The "dinosaur" I was most excited to see in Jurassic World...

The "dinosaur" I was most excited to see in Jurassic World... The famous Jurassic Park YJ makes a triumphant return to the big screen... if only for a few brief scenes.

There's JP18 which transported Grant, Sattler, and Malcolm from the helipad in the original Jurassic Park. It's used by two characters as a hiding place from the mega dino and then smashed into the wall.





JP29 which carried Hammond and Gennaro is actually driven in the movie. The two kids jump it with a go-kart battery and drive it back to the new park while being chased by other dinosaurs.








After this the YJs are abandoned and the movie continues to fulfill it's obligation to Mercedes.

So what do you think? Would a YJ abandoned in a jungle garage for 22 years even run with just a new go-kart battery?

hells ya it would.

it was a brand new vehicle stored indoors. just needed a new battery. they go on craigslist for 100 million dollars remember? LOL.

it would not surprise if it started no. however the fuel in it would be pretty rank, and i doubt it would run longer than they drove it haha

There's another thread on this as well.. Yours is better because of the pictures!!!

The consensus was... maybe...

I've resurrected motorcycles that were about the same age with fresh gasoline and a jump start. A cleaning of the spark plugs with sand paper helps a lot as well. Lets pretend they did that and cut it out of the movie to save time


Also, I'm pretty sure I've run 20 year old gel like turpentine through lawn mower engines before. Considering our 4.2L and 258s are pretty much just tractor engines, I want to believe it could handle it... I mean.. A jeep is pretty much just a big lawn mower anyway, right?

Too funny... My son and I had the same conversation on our way home after this movie.

It was a great "nod" to the original movie and those fantastic YJs!

What are the chances that a high school kid from today would know how to drive a stick shift?

About 1 in 100. I find it funny that he "failed his driver's test" but can drive a stick like he's a pro. Kinda wished the little kid drove. When he was listing off all of the specs of the Jeep I was cheering in my head like go kid.

Totally believe that it would start after all those years, but not without its oil leaks

Anything is possible, I guess. They did make it sound like it was misfiring/running rough.
