Someone mentioned this being the most upsetting thread ever, and I agree. What kind of sick world do we live in?

hey! I owned that.

hey I used to own that,
the jeep was never abandoned or neglected, but well used and somewhat misfortunate.
with lincoln lockers it serve me well untill I finaly bought my John Deere



that picture was before my friend droped a 16" dia tree on it and before the frame severed in 3 locations.



it was still drivable on the farm at this point but once the front crosmeber severed in two, it would only turn left and was compleatly useless.

I ended up saving the gas tank, drivetrain and tailgate, but everthing else was rusted or bent beyond salvage.

everyone thinks this was sacralige, but really the jeep and remaining parts were way beyond salvage when I finaly scraped it.

this is how she died, not for the week of heart.

Screw it I'm too old for this crap!

Yeah, I don't know what causes that to happen, but they sent me an e-mail saying that the pics will be available soon.

I am open to offers if someone would like to upgrade my photobucket account...

I got a lot of new ones, and will post up soon!

Good news, yesterday pulling off my street I could see a flattie sitting behind the school where the shop for shop class is located and I went back there to see it and sure enough there was a CJ2A sitting back there. I'm hoping they are going to use it to rebuild it in one of the shop classes and now makes me want to get into a shop class even more! But I'm not quite certain. Someone mentioned it might get hauled to the dump! I'd be there to rescue it if they did such a thing. I don't know why they would it has a solid frame with all the dirvetrain components there and would make a nice overhaul, wish I had it right now!

Sure. If i were you i would look around there though. My buddy lives down in morristown and when i went down we took a ride and saw maybe two in 16 miles. That's pretty good.
