    Nice, I like the idea!

    By the time visibility opened up, it was cliff city, and besides traffic was thick enough that fun driving wasn't on the table. Plus, scenery man... I can drive fast in better places, that was just a fun visual experience.
    Yeah, RMNP, and many other CO mountain roads, can be better for touristy sight seeing than canyon driving. Gorgeous scenery all over.

    Thanks for the info guys. I'm honestly not in a market for a truck, but the LC has always appealed to me, as have the LX. Just seem like nice vehicles all around.

    I try to avoid the idea of buying a truck, because then I might end up doing "truck" stuff, and I don't have enough time in a week as it is haha.

    Fast cars, loud guitars, a lot of hard work, patience, and crazy ideas. Yup, that about sums up my life.

    I can very much relate. I just spent a grand on a bumper for the Cruiser. I won a base rear bumper at an event and paid an extra $1000 or so to outfit it right. That could have been enough to jump start the engine build on the Supra, or buy a Kaminari wing and a lip.

    Time sink aside, though, I must say that Land Cruiser has been an absolutely amazing car. It's an ideal daily driver (aside from a premium luxury sedan maybe - cough Lexus LS, cough...) and has created lots of great memories with my wife, friends and hopefully my children in coming years. The Supra is awesome, but the enjoyment with that vehicle has been 100% me. The Cruiser is a far more practical hobby and attracts a much more friendly crowd, IMO. I hope as the Supra crowd ages it attracts a similar kind of dedicated and welcoming crowd. I think it will and that's a part of why I want to start a Supra club or organization in the Rockies.

    Next spring, Brad, we'll have to set up something and see if we can bribe a few other folks in the area to bring their Mk3's for a BBQ or something. Hopefully I'll have a freshly painted chassis by then!

    I'd be on board for a meet, weather permitting. I know the Colorado Supra group has an annual meet, but I'm not on Facebook so I usually miss the timing on it. You're right on the LS being a good daily though, just picked up a 2000 IJM LS400 after thanksgiving. Fantastic car to pile on the miles.
