Land Cruiser Heritage Museum in Salt Lake City

Here's a hidden gem, just 10 minutes from the airport. There are 75 cars in the collection, along with lots of toys, literature, and random memorabilia. A lot of money and expertise went into the display.

The museum was in a warehouse district. There is no signage outside and I almost passed it twice.

This is the predecessor to the Land Cruiser, the Toyota Jeep. This was found in Adelaide and there are only about a half dozen survivors left in the world.

This is the dash of the Japanese Self-Defense Force Mega Cruiser.

I want the white civilian version of the Mega Cruiser so badly!

This Hilux has been to all seven continents.

I just learned about these Blizzards, which were built by Daihatsu. There's even a Bertone version with a BMW engine.

I think these are the internals of a Lexus LX450.

Underneath the Mega Cruiser.

Here's that Hilux again. The metal tubing beneath the doors comes off and can be hooked up front to become a crane for glacier crevasse rescues.

The miscellaneous corner.

This sled can pull a 150-gallon fuel bladder.
