In the Toyota ads Hiluxs can withstand anything, so it is clear the cruiser couldn't even withstand the onslaught of a Tonka toy.

Cruiser had less than 1000k's on it

Oh well, that settles that then.
If it's in an ad, it must be true:-)

The 'proof' (ad) isn't in your post though....only a crushed Cruiser.

Nice bit of fishin......

I can tell you that the front of my next door neighbour's Hi Lux was totally destroyed by a frontal impact at 4km/h. That's right 4 km/h.

Amazing how much damage a reversing garbage truck can do.

True story. We didn't hear the impact, but got woken up by the loud, and rather choice, language of the Garbo's.

Jim.

Yeah Jim,
but if your neighbour had rolled it down a big MF hill and filled it with coconuts it wouldn't have been damaged at all.. LOL

I saw a tray back like that at Blair Athol mine. Forman returned to workshop, parked behind dump truck, beside sign that said... Warning, do not park in workshop doorways. Do not park behind dump trucks.
Dump truck reversed from workshop, mechanic thought something wrong when warning sensor for left hand rear drive axle went off..
Nuff Said

Mr Ape,

Conclusive evidence in my mind. Thanks, I'm off to buy a Hilux.

If you could buy the wreck fo $10 the back looks like it would make a great trailer.

Willie.

Willie,

would you be game to tow anything from a cruiser behind your Hilux, the lux might catch the breaking virus off it. Risky option

Have a good one

G'day Rockape.

This is obviously a new definition of 'drivable' of which I was previously unaware.

:-))

Cheers,

Thing called a handbreak was involved I believe, as it mentioned there were brand new wheel chocks in the back, unused.

They wreck perfectly good cruisers just because they have "mineral dust" in them! Surely they could be cleaned up to acceptable standard and sold cheap as chips - I'd buy one!
