They should hit the Carl’s Jr drive-thru and call it a night.

Oh yeah, I recall Broad Ripple being the artist/hippie district! I think we bought some hair dye at the little goth shop there too. Seems like a nice place to grow up.

I still have an original QuickSilver brochure this company sent me as a kid. I also have a few other oddball brochures like the last edition Lagonda and another from a custom limo company that did everything from Jeep Grand Wagoneers to Maserati BiTurbos.

Yes, as I recall is was near the circle in the main part of downtown. I did get a chance to walk the canal maybe a decade ago, all the way from the zoo to where it ended (at the time) by the USS Indianapolis monument. That, and the nature trail they added over by the Art Museum really spruced up the joint. lol My Read more

Wow, I’ve been to this place on one of my many visits to Indy. I am obsessed with the lemon poppy cake w sour cream icing. I still tell people to ths day how the sandwiches are bigger than anything you’ll get at a Jewish Deli anywhere outside of Manhattan. Man you’ve got me daydreaming about being in Indianapolis in Read more

If you ever get the chance to drive a Toyota version it’s like night and day. I call the LX 470 the W140 of SUVs.

LX 470 is the correct answer here. To paraphrase a popular saying, the Disco will get him to the mountains but the LX will also get him back home.

How long ago did you buy your Cruiser? I looked at most of them in town a few weeks back helping a buddy get one since he liked my LX so much. Ended up with a silver 2000 MY Cruiser, but second consideration was the black ‘06 or ‘07 that Jordan motors had.

I literally just wrote the same thing before I saw your comment. LX 470 is the best bargain out there for a massively capable 4x4. Like most people I wanted the Toyota but for the savings and upgrades you get for less money I was sold.

Totally in agreement on this. LX 470 (100-series) can be had in this price range as they command slightly less than their Toyota LC brothers. I picked up an ‘04 w 250k miles for $10k two summers ago and still looks and runs like a new vehicle.

The Land Cruiser gets worse fuel economy on longer trips? That doesn’t add up. My LX470 (sister rig to this Toyota) gets 12mpg in town and up to 17mpg on the open road. I get that it might be louder, so sell it and buy an LX like mine as they cost less than the Land Cruiser but have far more sound deadening, thicker Read more

I have found that it is easier if you keep the login info on your password manager, on my MacBook anyway. Hope that gives some relief.

Agreed. “Gently used” Mercedes are priced like the DVDs in the giant bin at the local truck stop.
