It is funny to think, back in about 1988, a buddy and I drove my 1977 fj40 from Indiana to LA via the grand Canyon and back in 10 Days we only passed 2 vehicle on the WHOLE 5000 mile trip, to get the best mpg we could, we drove looong streaches at 45 -50.
About 4 years later my new wife and I drove the same beast to Idaho and back on our honey moon. Looking back I guess it was kinda nuts. ah but those were the days! I still have the wife and many parts of the 40 are now transplants in the 1965 fj45 pick-up.
