Honourary Old Parked Car: 1996 Toyota HiAce Firetruck

One of the owners told me that in Japan there are small fire stations scattered at regular intervals throughout the countryside, each equipped with a small truck like this.

This one came as a fully functioning firetruck, with hoses, clothing, tools, etc however it is now used for hauling building materials, so all that had to be removed. Apparently there are a number of these in the Lower Mainland, and I have seen a few about.

1993 Toyota HiAce Camper

I think that might be a solar panel on the roof.

1982 Toyota Cressida

Points of interest: Odd diagonal grille, single wheel cap still present on those stock mesh wheels despite being on the curb side, pleasant patina scattered about. It has a practical appearance despite it's luxury pretensions. This car really lives in Honda Accord territory.

1988 Toyota 4Runner SR5

What makes this truck particularly interesting is the removable roof. With the roof off (which I have almost never seen)  the entire area behind the front seats is uncovered, which is probably a blast for anyone in the back seat.

Also turns it into a sort of pickup if the rear seats are removed. However one might be concerned that the load could crash into the people in the front seats on a sudden stop.

Toyotas were the among prototypical modern SUVs. A sleek appearance blended with those (unnecessarily) large & aggressive fenders. This truck has few luxuries, maximum utility and reliability.
