We’re very happy to report today that Troopy is footloose and fancy-free on the streets of Old Napoli - finally! After 3 long months being cooped up in a 40 foot container traveling the high seas, Troopy finally saw the light of day today, thanks to our good friends at Transcar (our Agent in Port of Naples). He looks no worse for wear and fired right up (thanks to his new Optima battery installed right before he was shipped). Troopy’s current schedule will have delivery here in Catania, Sicily sometime late next week. Stay tuned for more pics of the arrival.
Troopy’s Travel Log:

PS - Little brother FJ made it just fine also. It’ll be fun driving both Toyotas in Italian city traffic! We’ll save that story for another time...
