I love this [url=”http://www.coc-europe.com/coc-toyota”]Toyota [/url]FJ40. Great Alternative to [url=”http://www.coc-europe.com/coc-ford”]Ford[/url] Bronco or Land Rover.
Fantastic video and a great little runabout FJ. This reaffirms my love for these simple trucks!
I saw this link from a forum and wanted to add a comment on your site. This is really a wonderful piece. Aside from very nice video and scenery the piece is really touching given how much that guy loves his FJ and the memories it’s made for him. I’ve always wanted an FJ because of their utilitarian look and feel. Thanks for making this – it’s really nice.
What is the info on the song that starts around 4:39?
Brilliantly shot and great family story on such a legendary truck. Got me stoked to fuel up the FJ45 and find a far off fishing spot this weekend.
Great video again Petrolicious! As and owner of a ’71 FJ 40, this video, for me, captures a lot of the essence of what is so great about these little trucks. Keep up the great work!
I was immediately stunned by the video. Knowing what it took to put this together, all I can say is BRAVO! The FJ40 is a very solid example and Josh has a great story to tell. I’ve been working with Land Cruiser buyers and sellers for years now and they range from young fans willing to put in a lot of sweat equity to Doctors and professional types who want to do nothing but get in, turn the key and go! I have found the vast majority to be great to work with and genuinely nice people.
A lovable Toyota is way too far in between, I don’t know why such a big company with technology and know-how like Toyota can’t make more lovable cars. FJ40 is definitely one of rare lovable Toyotas. What a great car, such a feel good car. Fantastic video!
I remember back around 1969 my father was the first in the neighborhood to buy a Toyota Corona. All the neighbors gave him grief over his choice, but he would tell them about the reliability, gas mileage, fun to drive, but still they gave him grief. These where the days when big American cars ruled the roads. This was at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado and I don’t know if it was winter setting in, or all the grief from our neighbors, but I remember coming home from school and finding the Corona gone replaced by a… Read more »
What an awesome video. Incredibly shot, and totally exudes all of the sense and sensibilities that I like to associate with Petroliscious. “I enjoy driving it. I feel good every time I get in it.” Well said Josh!
The little car that could! Great how we all love our different types of drives and how we can appreciate those of others.
First … great tastefully resto-modded FJ40 as well as a pretty decent video effort Talk about a car who’s value has been escalating in leaps and bounds . Well restored/resto-modded FJ40’s in gentrified ski towns such as Vail , Aspen , Sun Valley , Telluride etc going for in excess of $100k lately … with unrestored well used ones easily reaching $40k or more . The FJ40 being yet another example of the functional , practical and easy on the budget becoming the darlings of the gentry immediately escalating the prices to stratospheric levels with little or no justification other… Read more »
Not true. Not true to the point of being ridiculous. The values are going up, realistically HAVE gone up, not because these are now suddenly popular with the “gentry” but because there are not too many left. Cruisers rust and they do so quite badly. The 40 will rust while you watch it. Tubs and frames turn to dust and since these have been used and abused, not many made it out alive. Many parts are still available and being reproduced as there is plenty of demand for them. To say that they are expensive because the rich are buying… Read more »
