Military Toyota Mega Cruiser Scrapyard, plus two Civilian-spec Beauties

October 25, 2017

Yes, this is Toyota's Hummer, and just like the Hummer, used primarily by the armed forces. On the weekend I came across about 30 of them all waiting to be recycled.

This Megacruiser 4X4 was built in 1993. It has a 4,104cc inline 4 engine.
