There is an insane number of Toyota Land Cruisers in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. It was one of the first things I noticed noticed riding around the city which sounds strange but literally 10% of vehicles in the street are Land Cruisers. I own one back in Colorado, which has a sizeable community itself, so i like to acknowledge one when I see one rolling down the street.
Phnom Penh takes it to a whole other level, so I knew there had to be a special reason, even with the knowledge that LC's are the 2nd and 3rd world's first choice when you absolutely must get there in one piece.
Turns out, a strange thing happened in 1993. Cambodia was in ruins after decades of war and UN Peacekeepers took control of the country to stabilize it and prepare it for its first elections. For the first time ever, Phnom Penh was flooded with money as highly paid UN personnel and contractors roamed the city. The UN vehicle of choice: a white Toyota Land Cruiser. The population began to associate the LC with power and wealth and apparently it continues to be the vehicle of choice for Cambodia's corrupt officials and nouveau riche to this day. I saw several original white models with the UN paint and logos still intact. According to our host, after the UN left and sold the vehicles to the locals, they were never repainted and are particularly rare and sought after.
