Hi all,

I decided to quit creeping and just log in already!

I'm Karl.
I'm a bit of a purist. I drive a lightly modified 1972 FJ40 which I've fought to keep on the road as a daily driver since 2006.
Pics will follow shortly...

Edit: As she sits now. Up on a fire road, North of Terrace BC.

It's a keeper with no plans on selling.
I also have an fj45 I'll be bringing to Calgary hopefully soon this year.

I never did formally introduce myself. I am Kevin, I live in Calgary but lurk on these Northern club forums because we don't have one. I have had an FJ45 to BJ45 conversion going for what seems like ten years now (thread in the 45 section). I got tired of watching instead of driving so about 18 months ago I picked up a BJ42 from Vancouver Island and cut all the rust out (there is a thread in the diesel section). Put 22,000km on her last summer and 6000 so far this summer. She is turbo charged, has an Aussie locker in back and an ARB in front, twin ARB 24V compressor, National Luna weekender 50 fridge and freezer and I made a matching M101A trailer to carry the tent. I work in CNC sheet metal manufacturing (think Laser cutting and CNC bending machines).

Pic of the 45 is when I got her home many moons ago.

I'm Jason. Have been rolling in this HJ-61 going on 6 years now. Trying to keep up on maintenance as its my DD. Slowly adding mods as funds permit. This has been a great club to learn wheeling and wrenching with!

Byron here in Edmonton. Picked up a 96 80 series. Triple locked. Just working on refinishing the rusty ARB bumper then on to a knuckle rebuild. Will be adding a 4 inch Slee lift and rear bumper soon.

T Bar! Insurance co. said my 61 is a "possible write off", but I'm going to TBar before I answer the phone from them!!!

Someone drove into the left front door and quarter panel as I passed by them. They were stopped in a line of traffic waiting for a vehicle to turn left. About $2500 damage to each vehicle. Mine is just 2 dents but the insurance companies book value of an 88 cruiser isn't very high. Would not want to lose the 12HT to the scrap yard though! And considering I have the body parts in my yard already.

Let 'em write it off and then do a buy back. Not sure if insurance companies still do that, but back when I had my one and only write off, the insurance company offered it back to me first.

So now I feel like an idiot. I completely missed this sticky and started a new thread to introduce myself. Anyways I am Terry, I don’t have a land Cruiser yet, just my Chevy. I am on the lookout for a good Cruiser and I hope to purchase one within the next few months.


Anyway I can not upload a picture of my truck as I have not made enough posts yet, not that you guys are interested in an old Chevy.

Seems like this group is pretty active, which is cool so I'll do an intro. I'm 24 years old, but I've owned four 60 series Land Cruiser's and currently drive an LX450 80 series, a 1UZ powered AE86 Corolla and an originally owned BJ60 I purchased from my father. Plans for the 80 would be a OME, 35''s, bumpers, and maybe even a RTT.







My old BJ60. Do I ever miss it.
