RealRides of WNY - 1971 Toyota Land Cruiser

In downtown Buffalo for last week’s Slow Roll bicycle ride, I came across this 1971 Toyota Land Cruiser just around the corner from the ride’s starting point. This one’s from the J-40 series, which was built from 1960-84. I had to laugh when I clicked on the Wikipedia page which cautioned at the top “Not to be confused with the Studebaker Land Cruiser,” hah, and LOL. Back in the day the J-40s were known for their rugged reliability in all kinds of terrain. Today’s Land Cruisers (it’s Toyota’s longest-running series — since 1951) are more like luxury land yachts which dwarf the original in size… and price.
