Ladies and gents.

Please post details and pictures of what car you are driving currently and let us get to know thme better.

Members are requested to make one post each with details and a picture of their current motor of choice with details on what has been modded on it and what is planned in the future. If it has a special name do mention that too.

Your ride is an extention of your personality and we would love to see and hear about it on this thread.

So lets begin

I drive a 2010 FJ Cruiser AKA "The Greyhound" which has been slightly tweaked. Current mods include ICON 2" lift, TRD Cat Back, K & N High Flow air filter, BFG 285/75/16 tires on TRD rims, all weather matting and a few discreet TRD badges:smiley2:

Future mods planned are TRD Cold Air Intake ( once it is actually on the market ), UNICHIP and some lights for those wild night drives our dear shairman is famous for !:smiley8:

I drive Xazu - my Neyssan Badrool SWB manual 4.5 year 2000
no mods, she is fine as she is!

Also drive Bluelion's Funky Jalopy - FJ 2008 with no mods

and some day, if I am really lucky
I will get to take our 2006 Jeep Wrangler sport out on to the sand! (Still in garage getting sorted, 5 weeks and 4 days after accident!)
no mods on it either :) YET

I drive a Psycho, 2002 white Lexus LX470, engine has been changed to 2005, changing the look to 2006.

Mods, only 3" air filter, and replaced the middle exhaust filter with a pipe :D .

Future mods,, not sure yet,maybe headers... but definitely lights,, lots of them :P

here are the pictures,, I paint the black paint with the punisher skull when I switch to psycho mode :P


----------
Update: I forgot to put my Landcruiser RJ70 year 1985.
there is no modification at all,, but I'm planing to change the engine with the gear and I'll do some modifications,, probably I'll need your advices later :)

Great responce guy ....just what I was looking for.

sometimes it is hard to put a name to a face but if you post your car pics here it becomes more easy to remember who is who and does help a good bit.

Moreover when we know what others are driving and see the cars on the streets in Abu Dhbai it opens up the possibility of a nice chat or even a cup of tea together.

I request all our members Marshals and Founders to post about their respective rides here

Elsie, my family 1994 Toyota Land Cruiser FZJ-80 - one of the best 4x4 vehicles I've ever had the pleasure of driving.

Almost fully stock, with front and rear lockers, cool-box, dual A/C, dual petrol tanks, and pretty amazing stuff considering it was built 16 years ago! This is the model that really made LC famous.

I bought it maybe 5 years ago in very good shape. And I do all maintenance (repairs never needed!) by myself, except changing the timing chain, which went to the dealer.

This is how they clean the engine:

Original colour:

Climbs good!

New paint:

Image

Changing the front wheel bearings:

All is fully stock, except I've added an external tranny cooler... and Sumitomo Shaheen sand service tyres:

Image

and, lastly.... it's actually my wife's car!!!!! LOOOOOL and the family camping machine.

A man after my own heart PR. Old is gold, and doing your own maintenance is much more fun than waiting for the dealer to say two days and you get it back two weks later with a list of unwanted repairs that cost more than the vehicle!
~Looks cool, and if you ever decide to get rid of it let me know. I may be interested!
