At my local Toyota dealer this morning getting oil & filter (10litres Valvoline Super Diesel 15w/40 and Valvoline filter for $55.00).
The guy in Spares suggested there may be something 'out the back' that might interest me.
So around the back- a 4WD Hilux with TRD stickers. It's has 4.0 litre V6 supercharged engine...!!!! Will be available early April.
Got my 'test drive' organised already !!

What's the old adage..If you've gotta ask the price- then you can't afford it !!!
Anyhow- I didn't ask the price & I still can't afford it !!

There is a mob on the gold coast doing supercharged landcruisers (petrol). They run one in the local tarmac rallies. Lowered slightly and a few suspension mods and sticky 'R' rubber. Saw the demo model preview at the Mt Cotton Hill climb a couple of years back. It was a second or two faster around the circuit than the WRX STis. Saw a few jaws drop at that one. The single lane bitumen circuit was about as wide as the car. Think it was about 600 hp at the wheels, and brakes that were at least 6 pot.
