Don Davis's 1966 FJ40 Land Cruiser.

A few months ago, Don Davis, a wealthy business man from Texas, put up 25 of his 30 cars for auction through the World renowned RM Auctions.

The main reason for posting this is because every second person I meet these days has a Cruiser (or Hilux) so I thought some would appreciate (or gasp) at this.

This is Davis's mint-condition 1966 FJ40 Land Cruiser and for anyone who has one rusting away in the back shed, this one went for US$88,000.

Some of the other cars that went at the auction, pocketing Davis US$21.2million, are this 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS which sold for US$1,936,000.

And with Toyota being the name of the day, here is the 1967 2000GT which sold for US$1,237,000.

1954 Chrysler GS-1 Special sold for US$616,000

1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III Drop Head Coupe by Mulliner Park Ward sold for US$577,500.

This Mercedes-Benz 1955 300SL "Gullwing" sold for US$1,550,000.

1961 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster sold for US$935,000
