    I'm old enough to remember the 80's as an adult. But I'm curious to know how many of you Cruiser Heads hanging out on this forum are younger than the Cruisers you are driving around!

    Born in '79...just old enough, at 10, to really get pissed off at my parents for buying a blazer rather than a cruiser. I did have a '74 40 for a while.

    I am 14 years older then the Rig of Mortis, better looking too...

    ...and even as the R.O.M. is my daily driver, I can't stop staring at it every chance I get.

    I always thought it'd be nice to have a Cruiser born the same year as I was. 1966 is a rare year for 40s though and the right one just hasn't come along yet. Maybe I should settle for an FJ45 wagon.:grinpimp:
