[SPAM][SP] ELCO Would you interest in LC 200 model?



Hi Andy,
I was driving FJ for two weeks in Dubai - I was not that impressed ...
In my opinion it is quite a different animal then lc80. It look nice
from outside but it has all plastic interior and far less space. The
back doors are a bit annoying - they can not open if the front doors
are not open as well ...
I did quite a lot of sand driving with it and it performed quite well
since it is lighter (the overall weight is lowers and we didn't carry a
lot of stuff with us ...) then 80 and it has quite powerful engine.
FJ's are quite popular in US and they have good reputation there but for
overlanding I wouldn't consider it as an option ... 80 is far more
robust and it can carry a lot of load and it is "battle proven vehicle"...
just my 2 cents....
