Remembering Japanese cars from the past

DOTS: 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser


Last week I spotted a big Toyota parked near the office. A few hundred meters later I vaguely remembered what it was and returned to the spot. It was a Toyota FJ Cruiser:

When I saw the pictures on the net in 2006 and 2007 I always thought the FJ Cruiser was much bigger than this, in my memory it had at least the proportions of a Hummer H2. Well you can see it is actually smaller than the Volvo XC90 parked next to it!

Then after taking the second shot the crap-cam died on me again, so you will have to do with this shaken (but not stirred) shot of it:

I must say the FJ Cruiser surely has great looks! If I had to choose between the XC90, H2 and a FJ Cruiser I would certainly go for the FJ Cruiser! 😉
The only thing that would stop me was my wallet at the next gas station. 🙁

    One of the lads on my football team has one of these in Blue with a white roof and looks the dog’s bollox. They need to add it to the Toyota European line-up. The turbo diesel from the Landcruiser would do nice.

    With the current gas price in Europe an optional diesel would be great I guess! On the other hand the Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 V8s (not the diesel models!) are very popular cars nowadays, so apparently people have enough money to feed such a monster in Europe. 😉

    haha you right, the gas price was the pain in the pocket.
