Default 40's Only Run!

I have been pondering the reality lately that FJ40's are becoming scarcer and scarcer on the trails and thought maybe I would throw out the idea of a 40's Only Run. It's always fun to wheel with a bunch of cruisers similar in vintage, and as much as I admire newer cruisers, I think an old school run might be something Rising Sun could pull off since there are actually quite a few members who have 40's and are willing to wheel them (including a few who are also lucky enough to sport a 55/60/70/80/100 in the fleet).

So what do you think? Wouldn't it be fun to have a gang of 40's on the trail?

Post your thoughts for trails and dates, I'm willing to pre-run it and lead it.

Yes yes!! I've been thinking the same thing.. and if you don't have a 40 that's ok, just meet at the meeting place then hop in with someone


I guess it depends on the 40s involved, but I've always like Kingston Peak for a run, especially when it ends at a in Idaho Springs. But I'm up for just about anything.. put it together!

I'd be in for a close run...I'm a wuss

Like to actually get the 40 out on a trail but I'd have to get a hall pass since mine is only a 2 seater right now
