This bad boy was actually used at an airport (Grants Pass Aviation paint on the side) back in the day. We held on to her for many years, sitting and sitting, and finally just decided to put some money into it and restore it. We have just begun the process...

That's a nice FJ. When do you expect the restoration to be complete?

The old FJs definitely look better than the new ones. If you can't tell, I'm not a fan of the new design.

The restoration is going to be a while. We're stripping everything down and pretty much replacing everything. Finding parts that are clean and legit is hard right now Time's also been a problem but, we'll see. And i couldnt agree more-definitely the old over the new FJs
