I'd be careful picking on Jerry, it's like teasing a wolverine - you only do it once!

One of the biggest rules of fighting is: Never pick a fight with an older guy. If he's too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

Reminds me of a scene in an old movie (don't remember the name). Kung-fu type guy comes flying and kicking up to this other guy who just raises his gun and shoots the kung-fu guy. Simple solution.

I'm 49, but learned to drive on an old CJ3A when I was a kid back in the mountains of W,Va. I thought that jeep could go anywhere with 4 bald tires and a couple of cousins to push.

Only 62 years young here, started driving jeeps about 1967, M-715's and M-725's. Summer job with Kaiser doing retrofits on about 7500 vehicles before they were turned over to the Army and Marines. Still driving Jeeps and enjoy the off-roading and trail riding. Lifted XJ for DD and one ton YJ with small block Chevy for trail and rocks.

Almost forgot about the old Army Jeep titled as a 1944 and that would make it 3 years older than me. Not bad for 65 year old toy.

I'm 62. Got my first Jeep, new, '73 Commando in '73. Had about 10 or so since, but had to go without one for about 20+ yrs. while raising a family. Wished I hadn't waited so long to get my '08 4dr., as arthritis prevents me from getting in and out w/o pain, and, well...looks funny.

Note to you whippersnappers...get them and enjoy them while you can!

That would be "Raiders of the Lost Ark".
That other guy that shoots the kung-fu guy was Harrison Ford.
Excellent movie! One of my favorites!

I'm only 39.
My Jeep is 22.
Wanted a Jeep since I was a kid.
I ain't the oldest, but I ain't the youngest.
