Do you remember when Toyota made cars and trucks that were different, reliable, sporty, and brimming with personality? The Hilux was rugged and reliable, could haul almost anything you want, get better than good gas mileage, and last almost forever. The FJ Land Cruiser has an enviable reputation for outlasting governments, crossing the Amazon, or being the ride of choice on Safari. The Toyota Celica was a Japanese Mustang that had better reliability, with later models becoming available with turbocharged engines, and all-wheel drive. And there is countless other models that shows how Toyota has lost the playbook when it comes to interesting vehicles.
So stay tuned to see what Classic Toyotas I come across during the Hooniverse Weekend Edition, and if you have a Toyota you want highlighted, send me an e-mail. Let’s see if we can get that “Oh What a Feeling” again.
