    You could go to Vegas in November to see the new FJ Cruiser in person at the SEMA show and attend a Toyota-hosted party on the Strip. SEMA is the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world. Not open to the public, this event showcases the latest and greatest in after-market automotive accessories, performance and customization.





    We know you're waiting for the all-new FJ Cruiser -- a true off-roading vehicle with the strong heritage of the FJ40. In the meantime, we want to know a little more about the kind of people who are interested in the FJ Cruiser -- that's you!

    Answer a few brief questions about yourself and you'll be entered for a chance to go to Las Vegas, November 1-6, and attend SEMA.

    6-day trip for two to Vegas including:
    Round-trip airfare
    Five nights' hotel accommodations
    Ground transportation to/from airport
    Exclusive access to SEMA
    See FJ Cruiser in person
    VIP access to a party hosted by Toyota
    $1000 Spending money
    Just answer a few questions and you could be on your way to Las Vegas to attend SEMA 2005.
