    Almost newbie introduction…

    I’ve read some of these forums (40, 60, 80, etc.) for a while know and even posted some messages but since I never formally introduce myself to you all, I guess lack of responses is the way to say “who are you and what are you doing here?....one of those unwritten rules… that’s ok, I apologize for being rude.

    About me, I’m just another Land Cruiser fan who has owned a couple of them (40s, 45s and 60s) over the years here in the US and abroad. Currently, I have an ‘87 FJ60 that just gave me a surprise yesterday when starting it up… the biggest cloud of smoke you could imagine… neighbors half a block away came out to see what was happening… I think is the head gasket…

    anyhooo, I was thinking about selling the 60 and getting into an 80 and this happens…

    Well, I do have too many things to take care these days and I don’t want to deal with this new “to do” thing. I know that at this point this is starting to sound more like a sale than anything so I will end it thanking and congratulating everybody for this quality community and saying that there’s a FJ60 available almost for free in the for sale wanted section

    Thanks guys... hawk, even though it's almost free, I only got two requests... I guess people think it's a piece of junk, but it isn't... maybe pictures will help... I just have to figure out how to post them
