I drive a 2005 Ford Expedition Limited 2WD, and a 2006 Suzuki Bouelvard C90T!


My first car was a 1998 BMW Z3.

The first car I purchased all by myself was a 1993 Toyota Tercel with a turbocharged Starlet motor. Ugly as hell but ran 11s in the 1/4

My guess would be that they are more plentiful than the old CJs. I have only seen about a dozen CJs in my travels over the last 20 years, and that is including the CJ 5 that was my uncles. It is currently sitting in the back yard, awaiting a rather large parts order to get running again, and a lot of work before it can be deemed road worthy.

Take in to account that I live in the rust belt, and most FWD vehicles are already starting to rust out within 10 years up here. I'm sure there are more of them out west and down south. The 66 Cj 5 in the back yard came out here in 1993 from Mountain Home Idaho when my uncle retired from the Air Force. It was originally from the area around Homestead AFB in south Florida, so it had a bit of a jump start on the rust before it came up here.

The wranglers are somewhat of a rarity up here, but there are enough of them around to show up in large numbers during trail rides. Most Jeepers up here are running Cherokees from what I have seen. With my urge to just be different, I am holding out for a Scrambler Myself. i just love the look of the old CJ 8s.

i had a 75 CB 550 and a 1976 CB 750 years ago. Two of the cheapest bikes I have ever owned, but also 2 of the smoothest riding ones I have owned. Good memories of many a ride where the destination was secondary to the journey.

A lot of that depends on what you are building. CJ frames are junk and most will be rusted out now. A YJ frame is larger over all and was made out of thicker material and have very few crumple zones. TJ frames would be good but you have to deal with the crumple zones. I refer to frames because most of what I deal with is going to have the suspension thrown out and a 4 link built in. I want a good foundation to start with. After all that I would much rather start with one of the old square headlight Wranglers . I just finished up a CJ but had to do a lot of plating on the frame.
I love the old CJ's. If a 4 inch lift and 33 or 35 inch tires is what your talking about any of them will do.

The only lasting effect is from time to time I forget what a word is, or I get struck trying to say the word. I'll know what it is and how it sounds, but it won't come out when I want to say it. That and some major arthritis during cold, wet, weather. The funny part of the brain injury is this. The fracture was on the left side front, but the damage was done to the right side at the back of the brain for the most part. All in all I recovered well, and I am thankful for it.

That's good that you faired well enough. Jeeze though man. Wow.

Man these threads make me feel weird.... For being one of the youngest members I have the oldest cars...

My first car was a 1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe (that I still have), and my current car is a 1984 Dodge Rampage...

Every man needs to have at least one car in their life earlier than 1974 and learn to work on it.

I shake my head at my sisters who insisted on their kids first cars be only a couple years old and reliable. My first car was as old as I was, and I was under the hood of it every weekend. And I loved it.

Even if I can't do much to the cars that I own today, at least I know how to replace a valve cover gasket. I know how to tune twin carbs. I know how to swap out coils. And I have a working knowledge of how the engine and car work. I'm not even sure one of my nephews knows where to add oil.
