    Anyone know of any celeberties that are avid cruiser fans (40/60 series)? I don't know why I ask, maybe just to see if there are any out there.

    I remember Bruce Loewen saying that Randy Bachman (BTO--of taking care of business fame) drives a 60.

    So of course driving one makes him an avid cruiser fan then right?

    Okay, maybe he's not a celebrity per se, but Tokyo designer/DJ/producer Bathing Ape (aka Bape/Bape Star/Bapesta) has a couple of Cruisers in his Tokyo Bachelor Garage, which is basically a parking structure with stalls, doors and a security system, with an apartment/office complex on the top floors.

    According to a 2000 interview on Salon.com, Judd Nelson drives a Cruiser:

    Salon: What's a splurge for you?

    Judd "Nostrils" Nelson: I bought an old Toyota Land Cruiser and I put in a new engine. I like the way the old Toyotas look.

    Salon: Whatever. Talk about the cocaine.

    Not long ago, someone had a 40 posted for sale on Mud that was previously owned by Barry Gibb, of Bee Gees fame. Looked like a pretty good resto, too.

    Not a fan, just remember the post. :cool:

    I'm trying to see if any are actually TLCA members or supporters of cruisers,but i guess "just drivers" will do.

    I'd love to see this.

    BTW Peanut from 311 and this super hot pro snowboard chick both drive cruisers but I think they are 80s.

    i don't think the 80/100/lexus celebs count since they are driving them just like they would a ford expedition.

    Leslie Bibb, from the short lived TV show "Popular" drives an FJ60. She was also on an Adam Sandler movie recently as a hot mom. Anyway, Google images her, she's hot plus she drives a cruiser.

    I once read that Kevin Johnson of the PHX Suns had a 40 resto'd for him. He wanted one from the year of his birth. Don't know if this is true, but . . . I don't really care.

    Robin Williams. Supposedly the late Butch Lewis red FJ40 once belonged to Robin and when he saw what Butch did to it , he wanted to buy it back. I know Robin has owned an 80 series, currently owns a 100 series, Prius, Volvo XC90. When you drive by his house on the Seacliff district of SF they are parked right in front of his house.

    Randy was actually driving an 80 last I saw him and claimed to be looking for a nice 40 series for his kid. We both used to end up at the ABC restaurant on Ho Chi Minh trail in Richmond BC for breakfast now and again when I used to live there.

    The lead singer for Smashmouth has a restored 40. At least he used to. Rolling Stone article like 8 years ago he talked about it. Something like "i like to escape my one hit wonder status by going into the garage and restoring my old Toyota FJ40, then rolling down the PCH listening to good music with the top off"
