It's a hideous, corrupted piece of metal no matter WHO'S driving it, but if it is NOT a girl, it needs to hit an extra-large pothole at an extra-high rate of speed, by accident!! Like a volcano sized pothole...

I so much would like to see a pic of the owner! It's either some chick with big guns, or a dude with none!! Funny how one's imagination starts running. I was thinking, without a paint job FIRST, I wouldn't wheel this Jeep!!

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

and brutally honest too haha....i made a comment on there saying that guys here probably dont want a rig thats already perfect (although i dont see it judging by his pictures) they want one to do work on and restore or to beat up...i dont understand these guys that try and sell CJs for the price of their upgrades and time...it will never happen

One thing that always bugs me is when a person takes the time and money to put together a good looking CJ restore, but fails to correctly secure the wires behind the dash panel. Here's a prime example that also includes a scuffed up heater box, and orange peel/scratches/chips on the dash and glove box:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...SS%3AUS%3A1123

As of 2/20/2012, it's up to US $9,600.00 and still showing "reserve not met".

Maybe this one isn't quite "laughable" (at least the photos show some of the small flaws), but it'll be interesting to see where the price goes. I know this one has been up for auction before not too long ago.

I think I see a Scotchlok on there, maybe he's wise to be afraid to 'touch' them!!!

It's not ebay but it is pretty laughable. Mid to upper $30k range, must be really rare.

Oh yeah, those '84s are really rare!

When the person can't even spell "invester" correctly, has his own shop but can't foot the bill for the restoration, and lets us know that it's a 2 door 1984 CJ, it all spells trouble.

I'm applying for a Hybrid Grant to finish my CJ7. It will be BOTH a mud, and pavement, vehicle!
W/a small solar charger to keep the battery trickle charged.

I've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you
