Big announcement for the FJ Summit!!

I'm putting this here for now, because I wanted everyone to see it. This year we are going to have some very special guests at the fj summit and we've been working on a particular gentleman for a while now, and it is finally official.

Mr. Akio Nishimura - Chief Engineer FJ Cruiser, Tacoma, and 4Runner from Toyota Japan will be attending the FJ Summit this year! He has been the Chief Engineer of the FJ since it's first running, so I have a hunch he knows a thing or two about your favorite vehicle.

With him will be coming some other special folks from Toyota besides Frank Bonnett from TRD who's come the last two years, so this looks like it is going to be an exciting event this go around.

Anyway, more details will follow, and most likely I'll move this thread into the FJ Summit 2010 section when I have things to add.

Stay tuned.

-Jared

RIP Mike "Shadow Warrior" you were good man and a good friend to us all!

Re: Big announcement for the FJ Summit!!

Of course the year that I do not go he will be there. He is a good guy to talk to though. I have had the chance to talk to him during the launch of the Tacoma at the Texas plant. I wanted to ask him more questions about the FJ but we had too much going on at the time.

Re: Big announcement for the FJ Summit!!

Maybe someone can pry some info out of him, like, when is the diesel option coming?

Sounds very cool, wish I could be there to meet him! Congrats on getting him there, he's gonna love seeing the mountain trails around Ouray (if he hasn't been there before). And, what better way to see his creations in their natural element!
