Retro Styling

This has never happened to me before. I had three strangers on the same day tell me how much they liked the look of the Toyota FJ Cruiser I was driving. Two were men in their 50s and the other was a woman in her 40s. One of the men guessed the price of the FJ at $50,000. He was shocked when I told him it was half that amount.

What attracted these people to the FJ was the familiarity of the design. The FJ borrows heavily from the popular and highly collectible 1960s-era FJ40 safari vehicle, with its box-like shape, grille and headlight configuration, wrap-around rear windows and signature white roof.
