I looked for a spotted thread, but didn't see one. Had new tires put on the 80 today in Sparks, then visited with my grandparents. Spotted a 100 series on my way out of town. first saw it at McCarran/Greg, followed it up over vista overpass where I hit the freeway. White I think?, I'm terrible with remembering color... ARB front, high clearance rear. Looked pretty good.

Weird. I thought I had posted some of the spotto's I have seen. Oh well, there are some...

I didn't see this one in person, but man! That is the perfect example of a bad ass 45!

Spotted this beaut on the I80 East just West of McCarren Blvd. He had a sweet trailer too. His side mirrors were attached to the roll cage.

In to reno for work today, had a call in West Reno up right close to Plumb and Plumas, saw a pretty good looking 60. Grey, maybe blue, small lift, roof rack. Barely caught it as I passed by, and was just barely on time so I couldn't creep on it. Anyone?

I've driven by an old Dolan lot for over year now and finally decided to drop in to get some shots of these two FJ40's. They are in great shape, not perfect, but way better than mine! 🤣

Yeah I have been noticing more and more 80s around lately it seems. May people are starting to pick them up more due to Toyota stopping production of the LC in the US. Or maybe its that overlanding is becoming more prevalent so with our proximity to so much open space we are just seeing more people "invest" in it?!

I've been stalking the guy in the beige tan/coyote brown FJ60. I used to see it parked adjacent to 395 near the AG Inspection Station north of Reno (looked like the driver was part of a construction crew). Then I saw it parked at Pyramid Lake but each time I spotted it I was pressed for time and couldn't stop. I did swing back through Nixon once but he was gone.

It looks like a well prepped 60.

Yup, that's the one.
Ok so he is kind of a neighbor of mine. I dropped one of our cards on his door. He's had it for YEARS, LS1 swap (or LT1 can't remember), big lift and tires. He is an archeologist if I remember correctly so gone for months at a time with it. He must be retired of have switched positions because he has been around a lot since before COVID. Then last year I saw him doing the body work prepping for paint. Love the color, think it is the Toyota sand dune beige you see on the newer Tacos.
