Doc, That is a fun way to raise money for a good cause.

Can't believe someone would want to close the trails for everything from ATV's to Jeeps to snowmobiles.

I am no tree hugger but I do know the Holy Bible says to replenish the earth as necessary. These environmental groups take it too far.

Hopefully someday the money that is donated to legal funds can go to maintaining the trails in a normal & positive manner someday.

For example, raise a million dollars through Jeep events then build an apartment in the city and that money goes towards buying up land and upkeep maintenance of historically marked Jeep trails in the countryside, a nice old time general store and things like the business model that Mr. Trump has successfully used for his golf courses & chain of famous hotels.

Who knows the Jeep Corporation might help us achieve that dream of having historically marked Jeep trails throughout the 50 states ?

Like the interstate system that was built in the 1940's - 1950's.

There could be a historical off-road Jeep trail criss-crossing the U.S.A.

Hi Doc, Sometimes I get carried away by too many good ideas.

Good information for in the future doing a Jeep restoration to a mint condition of the classic Jeep.

i think about my 1947cj2a. My first ride. many trips on the rubicon with that thing. though it was so small compared to Jeeps today. like a clown car. that was long long time ago.

The Jeep had to get its starting point somewhere on the pages of American history. Compared with today's engines, the Jeep engine was a humble engine.

humble.

top speed of it was 50mph thats was foot to thefloor. like 70hp? but it had great torque for a flat head 4 banger. It could not go past the speed of smell(Ron White). Vws back then would want to race me as it was the only thing slower on the road. lol but she was great off road, but like a covered waggon's suspension. very easy to work on or fix on a trail. wonder if its still running.

That tan Jeep must have been your first time to drive to high school & going to work as a teenager ? I can only imagine the stories you may have at the burger places where girls in roller skates delivered your hamburger & fries and milkshakes and taking the Jeep to the drive in theater to watch a movie.
