A couple of years ago I purchased my first ever vehicle at 16 years old.
A 1990 XJ Limited was what my dad and I dragged home. $500 and I thought it was a steal.
Here is it with my first ever truck.
The previous owner had pop rivet'd the floors with something like 22 gauge sheet metal. It would not pass safety. Because of that, I let it sit for two years and sold it for $300 to a scrapper.
Well now I'm back. I picked this 1997 XJ Sport up last week. It needs some work, but for $1400 I think I did alright.
It needs brakes, which I'm working on this week. The pedal goes straight to the floor, but it doesn't seem to be leaking from anywhere... . And a little of body repair to stop the cancer from spreading.
The only thing I'm really worried about is that the previous owner had a shop replace the motor with a 2004 4L out of a TJ. Only time will tell.
