    This has become a cult classic LC photo. I have seen it in many places and always wonderd what the story is behind it. What's with the sculpture? What is it, Who did it? Where is the photo taken? Who's that hottie and is she wearing underware? Who's 55 is that? Where had they been or where were they going?

    Who knows the details behind this picture? Lets hear about it? :popcorn:

    I believe Luke Wilson of 4x4 Labs is responsible for the photo...

    I believe that the 55 in the picture is toast. IIRC, it went up in flames awhile back in a wreck and the rest is history.

    Found at birfield.com

    This is the Sand Spider aptly named by my friend Didi while on a Death Valley wheeling adventure. It is a '76 FJ55 convertible, spring over with custom built rancho leaves, 12" lift total with 35" yokohama superdigger IV's on 12" rims. The engine/drivetrain is stock. Interior has a custom made rollcage and a stereo system with 12 speakers and 790 watts as well as a Cobra CB radio. This picture was taken at Burning Man '97 in the Black Rock desert in Northern Nevada. The trailer is a 1965 Landcruiser FJ20 (FJ40 cut in half). It sports a 25 gal. Extra fuel tank 35" Mud TA's and various other goodies like a 45 gallon cooler full of beer for those way out trips to the desert. The week before this trip I took her through the Rubicon trail without the trailer. Please pay homage as she was hit by a semi truck last week and totalled. I'm putting this pic up in honor...sorry Didi lukanius@unimog.com

    This occurred quite a few years ago, but it's hard to keep a good rig down.
