Probably because they aren't today's modern crappy FWD crossovers?
There is a guy near here that rebuilds and sells old Wagoneer Jeeps for HUGE money... and we all know what a vintage Land Cruiser will bring!
Save you the hassle, since I've seen this already on YT as I subscribed to DDM
Again, not surprised, America has always been fond of bigger vehicles...when gas prices are low, we will always want them. Toyota's trucks and SUVs really retain their value well, even better than the cars.
The video is actually more about nostalgia, and simplicity - being connected with the vehicle/road and able to just load up and go where you wanted - instead of the technology packed vehicles of today. It presents 2 nearly "perfect" examples.Didn't watch the video but I'd imagine Cash For Clunkers, paired with low interest rates and high fuel prices killed a lot of these. Along with rust. Even though the Wagoneer was long gone from the Jeep lineup when I was growing up you still saw a fair amount of them. Now I've seen one or two in the last year. I'd love to have one or an old Land Cruiser though but the cash people are asking is hard to stomach especially on restored cars. Survivors aren't cheap either. Still a decent amount of Broncos out there but they seem really prone to rotting out. People beat these things to crap back in the day too as they were viewed as just a tool, same for a lot of old trucks.
