Well, with the poor hunting here and the lack of people worth knowing I figured I needed a project.

Toyotas are a superior product. I have 180,000 on my 1989 Cruiser and no problems whatsoever.

Besides, I wouldn't be so RC-like if I liked Chevys or any other American car for that matter :puke: :lame: :down:

Bring on the flames :sniper:

FJ40s up in the rust belt are very rare. Down here there are more, but still pretty rare. The fact that this is a 1964 makes it a unicorn because the top is different. I have been actively looking for months now and this is the one. It came from New Mexico, hence the good body. I am positively smitten :eek:k:
If it were only as easy as a timing belt, eh Fetch :D I was thinking something more like a frame off restoration. :eek: :eek: :eek:

Boy, the wife had no idea when she said I could get another.

Here are more shots:

Well, she made it home (I hate calling this place home :puke: ) from West Virginia last weekend on a large 2003 F450 diesel rental that broke down on me. Thank goodness I am a mechanical god. I fixed the rental truck and everything was fine after that (and I got my rental for free too!). We have decided to name her Virginia. Here are some photos of her and Betty Sue (my 1989 Land Cruiser). Work has begun on her and I am absolutely smitten :eek:k:

Mr. Langager,

I've lived in NC and I'm wondering how you get away with your life when you bring those rice burners to the gas station down there? Also, the dad-gum-thing musta been owned by sum yankee when it broke down in WV, right? Lord knows no God fearin' W. VA'n would have ever owned a TOYOTA (even if it was up-on-blocks in front of the trailer)! :lol:

Qwack,
When I bring Virginia and Betty Sue to the fillin' station I just tell Bubba and Cletus that they belong to my sister, who I am married to. They just give me a big toothless grin and forget that they were just about to make me squeal like a pig.

You sure are right about West Virtucky though, that place is scary!

Mr. Hustad,
I am doubting that Virginia, Betty Sue, or myself will make it up this fall. However, I wouldn't rule anything out yet!
