On The Go Outtake: Vintage Toyota Pickup Hauling Somewhat Less-Vintage TV

CC 296 071 1300

The number of these gen2 Toyota HiLux pickups on the road is fading, albeit ever so slowly, although they’re far from an uncommon sight here. Well, they are forty-some years old, but they’re Toyotas, so my somewhat paradoxical statement is a bit understandable.

But when I saw this one hauling a big CRT TV, presumably to an electronic recycling facility, I couldn’t resist. Those big tvs were so damn heavy; I’m glad to never have to lift one again. But the old Toyota seems to be holding up to its load of lead-coated glass.
