Took a quick photo of this Toyota Land Cruiser FZJ80 while I was at Surf N Turf at Oceano Dunes near Pismo Beach, California. This model of the Land Cruiser was the last to have solid axles in the United States. It also was the beginning of the more luxurious Toyota SUV we see in the Land Cruiser today.
The Land Cruiser pictured here is more rough than luxurious though. The bumper is the popular ARB bumper and the roof rack appears to be of the same company. Where the grill went off to is a mystery to me.
Really excited about this new FJ Cruiser t-shirt concept I came up with. I’m fortunate enough to have talented people available to work with me when I have an idea I need to come to life. My artist buddy is working on it right now. I’m hoping to get this out before Halloween.
AUTOArt FJ Cruisers were introduced the first year the Toyota FJ Cruiser was released for sale. These are the most accurate models available for the public in generous 1/18th scale. They can be found on Ebay auctions for about $75 and up.
I’ve been configuring the WordPress site to my liking although I haven’t found a WP theme I particularly want to use. I added a new top banner graphic from my collection after a little filtering in Photoshop. I love how photography on a website immediately takes over the look and feel of a template used by millions of other people.
As I develop the FJ Gear site, I realize the potential the website has to support the Toyota off-road community. In the past I have produced videos for my other interest. I would love to produce interview videos of owners and manufacturers. There are a handful of shop owners in the Los Angeles area I could possibly approach as well.
