History So I have this really good friend who had an awesome '92 Jeep Wrangler Islander that was an absolute blast to drive. We went 'wheeling all the time and had SO much fun just hangin' out together, working on our rigs, or whatever. One day when I took my '85 Nissan 4x4 to a glass shop to have the windshield replaced, he asked if he could drive the Nissan right about the same time I asked if I could drive his Jeep. HA! Great mind DO think alike. So, even though it was only a few miles, I thoroughly enjoyed driving his Jeep (the top was down and it was an awesome day, so who wouldn't love that?!). I decided at that point that I would have a Jeep someday.

A few years later, I picked up my 1980 CJ-7 from the Auto Skills Development Center at Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas, in March 1995 while my wife was stationed in Korea. I was afraid when I called her and told her that I had ditched my Blazer and bought a Jeep, that she would be upset. But quite to the contrary, she was almost ecstatic since she actually really hated my '78 K5 Blazer - another story. OK - so that went well...

Over the years since, I've had lots of fun with the Jeep, playing in the lakes, climbing hills, putting everything back together when it broke, and making it nice again for local car shows.
