I was 3 years old when my ZJ was built.

Both of mine are full coverage. It's already saved my butt once.

I can't afford full coverage. Sub-25 male with an at-fault in the last 5 years here. Basic liability for my two cars would cost me $350/mo at the cheapest. Full coverage on either of them would double that.

I have no choice but to pay full coverage. That's one of the prices you pay when the bank owns your jeep...

Dang. I'm 22 with two ZJs and a motorcycle with a reckless endangerment on my record. Full coverage for all of that is $89 a month.

I'm paying the bank $153 a month on a 3 year loan. Not a huge deal. Still leaves me with enough for gas and parts if need be. I'm content, though

Maybe it's a personal loan and he used the title as collateral or something like that?

Nah, car loan. Figure it's a good way to start my credit history, and I was in a bind and needed a vehicle. Only way to do that was through a loan.
