Welcome to FJ60.com. This is a blog about the Toyota Landcruiser story across the world. Not just the FJ60 series, but the global Landcruiser story. Above all, we will be documenting the restoration of our own family Toyota Landcruiser FJ62 back to roadworthy condition.
About MeI’m a professional writer and photographer, creating content for print and digital publishers globally. I work principally in travel, automotive, aviation and lifestyle areas, working with brands, tourism locations and vehicle manufacturers.
My principle blog at Historic Racer covers the classic and historic motorsport scene with it’s associated lifestyle, memorabilia and leisure travel industries. The active and knowledgeable readership attracts followers from across the world.
My previous career in the automotive and specialist car industry left me with a loyalty and fondness for the Toyota and Lexus brands. The Landcruiser in particular.
Why not? Here in the UK, the 60 Series Landcruiser is a very rare vehicle. Toyota sold, quite literally, just a few dozen each year and with the blizzard of Land Rover marketing on home soil, they far outnumber Landcruiser here.
There is a huge industry supporting the continued restoration and use of the Defender and Discovery, but without exception, each owner I know has a love / hate relationship with their vehicle.
I’d prefer to restore and drive the most dependable 4×4 in the world, rather than catch oil leaks on my driveway.
But FJ60.com is more than just my project. I want to hear from other Landcruiser projects and stories across the world. Landcruisers of all models and vintages, whether you traverse entire continents in an FJ55 or enjoy taking your FJ Cruiser to the beach, if it’s unusual, I’d like to hear from you.
If you feel you can help with my sadly neglected FJ62, I’d love to hear from you. I can be pretty effective at gaining useful, targeted exposure to brands online, after all that’s my job. If we can help each other, please get in touch.
“It’s not an FJ60”
Before you start, yes, I’m aware that my vehicle is an FJ62. But FJ60 is more widely known and, to be honest, the domain became available. That simple.
