I had restored my 7, and it was sweet. But I got the 8 itch, and found it would not go away, so I bought one, and had to sell the 7. Yes, with the half top on, it's smallish inside, yes the bed is too small to be truly usefull for a lot of things (but plenty good for other stuff), but damn its cool. And while I've had to (and am no where near done) fix nearly everything on it, I think I have found my "forever" CJ. Rare is relative, but they are unique, and, I think, make for a more practical toy compared to a 7. The only thing I miss is the ability to turn around in a tiny area.
