I'm gonna say pre-'75 with a Conferr roof rack.

I keep seeing a couple white 80 series with ARB front bumpers, lifted near and along Belleview/Quebec/Orchard area. Haven't been able to tell if it's the same one over and over or different ones. Different people driving them. Also saw one on Belleview near Wadsworth. So maybe that's 3 that are all built very similar.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone ever looked into the red FJ40 at Budget A1 Transmission off of Santa Fe and Dartmouth? I know it was pretty shabby a few years ago, looks like it's been restored, or partially restored, and has since sat outside in the lot for the last few years. I've always been curious, but never stopped in. It may have even had a for sale sign in the window for a bit.

I was at the Broncos game this weekend and saw my dream FJ. Thought I'd share. If this is yours, cheers to a beautiful 40!

I have always wondered about that 40 also.

Spotted Red Chile at the Echo Lake parking area today. Where did you hunt Bill?

This isn't something that I have ever seen before.
I found this in the back yard of a house we were surveying this past week. I thought you guys might want to see it. Talk about a true "land yacht".
This is a 1961 Dodge Polara V8. This thing is HUGE!
