    Jacked up Hiluxes are sooo cool, I'd definitely get one if I thought i'd ever actually need epic chunky wheels or the mega ground clearance :sigh:

    I assume it has a big american V8 conversion done, heaps of huge foglights, massive bull bar and roll bar, at least two firearms with loads of ammo in the cabin, and the rear tray is full of beer and women in bikinis.

    youd put a big v8 in it too if your only engine choices involved gruntless gasoline motors. at least you guys got a decent turbo-diesel lineup. small, 4 cylinder turbo-diesel trucks havnt been made in america since the 80's. sad day.

    what i would give to have the 3.0 duratorq in my ranger....

    No, I just have the US version of the Hilux. It's literally an unnamed Toyota truck. On the other hand, I wouldn't mind doing an engine conversion on that truck. While the 22R is an excellent engine (especially the Fuel Injection one), after 20-ish years, the horsepower on the car isn't too much. Not to mention that for a truck, it's mighty weak, has drum brakes, and has a pretty mediocre auto gearbox.

    But hey it's nigh invincible still. V4 though. :(

    As proven on Top Gear a few years ago. It's still part of the set.

    I saw a Lamborghini Murcielago parked in Edinburgh city centre and took some pics of it... I'll try to find them (on a backup disk somewhere)

    Saw some sort of Maserati sitting outside the most expensive restaurant in town the other night - sporty looking thing in red - obviously - with a fat ass and a long bonnet suggesting a large engine, but I don't know what it was. I liked it a lot - especially the body shape and the rims, it's a really menacing looking car. I took a phone pic but it came out so grainy you can hardly make it out:

    And then I saw this rather cool looking Celica today:

    Again sorry for the totally rubbish phone camera picture, I think my iPhone's camera is dying.

    @Uni, that's a Maserati GranTurismo. Not sure of the model, the pic is too grainy.


    McLaren's opening a dealership down the road from where I live. Going to nip down next week and ask if I can get some shots on the floor and out back.

    Given my luck with the Ferrari chaps (ie: none), I'm not too hopeful, but it should be nice to see MP4-12Cs every other day on the bus ride.

    Think it is a Maserati Gransport... the rear lights are a giveaway and the curve on the bootlid.

    Yeah, my bad. GranSport/4200GT it is.

    @Uni - if that's an iPhone4, the sensor's definitely on its way out.

    Those pics are normal for a ipos4, it's a tiny phone camera what do you expect?
    My pics are from an ipos4 as well, but in hdr mode, it's a trade off between blur and dr.

    Crappy phone pics are better than no pics guys.... thread is wothless without pics, pics or it didn't happen, etc... :nono:

    3GS. Still think the sensor's on it's way out. This phone gets a lotttt of use. Free IP5 @ launch this September though... will be worth the wait :thumb:

    Nice call on the model, thanks for that. Now I add it to my want list ;)

    No, they aren't.

    I do agree that this thread needs way more pics.
    Not entirely my call :p
    If I were to lust after a Maserati, it would be the current GT, not the old one.

    Or an MC12 :naughty:
