5a186ee I liked the fact that the seller saw fit to include the text not landrover.

    DHS hates landies?

    Came across this on a site I had never found before, was amused to read the below linked posts, seems the USA is suspicious of why any one would want to drive a Lame Rover. http://www.defendersource.com/forum/showthread.php?t=54930

    Bored?

    So there I was innocently trawling YT for some mindless entertainment when I found this, I think the camera work could do with improvement but one gets the idea we would not be allowed to do participate in this sport in most countries so good on them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSuE9Jv_pWQ
