Jon has a serious passion for vintage Toyota Land Cruisers, buying his first vintage Toyota Land Cruiser in 2003 (1987 FJ60 Wagon). He purchased his Trakka HJ75 Landcruiser pop top last year from eBay, having never made a large scale purchase from eBay before, and absolutely never purchased a vehicle sight unseen… until now. It was the first Landcruiser with a Trakka landcruiser pop top roof he’d found on eBay (with close to 450,000 kms on the clock). As you may or may not know,  the HJ75 Trakka Landcruiser pop top conversions are even rare in the Australian market.

The Volkswagen Kombi was our mainstay product from the mid to late 70s. As we begun attending the Australian Safari in the mid to late 1980’s we saw a jump in popularity & innovation in our 4wd conversions, in particular the Toyota Landcruiser Pop Tops.
