    Default I am back after a long hiatus!!!

    Finally!! Been the worst 8 months of my life, from a personal standpoint. Added to this, I had to sell my Jeep ('97 Wrangler) which was beyond rigged. Been driving a F250 Super Duty, waiting patiently for the day my 90 year old neighbor would part with his mint '94 Wrangler. Well, maybe my luck has turned. My neighbor, who I really loved, passed away a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday, his son came over and offered the Jeep to me. I told him that under the present circumstances I really couldn't afford to part with the cash. He quickly informed me that one of his Dad's final wishes was for the family to GIVE me the Jeep. Well, it is now in my garage (was in his since he bought it in 1994). A mint, 1994 Wrangler, 6 cyl auto, 4500 miles, Meyers plow (he only used the Jeep to plow his driveway), red, absolutely no rust, interior is beyond perfect. Wife is threatening me with castration if I so much as think about doing anything to it. What a perfect platform to build-up. Pics of the new Jeep tomorrow, in the meantime, this was my '97. You can actually see the new Jeep parked in my neighbors driveway in the pic!!!. Good to be back. Semper Fi!!

    a long hiatus!!!

    Have you had a doctor check that for you? It might be serious!

    Actually, congratulations on the Jeep. That's great it's gone to a good home... I'm sure the former owner knew what he was doing... you'll think of him every time you turn the key. That's a kind of immortality we all can aspire to.
