Matt,

Hi! I'm an automotive journalist who is working on a TV pilot to go with my
magazine and web writing. I've got an FJ Cruiser press vehicle available
for the show's offroad segment, and thought it would be cool to try to film
it out with an original FJ club.

Would you folks be interested, or--if not--any suggestions?

Thanks!

When? There are any number of things we could do.

Hereís the scoop: weíre shooting footage for a car/travel show, Nice Drives. It will have a 4wd segment, and I thought that with the interest the FJ has garnered, it would be fun to use it.

Also, since thereís such a strong core of supporters of the older FJs (I remember driving my dadís Ď65 FJ on the farm myself), I wanted to try to tie-in shooting the footage of the new one off road with some type of club trip.

I drove it last year for a day on trails outside of Palm Springs, and it looks like, box-stock, it could handle some light-medium off roading. The press car up here is an automatic, so itís low range isnt nearly as short as the manual. Iíd say therefore that medium trails would be best.

Iím waiting on a scheduling confirmation, but it looks like the weekend of the 20th would be best.

Thanks,

Isaac

Going to try and set up dates for the first Argentine Pass clean up day for June. June 10th is Big Head Todd and the weekend of the 26th the family is getting to gether to do some cleanup around Colrado Springs.. Maybe the weekend before on that Sunday?? Would that be something he is interested in??

Seems like that would be a conflict, since that's the weekend of the annual Father's Day Run, on Sunday, June 18. It's already on our calendar (http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/forum2/calendar.php?).

Skip BHT -- you've seen them before anyway. :D
