    Last summer I sold my Japanese-market 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado. I really liked the Prado; it was unique, cool looking, reliable, and functional. You can read about it here (part 1), here (part 2), here (part 3), and here (part 4). But there were also some things about it that put it into my…

    Hey Hoons, Will here. For those who follow some of my car-buying ramblings on here or my Twitter posts (X is a stupid name, and I won’t use it), you’ll know I have a bit of a car problem. The problem is generally that I buy and sell too many cars. Not in the “flip…

    Toyota, to my knowledge, has never offered a remote starter button that was integrated into the factory key. I always found that omission odd, as most American and Asian automakers add the remote start feature to most mid-range and higher models. But I’ve never seen one on a Toyota or a Lexus. Other exceptions are…

    This is the real part one for my 1967 Ford Mustang. I’ve already introduced the car, but it’s time to actually get started. You can’t finish if you don’t start. So I started and I’m diving right the hell in… but ripping out the wiring. My plan is to rewire the car using the kit…

    The 2024 Toyota Tacoma is a greatly improved truck. And one of the bright spots, at least for me, has always been the TRD Off-Road trim. The new engine delivers great torque, the seats are comfortable, and the entire thing has been brought into the modern day. [Disclaimer: Toyota tossed us the keys to the…

    I love this truck. Of all the vehicles I’ve owned, I haven’t felt much of an emotional connection. I’ve enjoyed them, certainly, but when it’s time for one to shuffle off to a new owner, I’m okay with that. The Montero, however, is different. I’ve taken this one on adventures. My daughter has grown a…

    The Montero is at the shop and my Mustang is in the garage. Only one of these was planned. About a month ago, I was heading towards Arrowhead in California. Before starting the climb up Rt.330 which would take us there, I noticed an unwelcome noise coming from the engine in my Montero. My wife…

    I’ll admit, the first time I saw a new Toyota Crown I was not impressed. I think it was at the D.C. Auto Show, and while I was quite taken with the in-your-face styling, I was confused by, well that very same styling. However, I am a professional and when Toyota asked me if I…
