An extremely beautiful J60 Toyota Land Cruiser, seen on the Car Meeting of Beijing tuning show on the Golden Port race track. Happily, there was nothing tuned about this Toyota, it was indeed one hundred percent original and in absolute perfect shape, and with the rare vertical-bar grille!

A very muddy Toyota Land Cruiser, Spotted in China on a small square close to a supermarket near my home in Beijing. The mighty Cruiser was in a good shape, clean paint and clean stickers, shiny chrome and plastics, nothing broken or missing, and original down until the wheels.

An incredible badass Toyota J60 Land Cruiser, Spotted in China on a wrecking yard in east Beijing. The vehicle was in a reasonable condition. Body was bruised and very dirty, but hell this is a Land Cruiser, so it should look like it just bumped over the Himalaya. The ‘Cruiser was fitted with a large roof rack and a protruding bumper for an extra heavy winch.

Spy shots showing a very sporty Toyota Land Cruiser testing in China. The vehicle has been sportified by an all-round body kit and chromed roof rails. Boddykitting a rugged SUV like the Land Cruiser doesn’t seem to make much sense, the mountains you know, but most Land Cruisers in China never leave the highway.

A sinister Toyota Land Cruiser 80 Series in matte black, seen in the great city of Foshan in Guangdong Province. Wrapped SUV’s are still relatively rare but looking at this Toyota we think there should be more! Wrap extends neatly over the bumpers but the mirrors were sadly forgotten. The vehicle is further sexed up by extra-wide wheel arches, a bull bar, special head lights, a roof rack an huge wheels.

This is a very pimped Toyota Land Cruiser J70 seen on the Auto Tuning Car Show in Beijing. Production of the J70 started in 1984 and continues until today, making it one of the longest running ‘single cars’ (unlike for example the Toyota Corolla which has been redesigned a zillion times) in the world. The J70 Land Cruiser isn’t officially exported to China so this great pimpo likely came to Beijing via the gray market, it is the first J70 I ever met in China.

A sad sight; a very abandoned Toyota Land Cruiser 60 Series seen on a car part market in Beijing. The mighty Cruiser stood tucked away in a corner of a giant parking lot, seemingly not touched for many a year. The problem for this tough Toyota is the same facing so many fine old cars in the capital; ever stricter environmental regulations make it impossible to keep ’em on the road legally, even though they still running like a baby crying.
