We had an impromptu little gathering, guest of honor was a 1970 FJ55. The partygoers descended like vultures, or swarmed like pirahnas (you know, the hungry little amazonian fishes).
Here's the "before" pictures:

Oh, the subject is the blue-and-white '55. The short blue-and-white '55 with one red fender.

Just wondering why you decided to chew it up instead of returning it to its road worthy glory? It didnt look to bad in that first pic.

Well, that is a good question Clemson, fortunately not my decision...
for we all know that is the hardest call for any Pig-lover to make.
But Ron needed the tailgate, rear quarters and door sills to repair his Pig, 55guy needed the door post, Bob needed the roof and I'll pick up just about anything left over.
Geographic/cultural differences also apply. Sure, this Pig didn't look too bad to you, but I've seen some of the Pigs bought and sold as runners back east...

Yeah it looked pretty good to me. But I could have stuck my head through the floorboards of mine when I bought it. At least pieces of it will live on. What are you going to do with the rest of it. Looks like theres still some good engine parts and stuff there.

I'm going to travel out and visit it (100 miles or so from me) next weekend for the springs, chunks, rear axle shafts and any little bits and pieces I've forgotten.
Sure, it's got a complete early F. But it doesn't have anything I don't already have 2 or 3 of...except the holley carb, and I've got no use for that.
