    barn find

    As our American brethren would call it, just scored a barn find. ..

    Fj45 land cruiser, with less rust than most


    Amazing machines, hasn't been started in years but the owner (who brought it new in 1974) assured me he drove it to it's current resting place. Cleaned the plugs, a bit of pure down the throat and a pull start had it running, albeit only on a few cylinders. Dragged it home, new set of plugs and apart from a sticky choke cable it ticks over like a Swiss watch. Clearly built back when Toyotas were good. I'm very happy with it

    Here she is, just after giving it a bath. Spent most of the day just cleaning it, inside and out. Took it for a good long run too, runs like it was never out of service

    Even here on Trademe there are a few pricey ones. It wasn't so long ago they were as cheap as chips here in NZ

    Jeez Pointer half your luck mate.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    They are good vehicles.
    Come into their own on the gravel,gearing etc works well then.
    Can wade pretty deep and not much to dry out just drain the water through the floor bungs.
    Have a BJ40 that I have spent a bit on.
