I've always wanted a Jeep. Specifically, a white Jeep. I figured this is due to my early childhood memories of my grandfather taking me for rides exploring the Mohave desert of Arizona in his CJ-7. He purchased the Jeep new and used it strictly in AZ for launching his boat and hunting in the desert. My grandfather passed away several years ago but his old Jeep has remained, parked in his garage.
I just got word that his Jeep will be coming home to live with me for its next life of adventures.
I'm currently in the middle of a move from SoCal to central AZ, otherwise I'd be hauling a trailer this very moment to pick it up. Most likely I'll be heading out to get it in the next few weeks. I'm beyond excited to freshen it up and get it going. I'll likely be using the vast wisdom on this forum to learn while working out any bugs/issues it has from years of being parked(although I believe a neighbor has started the Jeep on occasion to keep it running).
Here's a photo of me in the Jeep as kid...and a few current pics I was sent of it parked today...
