It's a shame

I always feel bad when I see this. Wish I had more money and skills so that I could buy this and restore it. Bring it back to life

That is a creative use of the spare tire no matter what shape the rest of her is in. Here I thought I needed to find some seats for my 79 CJ-7, but as it turns out I just need more spare tires!!!

No need. Just throw in a few tires and bungee cords for seat belts.

On a related note, we just returned from Disneyworld not that long ago. They have a dinosaur-dig themed play area.. complete with an actual Jeep CJ for kids to play on.



It was an actual CJ-7, but all the sharp edges were rounded down, and everything given a rubber coating. The engine was gone, but the suspension, and axles remained.

Around here that would be considered driveable.
