Hi Greg, I live in Iowa City, but I currently began tracking down my old FJ60 I owned in college. It lives in Waukee or Johnston. I currently have been able to get my contact info to the owner via a carfax that showed where it was serviced. I was hoping to talk to him though Didnt know if by chance you see a steel blue 1987 FJ60 ever in your neck of the woods or potentially know the owner? Anyway Thanks JBGreg Overton
OK this is my installment. I'm Greg Overton. I live in Johnston, IA (burb of Des Moines) with my wife and three kids who have grown up in FJ40's. I'm not much into hard core wheeling because all the Land Cruisers I've had are so damned nice I would feel like crap if I screwed them up. Plus, I'm not a great driver when it comes to hard trails. I would prefer to drive an old logging road accross a few shallow streams to a favorite fishing hole!
My passion with Land Cruiser's and FJ40's in particular is restoring these vehicles to their original condition. My quest is for the perfect late model FJ40 with A/C and Power Steering that is totally stock down to the Dunlop Snow Cruisers. I've seen and owned some pretty amazing rigs but as time goes on they continue to get harder and harder to find and more and more expensive. I actually just inpected and drove a 1980 White FJ40 with 6,500 original miles. The owner wanted $60,000 for the Cruiser. The Cruiser still smelled new inside! I've owned about 50 vehicles in the last 10 years and continue to hang on to the first FJ40 I ever bought. A 1978 Smurf Blue Cruiser with Saginaw PS. I bought it in Cheyenne WY in 1995 from an elderly couple named Getrude and Ollie. I have a website you can visit here:
