I can't stop the addiction

I just purchased another cj7. I'm not even close to finishing my 1978 and had to buy another one. What's wrong with me? I just could not pass this one up...It's 1976 all original renegade v8 3spd from California. I'm having it shipped from out west. No rust,original paint and wheels even a special ordered winch from jeep. This one will have to sit for a while until I finish my 78 cj7 build. I hope to have it looking like the bottom pic someday.

I know this feeling I am currenlty redoing my 79 cj5 and shoping for another everyday!!!!looking for a 80's model cj7.....and parts to fix her up for my wife....already found a automatic TH400 for a early cj5 and a 304 mated to it....it is not addiction its love.......but it could be a sickness......they don't make drugs for it but they do have cj junkyard to make you fell better. and after that i want to build a didecated trail rig.

I agree, it's definitely some sort of strange addiction. Some people find a stray dog and want to take it home.......I see a Jeep for sale and want to take that home. I'm getting better though, last year I had six Jeeps in my drive (3 CJ's, 2 XK's, 1 XJ) and now I'm down to only four Jeeps but I might be picking up a nice ZJ this week. By the way, nice CJ.

That 76 looks like a great find. The addiction is easy to understand. We see so many rust eaten old jeeps, that when we find one that looks like that, we just have to have it. Good luck with it!
