"GEOLANDAR" DAKAR RALLY RACE TRUCK

"GEOLANDAR" DAKAR RALLY RACE TRUCK

Los Angeles Convention Center

This rally race vehicle was sponsored by Yokohama Tires and their 'Geolandar' line-up of off-road tires, and 'Osaka Toyopet'; Toyopet is one of Toyota's oldest and largest 'sales channels' in Japan, and apparently the Toyopet dealers in the Osaka, Japan area either supplied the vehicle itself or did so and also added extra monies or parts to the vehicle and its team. Trivia Time: The first Toyota cars sold in America, way back in 1957 in North Hollywood, CA, were sold under the 'Toyopet' name. And yes, there will be a quiz.
