Available for acquisition is my 1977 FJ40.
The body and drive train was removed from the chassis and the bare chassis was media blasted and coated in Imron.
While the chassis was being media blasted the underbody was prepped and coated in bedliner. There was minor rust at
the rear door sill which was cut out and replaced, photo documentation is available. There was no other rust
concerns at all, pre paint photo documentation verifies the remarkable condition prior to restoration. The interior
wears original patina, nothing has been done to hide the amazing condition of the original interior. New shocks,
shackles, and body bushings were introduced at time of reassembly. All spot welds and rivets are easily visible and
compliment the unmolested body. All glass is original TEQ, the windshield has a couple imperfections that do not
obstruct but it is the original glass throughout. The side mirrors are not original, they are European spec sourced
for their aesthetic contribution. Every light works, headlights, signals, marker lights, seat belt light, brake
lights, interior e-brake light, back up lights, fog lights and fog light switch light, gauge cluster, green dash
light and dome light. The only sticker missing from this vehicle is the Unleaded fuel only sticker, I am trying to
source one now.Vintage Air was added and functions as intended. The wheels and tires are not original, the white
wagon wheels and tires are available if desired.

Toyota has announced plans to voluntarily recall 803,000 vehicles from model years 2012 and 2013, over concerns with the air conditioning condenser housing. The recall covers the Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon, Avalon Hybrid and Venza, although the exact split between affected models wasn't available.
According to Toyota, the condenser can leak onto an airbag control module, which in turn could cause a short circuit. In most cases, this will just lead to an airbag warning light, but in rarer instances, the airbags could fail to deploy or pop out of their own accord. There's also a concern over a loss of power steering if the airbag control module develops a short.
It's unclear if there have been any injuries or crashes relating to the defects. Toyota will begin informing owners of affected vehicles via first class mail, and will ask them to report to dealerships for recall work, involving the installation of a cover on the condenser housing.
Toyota has six vehicles that it's bringing to the Specialty
Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show next week, all of which were developed by and for people who live active lifstyles. Four of them are the result of the Toyota Dream Build Challenge, which tasked a team of athletes and vehicle customization shops to build Toyota sedans, pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles in seven weeks that would enhance performance in their respective sports.
We'll lead off with the CamRally Camry, developed by NASCAR driver Parker Kligerman, Kyle Busch Motorsports and Mooresville, NC shop Detroit Speed, Inc. for the Dream Build Challenge, because it appeals to us gearheads (sure, call us one-sided). It was totally transformed into a rally vehicle, and it has to be the most badass Camry we can remember seeing. The sedan is always a bit flaccid-looking in stock form, but the CamRally's wide body and other exterior upgrades and the turbocharger make us forget about that, as do its stripped, painted interior and Sparco race seat.
Nearly every automaker doing business in the SUV or pickup truck segments offers a package designed to improve the off-road capabilities of its wares. But, of course, not all such factory kits are created equal. How, then, to separate the wheat from the chaff? Gather each of them up and put them through their paces, naturally.
The folks from Four Wheeler and PickupTrucks.com joined forces to run just such a comparison test, with the winner named the Ultimate Factory 4x4. A total of seven vehicles showed up to the fight: the 2012 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, 2012 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X and Xterra PRO-4X, 2012 Ram Power Wagon, and 2012 Toyota 4Runner Trail and Tacoma TRD T|X Baja Series.
With the contestants in place, the whole crew put each vehicle through a battery of tests that included skidpad and acceleration measurements, a hillclimb, a rocky stairstep course and a rock garden. Considering the nature of the beasts, on-road ride and comfort were not part of the routine.
