Hey everyone! I am super excited to finally get this interview out that I conducted with Maarten at Cruiser World ( at his shop in the Netherlands back on Oct. 19th, 2022.

And no matter where you are in the world, if you need parts for your Land Cruiser, especially the 60 series, give Maarten an email/ring!

Thank you all for listening and checking out the photos. And a massive thank you to Maarten for hosting me and sharing his stories and history. It was such a blast and I wish I could have stayed much longer and picked his brain. Hopefully more next time! Cheers all!
