Best day had to be yesterday afternoon with my 9 year old son. I decided to pass the torch to him and let him begin his driving experience.... I had more fun watching him trying to reach the pedals and manage the steering wheel. Boy did real good on those old lumber trails.

The look of fright combined with the smile on his face...SIMPLY PRICELESS!.

How about a day of wine tasting with your 73 yr old father? Sunny CA day, 76F, top & doors off, running Westside Rd along the Russian River Valley. It was great. The old man hadn't been in a Jeep since he retired from the military and "those didn't have half doors or sport bars."

I know exactly what your boy was going thru moz. I learned how to drive on an 83 CJ-7. I was about 11 when I got to start learning how to work the clutch and pedals on my own. I'll never forget it and I think that was better than my dad teaching me how to throw a baseball.

That is great, I can't wait until my boys can go solo in the drivers seat. I have let them both steer before and that was fun too.

That reminds me of when I took my grandfather for a ride in my Jeep topless a few years back. He loved it, he talked about it for years. He is gone now, so I am glad you helped bring this memory back.

not really in the Jeep, but you guys reminded my of it

My grandpa had had knee surgery and had had his knee replaced. He could not walk very well and is used to workin almost all day doing projects. he had been off his feet for a month, and now was not really getting back into doing anything, just watching T.V.
So i decided i needed to do an oil change and diif fluid change and put in the new starter. Asked him if he would supervise since i hadn't done it B4, It was the first time he was out of the house doing a project in months, he was so happy after that back to himself, i wouldn't say he smiled, but as close as he ever gets to it he loves my jeep too (55 cj5, but i think my family thinks it's an M38A1 b/c it i spainted that way and has a puch start)
beat time in my jeep was when i finally go it going after not being able to get it to start, then no clutch, and no alternator, and no battery, and leaky radiator, well the first time i used it to haul 4 ft. sections of logs I was pretty happy and i swear i saw the jeep smile after being dormant for 15 yrs.

Girls will get attracted to you with your jeeps is around but without it, you seem invisible Guys with jeeps seem to be musculine. Maybe it has something to do with some jeep parts like its Jeep head lights. Du no
