The FJ40 emerging here from the soupy mix belongs to Tomasz Jurgilewicz. He drove the open-top Cruiser to the event from his home in Shelton, Connecticut, where he’s lived for about 13 years after coming to the U.S. from Poland. He’s built up his ’79 FJ40 for trail running using an Australian-sourced H41 tranny and a three-speed transfer case. Those are 38.5-inch Baja Claws spinning their way back to the mucky surface.
