...my toys from the past. Wrenching on a samurai sure has me missing some of the toys from the past. I didn't even own a camera back then so the following are copy pastas of near representations of the best of the best toys I've had the pleasure of bustin' knuckles on. present: the last toy (similar to this 1972 low rider Courier) I had was 20 years ago: Before that, a 1966 datsun pick-up with a built V8 in it: A project I only started to build when the wife left and took everything that wasn't nailed down. a 1969 vista cruiser with 455 rocket V8: But the toy I miss more than any other was my 1978 FJ40: In 1974, my second car was unique even for the time. back when most guys were into Novas, malibus and mustangs.This is the one that started it all. I cut my teeth on a 1965 Bonneville. It really didn't count as a toy because it was a daily driver. I did, however, learn most of the mechanical principals and how to use most tools on a tuna boat like this: Again, these are simply representations of what I actually owned. It seemed that whenever there was a change in circumstances, the toys were the first thing to go. This doesn't even include the motor cycles, the boat, camper or anything else that guys get to sacrifice when a family comes first.
