Island Cruisers

   NEXT TO the Willys Jeep, the Toyota Land Cruiser 40 series (best known as the FJ40) could be the most common vehicle in eastern Cuba. Rugged and long-lived, it serves as a ranch truck in the countryside and a taxi in the cities. Rounded grille identifies this soft-top FJ40 in Santiago as a 1978 or earlier model. Battery is mounted behind the bumper of this J40 in the seaside village of Siboney, perhaps so it can be easily removed at night as an anti-theft measure.
