There are plenty of people out there restoring vintage Toyotas, but the people at the FJ Company always set the bar a little higher. Joining the collection of the 1974 FJ45 Pickup Truck, 1967 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ45LV and the 1971 Toyota FJ43 is this 1982 FJ43 Aspen. Dubbed “The Aspen Project,” this full frame-off restoration was commissioned by the president of the FJ Company to be a purpose-built, family-friend beast that could tackle the everyday as well as the backcountry near Aspen. 210hp Toyota 1FZ engine with Haltech EFI. 5-speed manual transmission. Matte white paint job. Warn 8274 winch. PIAA 7″ LED fog lights. Custom roll cage. Recaro SPEED seats. Premium sound system with Bluetooth. It might have started as a vintage restoration, but the final product is a modern classic.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
