Something to add to your LJ collection

While looking through some Frank Herbert (author of the Dune series) books at the used book store the other day I stumbled across something startling. When I picked up deimos_jr at school I handed him the book and saw him do this in the seat behind me...
I guess he's been posting too much because he actually made that face several times in a row, just as he does in his posts!
The artists name is Paul Youll. We did a little research and I've included the link to a larger image of the cover art and his primary website. I was tempted to contact him via his site to see if he had an LJ80 (deimos_jr's guidance) and has ever visited LJ10.com.
Larger picture of the cover art (deimos_jr's new background).

Keep us posted on what you find out. I wonder if he owns one himself.

now thats cool, has anyone contacted the artist yet to know if he does have an lj.

His contact info is on his website. I thought about sending him an email but haven't yet.
This is the 2004 reprint of the book. Deimos_jr saw it on ebay and half.com for a few bucks; it can probably still be found at Borders or other book stores.

Its an lj80 isn't it? none of the other open ljs came with doors I don't think.

Yes, it is an LJ80. You can tell from the rear fenders - LJ80's had wider axles... I think the last of the LJ50's might've also (the LJ50 III) but we're gonna just say it's an LJ80.

Must be a RHD LJ80 (or the painting has been reversed) because the fuel filler and the spare tire swing arm on my LJ80 are on the passenger side

Oooo, good eye Meatloaf!
The painting has to be reversed - all LJ80's had the fuel filler on the right side, regardless of whether it was RHD or LHD.

Except for the one on Smuz's clock!

That's why I trusted your advice, kid. You've done a lot more research and reading than I have! Good job.

HEHEH only all of that boring summer at my grand parents while you were gone.

Oh you two stop it!

But the most obvious reason it is a LJ80 is the hard top doors on a soft top. Only the LJ80 came out with that combination

Yup thats what I said when I first saw it.
