Default A new 40 at our house

As some of you know, Madeline my daughter has taken an increasing interest in Land Cruisers and is suprisingly engaged when I am in the garage working on my 60. I've also noticed a trend among 60 owners moving to 40s: Marco's recent purchase, Martin's 40 taking priority and actually selling his 60 .

Today is Madeline's 3rd birthday and well, I found a beautiful blue 40--almost as nice a paint job as Ricardo's, so I pulled the trigger. I was pleasantly surprised to see how excited she was about her new rig and after all the presents were opened, her new 40 made it into the new babydoll crib, right next to the baby's head.

I think I have a serious Cruiserhead in the making
