I thought it was a jeep

So i scene what i thought was a jeep so i flipped the hand out the window and gave him a wave. But he looked back at me like i did something wrong. He looked at me like who the hell is that guy and whys he waving at me. So i looked closer and it was a toyota land cruiser. what is that thing i said to myself. I guess those guys dont wave so keep an eye out for these guys.

Interesting... If they are anything like their grand-pappies Land Cruisers from the 70's, they're pretty tough S.O.B.'s

Very interesting....

fj's are are a nice ride. weak link is the barfield(spelling?) axles that can bust, but like jeep there are tons of aftermarket parts for them.

If it was one like in the picture you posted it was built by ICON. They probably didn't wave back because you haven't spent 100,000 on your rig...

Saw one at the Toyota dealer tonight (daily driver in the shop) and it actually caught my eye. Looked rugged enough from a distance.

My dad had one of those back in the day, dual fuel pumps, chevy 352 block, nice tires, it was a '60-'70 year. FJ's back then look so much better than the current ones..

Hah, I did the same thing the other day!
If you just give it a glance, it kinda looks like a Jeep with mods.
But, I decided he's running with the top off, just like me, why not wave?

Richard Hammond drove one time on top gear in an endurance race through africa to the equator And then to the highest point in the world. It kept falling apart and at the end it wound up rolled over because he parked it on a steep hill with no real brakes. Ofcourse he only paid 1500 for it

I dig the cruisers. The fj40s are sweet, but can get pricey fast. A fully restored one can easily fetch 20 grand. I think the fj60s are sweet too (a friend of mine has an 84), but I think the coolest looking cruisers are the FJ55, aka Iron Pig. I almost bought an 04 land cruiser with all the bells & whistles, but went with a Wrangler instead. The grocery getter can wait till another day.

Early 60's era. They were very rugged, but very slow. An engine very similar to the Chevy Stovebolt 6, a 3 speed tranny, a strong T-case. The axles were fairly weak.
The trick set-up was a Chevy 327 or 350 - it was an easy swap. That made it fairly hot.
Good in rocks, too heavy for sand.
The competitor at the time was the Nissan Patrol. This was still when the cars were called Datsuns.
I converted 4 or 5 of those old Toyota Land Cruisers to Chevy's for friends.

At that time Nissan was remembered as making Jap tanks in WWII.
Toyota was famous for pianos and bombsights.

I think they stopped importing them in the late 60's, but they were still sold in other countries for a few years.

I think new they ran about $2500.

I like them Fj40 the original Landcruiser. The FJ Cruiser was supposed to be a link the past for Toyota because current Land Cruisers have gotten so large, comfortable and expensive.

I have a friend that has 3. one is apparently pretty rare, its a pickup.

Freaking sweet rides IMO...he has tons of money in them (all three are fully restored to OEM spec)

several around here, sorry but I love them and would take one in a heart beat, been told you can't really kill them or get them stuck, I think they are cool because typically the back seats were a pair of fold down jump seats
