welcome to join us.
Somebody pinch me, it's finally here. What was a crazy daydream in June of 2009 is now a reality. I dared to dream
that if I put my money where my mouth is and offered up a running Fj40 to the TLCA, they could use it not only as
a fundraiser, but as a rallying point for that special kind of community it so often claims to offer. Five years later
the truck you see before you is a testament to all the organization is...and isn't.
New friendships were made, and some old ones tested. Egos clashed like a truck on a rock pile. The project
sputtered, then stalled, then miraculously came back to life again, just like good old engines that run many of our
Land Cruisers often do. Not enough can be said about the sheer tenacity of the Capitol Land Cruiser Club and the
truck's ultimate defacto chairman Jon Sourbeer. Individually and collectively they reminded us again and again of
the truth that the TLCA is really nothing more or less than the will and the energy of its members.
Wherever men and women gather together for a common purpose, there is tremendous potential for good things
to happen. The Capitol Land Cruiser Club, and all those who joined in this endeavor, have proven once again the
old adage that actions speak louder than words and, leading by example, should remind us all what we can
accomplish when we choose to commit ourselves to a common purpose. There are many lessons to be learned
here, including a few for me. Thank you one and all for sharing my dream and thank you even more for helping
make it a reality.
