It didn't take long before I realized I had to tow my Bambi with something besides my '87 Toyota FJ60. Even though I have modified my Toyota's 4.0 litre in-line six quite a lot (hey, tinkering needed an object of focus before I got my AS,) the power just wasn't there. It really sucks being on a great trip and knowing a grade is coming up that I wish I could pull better and being all nervous about it--not cool. Of course, So, now I have the comfort and safety margin associated with a larger vehicle. Haven't gotten my brake controller hooked up yet, or my seven blade connector, but that'll come. Jeez, I just got my Bambi in November and poured a bucket of money into her and now a new tow vehicle. My wife smells blood and my Land Cruiser is on her short list.
She's been a good old girl, but her time has come and someone will definitely dig getting one of the coolest Old Land Cruisers around. Before getting my AS I would have said with confidence I would never part with my LC, but thats not the case now. I haven't mentioned the reason why to my wife, but truth be told, I think I can spend more money on this little Bambi than I could on my Land Cruiser. Well, that's probably not quite true, but the comfort of the thought will help me let her go.
Anybody else (or everybody) fallen so hard for their AS that they dumped their previous obession(s) so quickly?
