$12,500 Almost Defender: 1978 Land Rover 109 Santana

We're fans of the vehicles that the boys at Valencia Classic Vehicles import and based on their eBay account, it looks like they just had a ship come in - literally. They have a wide array of Spanish Santana's to choose from but this scruffy 109 driver caught our eye.

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff: 1994 530i 5-Speed Wagon

April 13, 2017 bmw, wagon, 5-speed

If we're being picky, there are lots of red flags here. 215,000 miles, rust bubbles, plenty of overspray from a "four stage paint job" that photos seem to show was applied in a warehouse. We could go on, but it's a 5-speed V8 BMW wagon. We're happy to at least pretend those red flags don't exist for a bit.

High Miles & Low Price: 2004 VW R32

February 08, 2017 vw, r32, gti

We remember when the R32 came out in Europe and eventually made its way to the US a few years later. With AWD, and the VR6 it was our dream VW made real. At the time the near $30,000 sticker price was a bit of a deal breaker for us, not to mention the fact that the allotment of 5,000 vehicles sold out extremely quickly. 13 years and 400,000 miles later, this R32 has has lost about 80% of it's retail price but our interest remains at 110%.

If Trucks Could Talk: 1981 Toyota Land Cruiser Diesel

October 16, 2016 toyota, diesel, 60

This 1981 Land Cruiser seems to have lived an interesting life during which it picked up some unique paint, a plate-steel bumper that looks to weigh upwards of 500 pounds, and most interestingly a homemade turbo setup. We imagine that it started its life on the North side of the border but it has migrated slightly south and now finds itself for sale in Portland, Oregon.

Hard Miles: 1972 BMW 2002

May 31, 2016 bmw, 2002, runner

This 1972 BMW 2002 is beyond rough around the edges, but it's described in no uncertain terms as a runner. It has been kicking around eBay for a few weeks now, and we're tempted to see how flexible the seller is on price.

No Top Required: 1967 Nissan Patrol

July 01, 2016 nissan, patrol, 4x4

It's no secret that our preference for Japanese 4WD vehicles tends toward Toyotas, but this Patrol caught our eye. With the hardtop, the Patrol always struck us as somehow awkward, but in open-air mode this little 4-wheeler suddenly looks like a perfect summer / beach vehicle.

Right-Level Resto Mod: 1971 Toyota FJ40

We like everything about this FJ resto mod: from the PPG paint to the 3.9 liter Cummins diesel and everything in between. It looks like an incredibly solid build while not being over the top or too nice to use. No doubt this rig is beyond our budget, but we like its usability and stock look over some other "iconic" vehicles.

Last of the 40's - 1983 Toyota FJ40

March 08, 2016 toyota, 4x4, FJ40

We can't believe that we haven't featured an FJ40 on Moto Roster yet, so let's fix that with one of the rarest around. Opinions differ about the exact number, but in 1983 there were only a handful of FJ40's sold in the US. This one with factory power steering and AC makes it one of the rarest around, and a quality soda blast and respray may push it into ridiculous money.

Friday Garage Builder: 3 Quick Takes

A German, a British ex-pat, and a Colombian all walk into a bar. It's not the setup for the world's most obtuse joke, just a description of the 3 cars in today's Friday Garage Builder. Today we have a high mileage 944S2 for low money, a sweet Land Rover Santana, and to mix things up a bit, a guy in Columbia handmaking aluminum shells inspired by Porsche 550s.

Perfect Spanish Storm: 1983 Land Rover Santana

February 21, 2016 4x4, santana, land rover

We featured another Spanish import from Valencia Classic Vehicles last week and mentioned that we were initially drawn to a different truck that had already found a buyer. That guy backed out, but his loss could be your gain. 4 doors, seating for 9, a turbo on the diesel, and LHD add up to a perfect Rover in our book. Add to that Warwick Green with Alaskan White paint and a through refreshing and we're trying to figure out how to make room in our garage for this rig.
