I'll keep that in mind. I did a review of the 2009 Land Cruiser, but that was several years ago.

Your father had good taste. ;)

Both were excellent big American luxocruisers, but by, 1973, the Mark IV you mention had begun to show the effects of EPA-emasculated engines. They were hard to...

Thanks. :) I tried to be objective as usual, but there just wasn't very much to complain about in this car (besides my usual pickings). Hyundai did a great job with it.

Nope...well-satisfied with it. It combines a lot of the Genesis's refinement (but not the power) in a much smaller, more nimble package. Where I live, a Genesis would be too cumbersome to park, even...
