Ok guys, here's my toy. I've been working my butt off for the last month and this is what I have to show so far.....Pics the day I brought it home one month ago and of today after getting my new wheels on...
Just bought my first Jeep from one of my friends. It is a 79 CJ7. It does run and drive but needs some work. Body is pretty solid. all original except for the seats and center console.
last picture is my fiancee and my new rescue dog too.
GEOFFTC - Welcome to the 79CJ7 Club! There's quite a few of us on here. And a big thumbs up on getting your girl (and pup) to do a poser shot, let alone in the garage!
I might get my wife into the CJ once a year...key word is might. To her, the CJ is for fun, not transportation - and that's fine with me cuz she never asks for the keys. She just went from her Cowgirl Cadillac (a 98 Chevy Silverado 4X4 w/98,000 original miles on it) to her new Cowgirl Caddy (a 2013 Toyota SR5 4Runner 4X4). We live in the mountains so in her mind vehicles need only two parts up here... 4X4 is the necessity part and "leather seats and satellite radio" is the luxury part. I can't complain though, we had the other one for 15 years and we haven't had a car payment for 13 of those years.
Anyway, welcome to the club. Pictures are required when you do anything to it....cuz we're nosey SOB's.
