Hi guys,

I had a great time on Saturday and look forward to the next adventure. I should have the photos and video up on PhotoBucket from the trip tomorrow.

I made it to TN on Sunday to bring Rice's former '77 mostly stock FJ40 back to the Carolinas. We had a great (and thankfully uneventful) drive down Hwy. 321 through the mountains from TN and into Boone before eventually making it to Tega Cay.

Here are some unedited photos taken at the seller's house and a link to more on Picassa. I look forward to showing her off in person at our next gathering.

That truck looks really nice...just like a year ago when Rice sold it :).

Congrats, I'm sure you'll enjoy it for many years!

Here's mine the day I brought it home:

That's a really nice looking 40 you've got there FJinTegaCay. What are your plans for it? Keeping it stockish?

I looked at that truck with J when Rice was selling it. It killed me to see a truck of that nice less than 2 miles from my front door and not have the money to buy it myself. One of the nicest unmolested 40's I have personally seen. Great score!

Somehow I don't think you would be able to keep it off of the trails. :grinpimp:

Very very nice David, and it was great to meet you at URE! I too want to see it in person, that is a classic to be unmolested and in such great shape.
