I kinda miss the Nicest Toyota Truck award. Gives some equal time to minis without stealing any limelight from cruisers. Fits with a more inclusive TLCA stance too.

Or how about a "Rusty Iron Butt" award for whoever drives their beat up, old, rusty Toyota the furthest to the event. 1000 miles in a rotted out, manual steering, topless 40 is more "iron butt" than driving 5,000 miles in a plush 80, 100, FJcruiser, etc.

I believe there was more than one video of it. One of the people videoing it was right next to me (I shot the pic posted previously). Haven't seen anything online yet though.

If you look a few posts back, you'll see that we eliminated BOTH the "Nicest Land Cruiser" and "Nicest Toyota Truck" awards. This was for a number of reasons, including trying to determine if we needed an award for "Nicest FJ Cruiser" too (in an effort to be as inclusive as possible). It was a point of contention for years.

Let me be clear: DESPITE THE TITLE OF THIS THREAD, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS THE "NICEST CRUISER AWARD" ANYMORE.

Now we say "Nicest Vintage Rig" (25 years or older), in which Red Chili would be eligible. We also have "Sickest Rig," a category that Red Chili also might do well in.

Thanks for the kind words... but to be honest the Chili is far from the sickest rig, and there are way too many cherry vintage rigs (mostly cruisers come to mind) for the Chili to hold a candle to (not to mention she's not quite of age ). Now if we are talking Gary's awesome (no... FREAKING awesome) FJ45... that's another story entirely!

No doubt. Sure easy to freeze up when the adrenaline boost hits 12lbs.
