I've been here a long time. Way back in the day I built this car, and used it to follow the HatchPatrol around the trails of the PNW. Most of us faded from taking the old rigs to the dirt, the smart ones invested in more capable Toyotas, the others moved on down the road of life. I chose to invest that time/money in other projects... But I still have the Beast, and I still continue to drive it nearly everyday.
Recently I got the chance (thanks Qman!) to take the Beast through its paces on film for Subiesport.tv. The experience was well worth the day off, and it did re-ignite my offroading desire!

You have to sign up I think, but its free. Its a well produced 20 minute video, my part starts at the 7min mark or so.
