The joys of owning a vintage car

I always wanted an old Toyota Land Cruiser! I took this picture on New Year's Eve at Sears, where I was getting a new battery for one of our cars. The lucky owner of this beast told me it was a 1972. It may be old, but it's got a zillion times more style than 99% of the cars out on the roads today. She had brought it to Sears to get new tires, and they put the tires on with the white stripe facing outward. No, no, no! I too own a vehicle of exactly the same vintage, a '72 BMW, and I'm just as picky about the tires -- they should be solid black! Of course she had them turn the tires around. I've done exactly the same thing. Trust me, I get it!

Quite a car, and rather well stocked!
