    Hope the interior looks just a good!

    Only thing better than a day off like that would be that happening on a day you were AT work...

    Looks great and keep the photos coming.

        I get 606,5 Miles per Year! Not bad, it should be good for at least another 60-70,000 Miles. Lets see that's about 115 years from now at that rate! That's the year 2133!

          Nice car! Did you find out any of its history? Perhaps it belonged to a bachelor farmer that only drove it to town once a week for groceries?

            Congrats! Nice, solid looking car ! Did the airplane come with it, or were you just checking trunk space?

                The Land Cruiser is home. Now to go to the Douglas County treasurer and fix some lingering gremlins. Here are a couple pictures of the interior.

                    Well if you didn't already have one I would name this one Aunt Daisy. Then again, you could call it Aunt Bea. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L car!

                      That's my kind of car. Finding a low mileage unrestored original is the best way to buy them.
                      That will be an easy car to shine and drive, and being a V8 bullet nose, what more could a guy ask for.

                        I would love to find a two-door '51 Commander in decent shape. Paint wouldn't much matter because this is what I want to do to it:

                        Of course, the Fozzie Bear outfit would cost a fortune...

                            Beautiful car. Wish we could find them like that over here
                            The funniest thing about this signature is by the time you realise it says nothing important, it's too late to stop reading it.

                              We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                              Ayn Rand:
                              "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                              G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
