Re: Vintage Cruisers
When I was in college I had a 1984 Mitsubishi Montero and made a friend who had a 1978 (If I remember right) FJ40 with ambulance doors. It was blue, had the cylinder head gasket problem fixed and was a little rough if I'm honest. We would hit some trails every other weekend and I was always amazed at what that 40 was capable of. It was blue and white and when the FJC was released I was bound and determined to get a voodoo blue, manual (because auto's are for old men. now that i'm an old man....) and eventually chop the top.
Reading about the original FJ's and seeing the photos is really great! They've brought back some fun memories. Thanks for posting!
What doesn't kill me makes me more cynical.
