    So after lots of looking and lots of reading on here I finally got myself a 1974 FJ40.
    She needs a little love and attention but, so do I.
    I am going to pick her up next weekend but I will attach a few pics for now.
    And the best part is my girlfriend help pay for some of it. Does she know she just financed her replacement? I think not!

    Nice truck. Is that the one just outside Rochester? Are you in the western NY area? If so, we have a small Cruiser club here. PM for info.

    Holy cow. What a woman! I hope she does not run it off a cliff or burn it up if things go south. Good luck man!

    I wish I'd kept mine blue... I'll change it back oneday perhaps... oh and welcome! :flipoff2:
