In the 1970′s, Bob “Snake Eyes” Garret envisioned a national (U.S.A.) 4 wheel drive organization devoted to the Toyota LandCruiser. In 1976, Bob’s vision “took root” with the formation of the founding chapter of the Toyota Land Cruiser Association … Toyota Land Cruiser Association Ventura County.
TLCA’s growth was initially slow, with new chapters based almost exclusively in California, U.S.A.. Knowledge of TLCA spread primarily by word of mouth, TLCA events and a published newsletter Toyota Trails. Since then TLCA events have spread and are held annually throughout the US. Toyota Trails has developed into one of the finest 4 wheel drive publications anywhere.
The year 2001 marked TLCA’s celebration of its 25th anniversary. It is a tribute to its dedicated members and the hundreds of volunteer leaders who have nurtured the association over the years to what it is today.

Time for another landcruiser.commentary post. On-line forums and other enthusiast supported websites are invaluable resources for shady-tree mechanics – I don’t know how I’d keep my FJ60 running without help from the on-line community. IH8MUD.com is the Land Cruiser forum I frequent the most. The site is an invaluable resource for any Land Cruiser enthusiast. Check it out.
The Land Cruiser Heritage Minisite is a cool tribute to the history of the Land Cruiser.
I have a lot of interests, one of them is the Toyota Land Cruiser. History Lesson. My 1st Land Cruiser was an FJ55, I drove it while I was in high school, and today I drive an 84 FJ60. So I thought I’d create yet another category here on palmit.com – landcruiser.commentary.
My 1st post is a series of pictures a friend of mine took while he was traveling in Tibet. He knew of my interest in Land Cruisers so he brought these back for me. Enjoy!
