I love my Daihatsu... People still question the toyota badges.

At least he is staying Japanese. and toyota did own some of them or partnered with them for a while.

I was all set to join you but my nephew (just back from Iraq) and his family visited for lunch and I wanted not to miss out on a fairly rare family gathering. Great pictures - please schedule another 40-series run next year!

It is really cool seeing all those 40's on the trail. You guys should do at least two annual runs per year, just set it up and let em come. That's funny seeing 2 non 40 rigs pull up the rear. Even saw them on C..4x4.org with another group that passed you. More will join in the future just to be with all those classic Land Cruiser's. But you guys need some more challenge next time. I've seen those things do some serious wheelin in near stock form in conjunction with driver skill. Looks like a lot of fun.

My 40 has scared and surprised me with what it can do on 31s with a rear locker. Spring Creek, Poughkeepsie, all the steeps on Fins and Things, Chinaman's, Hells Revenge...but it was fun because some of these back roads get missed for harder stuff sometimes - plus it was fun seeing Wes' '64 rolling along

Not to worry, the second annual 40's Only Run will be bigger, better and more challenging. And I'm sure Wes piloting his '64 won't have any trouble since he can probably outwheel all of us.

I'm still confused about the runner and yeep that showed up.

Yeah, they split off and did Yankee Hill by themselves even though we were not too far behind them?
