Sixty Years? Yes, the 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Heritage Edition will debut just ahead of the Chicago Auto Show, where it will be shown to the public for the first time. Starting off as a bare-bones, mountain-climbing 4x4 way back when (which the brand has never topped), the Heritage Edition also celebrates the Land Cruiser’s continuous place in Toyota’s U.S. lineup since 1958. The two-row 2020 Land Cruiser Heritage Edition comes in either Midnight Black Metallic or Blizzard Pearl with a black-accented grille and bronze-colored BBS 18 x 8.0-inch forged aluminum wheels featuring a “TOYOTA” center cap. A vintage-style Land Cruiser exterior badge is thrown in for good measure. The running boards and chrome lower body side moldings of the standard Land Cruiser are deleted, while darkened headlight housings, fog lights with dark chrome surrounds and side mirrors with darkened chrome details are included. The Heritage Edition is exclusively outfitted with black leather-trimmed upholstery. The bronze wheel color carries inside for the contrast stitching used throughout the cabin, including the steering wheel, door trim, center stack, console and seats. The Land Cruiser Heritage Edition also comes equipped with all-weather floor mats and cargo liner. It is powered by a 5.7-liter DOHC V8 with 381HP and 401 lb.-ft. of torque. The 8-speed Electronically Controlled Automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) teams with a versatile full-time 4WD system, which uses a TORSEN limited-slip locking center differential and a 2-speed transfer case with selectable low-range. There will be 1,200 Heritage Editions available for the 2020 model year, with units going on sale in late summer of 2019. Pricing will be announced at a later date.

On Saturday, February 23, 2019, the Petersen Automotive Museum will open its newest exhibit featuring ten groundbreaking race cars, each with a unique story of triumph and victory, from the collection of Petersen Founding Chairman Bruce Meyer. Titled “Winning Numbers: The First, The Fastest, The Famous,” the exhibit will include exceptional competitors including Le Mans winners, land speed record setters, dragsters and road racers.
 Visitors of the display will find the winningest Ferrari road racer of all time, the 1957 Ferrari 625/250 Testa Rossa (above), which claimed first prize in more than half of the 50 races in which it was entered; the first production 1962 Shelby Cobra, CSX2001; the 1962 Greer Black Prudhomme, which was raced by drag racing legend Don Prudhomme who won 237 of the 241 races in which he piloted the car; the renowned 1952 So-Cal Speed Shop Belly Tank Racer, which was fashioned from a P-38 Lightning fighter belly tank from World War II by hot rod racing icon Alex Xydias; the 1979 Kremer Porsche 935 K3 that took first place overall at Le Mans; and the 1929 Ford “747” Bonneville Racer that Meyer ran 204 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats. “Winning Numbers” will run through January 19, 2020. Keeping with tradition, the exhibit will be preceded by an opening reception featuring gourmet food and a fireside chat session hosted by Meyer himself. The exhibit represents the first installment of the three-part “California Collecting” exhibit series, which will focus on three prominent collections belonging to the region’s most revered enthusiasts.
