    Ok...so this may seem kindof random...but for the longest time I've wanted to restore an old FJ. I love the FJ43. So after countless hours on google...I've come to realize that they are mainly imported here from south america. Ny question is...how the hell do I do that?!?!? Any help/experience would be great. Thanks!

    Hi there,

    I saw your message on tacomaworld.com.

    My name is Sander Gielen, I am Dutch and live in Santa Marta (Colombia). For the last two years I have been selling and shipping FJ43´s to the USA. I work together with Greg Mushro from vintageoffroad.com and have also sold to private customers (I have references).

    If you are still looking for an FJ43 let me know, I have some beauties for sale!

    My email is: sandergielen@gmail.com
    Skype: sandergielen
    Cel: 0057-315-6060793

    Kind regards,

    Sander

    no, I am not. If you read the post carefully, you will see that the guy in Argentina is not me. You can contact Everett Barnes (the owner of thesamba.com) and ask him about this. I objected to this posting and he removed it. However, once something has been posted on the Internet, it will be there for always. It has been removed from thesamba.com however.

    BTW, Gerson Gaicedo was my competition for a few years when I was selling Volkswagen barndoors. He had an interest in trying to give me a bad name.

    I have sold a lot of cars world wide and can give you various references (also form the USA) if you are interested in buying an FJ43.

    If you have any further questions (or doubts) let me know.

    Kind regards,

    Sander
