    And Toyota engines are fairly bullet proof. I cannot say the same for Subaru engines.

    Have zero experience with SUB motors. Agree with you on the TOY engine. Had a real old Landcruiser in the 90's, then Sequoia, now FJ. On all 3 rigs, the list of stuff that broke, aside from exploding tires, was surprisingly small:
    thermostat - Landcruiser
    fuel pump - Sequoia
    alternator - FJ

    I am also looking at used Landcruisers for towing/surfing vehicle. I found a really nice one locally that looks like a 2000. It will probably be gone when I am ready to buy. Speaking of Toyota, I was also discussing buying a MR2 for a DD after the Suby is gone. I will have a few options, as the resale value for STI's is rather high.

    Something like this:

    my old gti I sold a few years ago - 24v vr6 6 spd - I miss her







    I sold it and had a 2001 TJ Jeep Wrangler 4.0 Lifted with 33's. It was great offroad but the ride-quality and on longer rides was less bearable than the gti slammed on coilovers (mpg was offensive too). I sold the jeep to get a 2003 VW Jetta Wagon 2.slow which has turned out to be comfy, decent on fuel, and a great vehicle to carry 4 boards and gear + 3 passengers, and my bike on a bike rack too.

    I've only owned Toyotas and Hondas and I agree. Honda engines will last forever, their transmissions on the other hand...
