If Gary built 2 winning 60's they must have been seriously sweet rigs!
Gives me some hope.

I really need to write up a bio and get the back story about my 60 out there. the short version is..... I learned how to drive in this TLC.

Thanks Ige! Just in case you don't remember me I was camped next to Beno and Spressomon at SRC in 2009.

One was an FJ62 that had a big block merc V8 he called the mercruiser. The install was so clean it looked like it came from the factory like that. The other was a cherry high-roof HZJ61 he had installed Toyota cable lockers in. Both wagons were sprung over on ~35 or 36s IIRC.

Thanks, super nice Rigs!

Looks like some big shoes to fill, and who would vote for someone who would re-paint their cruiser brown..... twice.

Why can't we change this title to the nicest Toyota 4x4 Award. I feel left out.

Nicest Vintage Rig

Sickest Rig

Great Trail Leader

Cruise Moab MVP

Eightball Award
