Very cool. I love the police escort and the "drive through" window. This whole process takes place quite often nowadays in 20 year GCs, but there is usually a Meth tweaker at the wheel

It has been around for a while (obviously), but given today's circumstances, we could use something to smile about. I remember seeing the breaking glass footage being played over and over again on the evening news.

This reminds me... I have the orientation video that came with mine. It's still in the wrapper. Maybe I need to watch it and see if i've missed something in 15 years.

Great video. I have always appreciated the engineering and automation in automobile manufacturing. The "design" for the "design" is quite amazing.

If I am not mistaken, the ZJ was the LAST Jeep vehicle designed by AMC engineers, that plant was built for its production and was completed by Chrysler.

I owned AMC Eagle's years ago, and since I always had an admiration for AMC designs, and the Eagle's are no longer around, the ZJ will stay.
(no matter how much hair I pull out)

Once again, GREAT VIDEO !!!!!!!!

My guess is that the tailgate is also stuck. Wow, it just occurred to me that the 93's now qualify for antique tags here in FL!
