The only good Toyota is a flat Toyota

Found this looking around. Don't know if you've seen it before.

just to make you laugh, a similar thing happened by accident to a brand new (380km on the clock) 70 series trayback about 3 weeks ago at a mine up here...... the open cut examiner parked his ute to investigate a burning haul truck, the fire killed the brakes on the haul truck, and it rolled right over the landcruiser!

G'day All, Thats been around for quite a while now, and in my opinion it wasn't fitted with engine or transmission when the dumpster rolled over it, and just imagine what your Land Rover would look like as well, very flat indeed cheers Dennis

I don't think that I'd be risking the cost of damaging two truck tyres on flattening a Toyota. There must be a cheaper way: the price of one tyre on a truck that size is in excess of $40,000 and has a 12 month supply time.

I wonder if the driver still has a job...no not the toyota driver.

The Toyota didnt have any engine or gearbox as the tyres are actually worth $100K each they took them out. I was told it was done at Paraburdoo
