i like georgs answer much better :flipoff2:Swaycat said:Look in the first few pages of a Spector catalog. It has a story of the birth of the Cruiser.
It says that BJ (the first Cruisers) were called that because back then, these were "Toyota Jeeps", "B" was the type of motor, and "J" stood for "Jeep model". That was back in 1950. SO, after the Cruiser was equipped with an F-type motor, The 'J' is still there from yesteryear, and so it's called the FJ. F motor, Jeep model. In 1954, the "Toyota Jeep" became the "Land Cruiser". So I guess technically, if you want to count anniversaries, last year it was Land Cruiser's 50th anniversary!!
