DOTS-O-Rama Sunday: Studebaker Cruiser, With Bonus Boler Trailer

Even though 1964 was the last model year for Studebakers built in the United States, Canadian production continued through 1966. I'm guessing this Lark Cruiser, which Project Car Hell Song creator Jack Astro photographed while visiting Victoria, B.C., is a '65, but it could be a '64 or a '66. Jack also shot a pretty… » 6/22/08 3:15pm 6/22/08 3:15pm

Toyota Urban Cruiser To Land At Geneva

Possibly because people who drive Land Cruisers tend to drive in urban areas, Toyota has decided to bring the production version of their Urban Cruiser concept to Europe.

Spy Photos: 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser

The newly face-lifted 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser is expected to officially lose camouflage for the Tokyo Auto Show later this year. While its platform-sharing 470-replacing cousin, the 2008 Lexus LX 570 may have already lost its black tape and tarp-wrap at New York earlier this year, we think it's just downright… » 6/27/07 8:30pm 6/27/07 8:30pm

Oh, Mon! Possible New Toyota Land Cruiser Spotted in Sultanate

Is this the new Toyota Land Cruiser? An Autoblog reader sent in these photos of what may be the next Cruisey, being tested in the Sultanate of Oman. It makes sense, considering that, for hot-weather testing, the Middle East is Asian and European carmakers' version of our own Death Valley.
