Haha, is the sky blue?
The legends are quite accurate since the car has phenomenal reliability. I've spent less than $600 on it in the 16 years my family has had it.
It had about 30k on the odometer when we bought it, and we've driven it ~250k miles ourselves.
We bought the overseas model with a manual tranny, diesel engine with a reserve fuel tank, and a higher lift for true off-road driving. From -40 F in Alaska to 115 F in Death valley, it has never failed us.
The 100 and 200 series Land Cruisers don't hold a candle to the old ones IMO.
