Introductions and importing from Japan

Hi there
Just been given a link to this list.
I'm not a Land Cruiser owner yet, but I'm saving up for an 80-series
Turbo Diesel.
I've just sold my Range Rover Classic, and fancy an 80 series next.
I'm not in any rush to buy, so I thought about importing from Japan.
I've imported a vehicle from the States before, I'm close to Southampton
docks, and I've got a neighbour who can speak/read Japanese, so it
doesn't seem too bad.
Anyone here done a personal import ?
Is there a good choice of '91-'97 80 Series left in Japan, or are they
all here already !!
That will do for my first post.
Oh - here are a few piccies of me and my mates in Fraser Island
Australia a couple of years back

Hey Andy, welcome to the dark side !
How about converting the ibex to an all-toyota running gear ? This has
been one of my projects for a long time ;o)

Andy,
Welcome, enjoy the cruiser when you get it.
Most of the imports coming in now are Amazons, the 80's dried up
a couple of years ago. You could probably still get one if you try
hard. I think most of them went to Australia, not here. The only thing
I've imported is an East German army truck, no comparison to a car.
Watch the specs on the cruisers, they differ wildly in different areas
of the world. Most of the Jap ones do not have diff locks, or a third
row of seats.
Regards, Clive.
