Talking FJ40 with a "Hot Seat"

Not my thing...Looks more like something that would come out of one of those "Pimp My Ride" type shows...

But I must say the grill is pretty cool...As is the 42" flat screen tv - Chillin' and grillin' while watching your favorite wheelin' videos

BIN for just $33k and you could be stylin' in short order

1971 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40

Yeah...supposedly a $60k restoration that was sold at Barrett-Jackson 18 months ago for $44k

Personally, I'll be really surprised if bidding goes over $10k, assuming anyone bids at all.

That said, at $10k if it wasn't for the funky way the rear was restored you could flip the bezel, swap out the wheels/tires, change out some of the bling chrome, remove the tv, and have a really nice 40 - Sell off the stuff you pulled and come out with a nice 40 on a budget.

Edit: I saw that post Steve...wimp

The wheels are horrible but I kinda dig the tail lights. The tv is lame but the grill would be great for the snow run, or Wipe Out Hill lunch.

The guy has that thing jacked up so high you know it rides like a lumber wagon! I do like the wheels though but they are too big. If you look close you can see it has chrome hinges. Where do you get those?
