My 99 TJ is the second vehicle in my family to have attained "keeper" status. The first being my Dad's 48 Chevy pickup that my Mom's Dad bought new. My Dad restored it when he retired a few years back and it's going to be around for a while.
The 99 was my son's first vehicle and his DD for nine years. He didn't want to let it get away from the family but needed a new DD so I somewhat reluctantly sold my 98 4 cylinder and took his 99 over as my "project Jeep". The 99 really fits what I need much better with the 4.0 and A/C. I kept enough of the good stuff I added to the 98 to help get the 99 to where I want it for the weekend cruising and the occassional wheeling I do.
I did a quick count and came up with 29 vehicles I've owned, five of those were 73-79 F-Series trucks. The last of those was a 79 F-250 4x4 that I bought from a friend of our family (it had been his Dad's) with the understanding he had first option on it should I decide to sell it. Once I got my Jeep I didn't have enough time to drive or work on the 79 and rather than let it sit outside and rot I sold it back to his family. That one I miss as it was pretty nice, they don't plan on letting it go.
