I am thinking that would be Clarkston, WA which coincidentally is just across the border from Lewiston, ID... Get it? Lewis(ton) and Clark(ston)! ;)

Well I'm in WA...........but on the otherside of the state in Gig Harbor(other side of the bridge from Tacoma)

BTW Gig Harbor has the highest per capita Cruiser ownership this side of someplace in Oz......must be a few hundered of them in town, from fj25's-UZJ100's(most be 50+ of them alone)

Landpimp, not fair, Gig Harbor is a small town and half the cruisers are yours. :D

true its a small town, I think within the city limits its pop is 3000, the outlying area maybe 20,000. But that just it, its a small town and has tons of Cruisers. On my street there are my 10, plus 7 others(80's and 100's) this is within 1/2 mile. I think in the 2 high schools there are almost a dozen kids with Cruisers(mostly 60/2 that were the folks old rigs and a few 40's, I know 2 16-17 year old kids with sweet 40's)

Untill a few years ago(when I got it) there was local pastor that drove a oine stock 65 fj40 everyday.....sometimes over to Eastern WA, the 40 was owned by the church(in EW) sense new......always thought it was pretty cool :)

Not 1/2 dude - all. Didn't you know that Pimp struck a deal with the cruiserkarmadude. Eventually every cruiser ever made, regardless of where, will rest on his property. Unfortunately, he will never have a garage though. :flipoff2:

My 80 was in Clarkston while I was there for a job interview. It's now back home in Boise with me.

Maybe you can tell me why the population of Lewiston is much higher than Clarkston. No one there could tell me why. It's got to be a tax thing.

Where did you find that John? Did you buy it? Is it for sale? How much? Doesn't look like it's very rotten compared to others I have seen.

hehehehehehe.....there are more, guy that has it has another 45sw, and a few pick ups, if I told ya where(and I'm not gonna ;) I would have to kill you :D

I need to look at the other 45 sw he has, I have a feeling both will be needed to make one. This one is roted in the rockers, 1/4 panels, tailgate, but doors are good, taillights there. Also no glass, but the floors look good. I only looked at it for a min.....its parked in a "no mans land" in a gang area, not at the owners house. Price, I think last he mentioned a couple hundred.....might have been for both.

this is how it looked last fall.....all you could see

Carefull Pimp. Last I heard that have been some recent sitings of an angry short fat man lurking in your area. He smells a little, from lack of both shower and bodily function control. He is evil - beware, and when investigators searched his residence, they found coat hangers and topo maps of your area. Last seen drinking diet cokes. :flipoff2:
