I love it.
My teenage daughter and son love it.
Even my Mini Driving wife loves it.
While I bought it for just $7,200 I've had to sink $3,000 into it to make it safe.
My guess is another $3-5K to bring it into good enough shape to last the next 100K miles.
So Far: Brakes, rotors, bearings, belts and a few other odds and ends.
Suspect: Shocks, Upper/lower oil pans.
Electric window motors.
Hydraulic lifts on rear window.
Starter...So... while it's a great car to run so well with 138K miles don't kid yourselves...Maintenance can add up!
Still...I won't trade it and may buy another if I can find the right deal.

I have this 1993 LC from Day One.
I have 304,000 miles on the original engine, transmission, water pump and alternator.
I just changed the starter about 6 months.
Reliabilty = #1.
I have never had any of the electrical issues mentioned about the 1993 Landcruiser.
I have the cloth interior and it still looks excellent after 19 years - that would not be true with the optional leather interior.
Longivity = change the oil, change transmission fuel, change all the gear oil.
New 4.5-liter inline six pumps out 57 more horsepower than last year's engine; output is up to 212. Air conditioning and cruise control are added to the standard equipment list. Front and rear differential locks are optional. New leather package is available. Side-door guard beams added.
