interesting Jeep story

this Jeep belongs a winner on the price is right. he was on his honeymoon.

i cant remember what year it was, i think it was 1993. these pics were taken in spring 2005!

he doesnt drive it in the winter, only puts about 1000 miles on it a year in the summer. i wish i had taken more pictures, it is in pristine condition.

dont bag on the guy for not wheelin it. its awesome to see a jeep kept in all original form and maintained really well. especially for over a decade.

Thats about how my Yj looked when I got it, It was owned by a priest, and he never drove it. Only had 42k on it when I got it in 2002. I on the other other hand creased the hood all the way across with in 20hrs of purchase and I lifted it, geared it and gave it some new seats with in 2wks. Oh yea got the hood fixed about a month later which cost $300 just to have an @$$ hat break into my engine compartment and take $15 worth of filters and crap, and then leave the hood unlatched. Wham right into the windshield again 3wks after having it fixed. Oh well, just turned 89k on a 90'.

That right there is the start of one of the "Jeep for sale $500.00 stories"

You go to check it out to see if it has any decent parts left on it you may want and the wife says it ws my husbands he won it in a contest yers ago, hardly ever drove it. He passed on a year ago and I have no use for it. If you thik it is worth $500.00 it's yours.

The kind of stuff dreams are made of.

EVERYBODY is pro-gun, some just don't know it. When an anti-gun person is in trouble, the first thing they do is call 911 and demand that they send somebody with a gun!

Trying to understand some people, is like trying to pick up a turd by the clean side.
