My first FJ! 2007 black cherry

After a long search and lots of consultation in these forums, I finally found my FJ 🙂 She’s a 2007 black cherry with 4WD, and was babied by an elderly gentleman who only drove it to the golf course and back — under 50k miles and in amazing shape! I found her on Autotrader.com in Ridgway, CO, and got a good deal because his granddaughter goes to the same art school I did 🙂
The radiator had been sitting with fluid so it had slight seepage. He took $500 off the price and I drove to Albuquerque and had it replaced. Just made it to Austin today. First date... 1000 miles. First windshield star on my way too, damnit. Read all about it and gonna call insurance about glass deductible. Tomorrow I’ll get an oil change and have the fluids topped off before heading home to New Orleans! Considering Zietbart since the undercarriage is still pristine...

So thrilled with my new baby!

Congrats on a nice FJ find. Hopefully you'll have many years of enjoyment from it. I've had good luck with having stone chip repairs made on windshields to keep cracks from spreading and reducing the visibility of the ding.

Congrats. Black Cherry is rather rare. It seems that you passed though my stompin' grounds.
