 My Toyota Landcruiser Prado 120 series

Well, finally I have purchased the vehicle that I have wanted for some time now... a vehicle that suits my requirements perfectly. Toyota reliability, power and economy from the 3 litre D4D engine, long touring range from the twin 90 litre tanks. It's standard credentials are already quite good, but I have many goodies that I want to fit...
