    Default FG's in Action

    Hi Guys. I'm hoping that the moderators will see fit to make this a "sticky" thread if it takes off. Some of the pics that have come out from Tony and Michael recently prompted me to maybe start a thread just for FG's in action rather than just putting them in the "camper examples" thread. Not necessarily doing radical offroad things but maybe showing FG's with awesome scenery or just good photography. I know Bajaroad had some good pics awhile back too, That sort of thing.

    Up to the moderators but I'm going to try and kick it off anyway and see what they think.

    Of course, these I have transfered over on behalf of FGcrazy. Hope that's OK Tony. Should have done this to start with.

    Here's a 1957 FG (not really) barging off Waldron Island in the San Juans.

    Someone has put a MB 5cyl 617 diesel in one of those and a Trillium camper on the back. Nice unit.

    I know this is off topic, but a Forward Control Jeep is pretty close to an FG:

    It's the build thread on the vehicle I mentioned above.

    Not too rare around here although nice ones are hard to come by. I bought 4 of them in the last year for $100, $300, $600, and $2000. The one from Waldron was $600 and runs great with a 292 Chev 6 in it. Here's one that followed me home from Oregon :
