I'll have to look around. I found 5 good ones in this thread that I setup as a slide show of desktop backgrounds.

Wow, there's some beautiful pics here! They'd make a great calendar or framed wall art.

This thread also makes me REALLY want to restore a flatty.

Here's a CJ that has almost faded away into time but sadly awaits it's fate. This thread had my tear ducts going, seeing all these old CJs hits a soft spot and makes me want to go rescue all of them!

I found a white zj 4x4 like mine in a local junkyard that was for that cash for clunkers crap.
I asked if they would sell it as a whole and they said that they couldn't... it's really a shame, it was rust free, interior looked like someone shampoo'd and vacuumed it out before they took it in even.

A CJ-5 that has seen better days:

I think this thread goes to show that there are still alot of old CJ's out there if you really want one.

Last summer before I bought my parts XJ, I had a chance to buy a running 63 CJ for $600, I also had a chance to buy a 56 & 58 CJ (one didn't have a title, and the other didn't run) for $500. If you really want one and want to have a labor of love. There should be no problem in getting one.

Not as bad of condition as many Jeeps in this thread, but this one was for sale at the last Indy 4x4 Jamboree. My wife and I considered it, for a about 30 seconds. My father-in-law has a body shop, but unfortunately out of state.
