A pair of???


Chevy something-or-other


Seatless j truck/surfboard sign holder


This Land Rover isn't old but it is funky

what do you mean a pair of "????"

Those look like some beautiful FJ40's to me.

I didn't know what they were. I took the picture while driving by. They're cool. That spot was a mechanic and there was also a white grand wag in the lot.

By funky old trucks I mean funky old trucks that I think are cool. Some of which I couldn't identify. Like the chevy van. It had a chevy symbol on the front but it looked a little like those ford falcon vans.

Yep, old mid 60's Chev Greenbriar van. Also made a p/u version and IIRC the truck had a lay down door that was a loading ramp on the side, ala VW p/u back then. Have not seen a van for 30 years and a p/u for going on 40.

The cruisers were/are VERY capable rigs and can still kick the tail feathers of a lot of current day production vehicles. Same with the Nissan Patrols of that vintage.

Original LR's are supposedly reversed engineering of the Willys MB just after the war

Whoa! Nissan patrols are cool. Never heard of them.

Land rovers are crazy expensive! I'd love to get one but it's out of my price range. The little 90 pick up is pretty neat.

Patrols were imported for a few years and then they quit. Emissions and lack of sales for the most part. Was popular elsewhere in the world, and recently you could source parts out of Canada. Looked like the LR's of the day, but the grills were not recessed.

Had a railroad guy we knew, and he had one. Climbed a ridge after his son tried it in a new Ford p/u and only got halfway up. Happened to go by a couple of weeks later and told us he asked the kid what they were planting on the hillside...... kid said ????? Dad goes, happened by and see that none of you made it up and it looks like a plowed spring garden, I wont some of the produce.

He got it stuck in a wash in Black Rock Desert out of Gerlach, NV. Was turning around and backed it up the wash wall and when he came down stuck the front bumper in the opposite wall and rode up it a little....all 4 were off the ground. Took about an hour to dig it loose and get out of there, hoping all the time-Please no desert thunder storm.
