    New Toy

    No it's not a supercoupe but a 1980 CJ 5. Always wanted one since I was 18 yrs. old but never bought one, now I did. It's already lifted with rims/tires, has a full roll cage, dual exhaust and brand new soft top. It needs a little TLC but that's no problem, I'm a tinkerer.

    Yeah, can't wait till the weather warms up enough to remove the top and doors so that the wind can blow my gray hair....................

    I just rebuilt a mostly stock '97 TJ for my youngest daughter. It started out as a rusty piece of crap, wound up replacing some floor boards, rocker panels and frame sections. It was a fun project, hope to get it back from MAACO today or tomorrow.

    I'm actually thinking about building one for myself now.

    Looks like fun!!!

    I got a 1970 Ford Bronco with a full fiberglass body and a BIG BLOCK in it.. It has power steering and disc brakes as well as a winch and big tires to go with it.. You could drive it home as it is all ready to go....Rich
    Too many cars,too little time to drive them. Anything less than 500 cubes is a small block. If you slow down in life you will get run over..

    Don't plan on going that far but I did add LED corner marker lights front/rear and tail lights.
