    I can not deal with

    1. the brand image
    2. the gross mouth front grill

    The grill on the recent Lexus models reminds me of a Cylon helmet. Can’t unsee it now. 

    Smiley It is a very strange styling indeed . Brand image here is good , even if they do not sell very well .

    Had a 100 Series petrol engined Landcruiser (straight 6) in the Northern Territory in the mid 1990s whilst working as a hospital doc. Think Darwin, Kakadu National Park and Crocodile Dundee.

    Absolutely bullet proof. Would like to think Toyota still make them that way.

    Also no speed limits on the open roads in the NT back then. Combined main and reserve fuel tank capacity of 145 litres disappeared quickly at 180km/hr in a Landcruiser

    The RAM Hellcat version comes out in September this year. Unless Dodge delays the introduction or even abandons the project due to the corona crisis. Smiley

    The Ford Raptor V8 has around 400 hp I think and if you need more, there is always the Velociraptor Smiley from Hennessey (see photo) and it is my understanding that Ford also offers some official tuning for the Raptor but I don't have details (US dealers should know).

    Watt, your cattle are adorable! I love scottish highland cows, they look amazing and mean, but are quite docile. I remember a friend had a couple walking around in a park next to his house, and you could easily walk between them, even with a calf and bull around (the calf would try to find out whether your fingers were edible...)

    I was there in the second half of 1994. Great times.

    Have been back on numerous occasions and so would have been there late 90's and early 00's.

    Haha, that's cute!  We have Coos and chooks here, same asSmiley  The big ranchers don't grow them as they're slower to grow and smaller on slaughter but the meat has great attributes.  Athena, Augusta and Acacia are mostly pets... who may just disappear one day.... and return in the freezer.

    Wonderbar:

    Watt, any danger from wolves or mountain lions?

    Yes, always.  In winter especially, when the Labs are feasting on lion kill, I carry a full size Glock 20 10 mm in a chest rig. In summer a compact Glock 29 10 mm belt rig with 200 gr moose loads, as moose charges are the summer issue.

    One contemplates carrying a rifle in 22 WMR/.308 scout rifle or such if the lion is on one of your Labs, but it's pointless as you might hit the dog.  The handguns are for 1] the noise to scare, and 2] if they want me. Sooner or later, I'll lose a dog, but this sure beats grizzly country for relative safety!

    Now, the Elk have receded from the valleys back up the mountains, and the lions and wolves follow, so up here is lion land now:

    BTW, I would never come up here w/o Sun Ra to lead, or unarmed, like that it's only a matter of time.

    And snowing again, every day now as we get further up and inSmiley
