That was the one. They shipped it in from Japan. I'm in the process of revamping the interior, new flooring, countertop, gas cooktop, sink, upholstery, and so on. I'll post some new pics soon!

It was obviously meant for a low-speed, low altitude urban environment, so it was a slug in our hilly, high altitude location. But it was fun to play with. Until it broke.

I never heard how it got here.
There is a 25 year law on titling imported vehicles in the US. This being a 91, 2016 is the first year it will be allowed to be rigistered and plated in the US.

Very nice. Was it made by Toyota?

When I was in college there was a fellow with an imported MGA with right hand wheel. Being a passenger was quite the ride. Raz

Toyota Hilux Galaxy 1993

I just purchased one of these great vehicles.
It's recently come from Japan with just 46,000 kms - such low mileage.
I'll post some interior pics soon.
Drives so well - like a car - no need to fear the dreaded camper diving into the corners.
And I went roaring through rivers in 4wd mode.
Can't wait to go camping!

Did you floor make creaking/crackling sounds when you walk on it? What's the solution?

VERY cool rig. Our first RV was a Toyota Dolphin and I still kinda miss it. You'll have a blast with this.
