Please help a once valiant offroad icon sold into humiliating bondage!

I was in Key West, FL last week. The family and I took a quick cruise. As we were waiting for our shore excursion to begin, I noticed a horrifying sight: A hopeless pair of square headlights beckoning to me from behind the grill of the Conch Train. It was a poor YJ! Sold into the most demeaning of tasks, dragging tourists around an island while wearing a cheap sheet metal suite. The poor creature must have known I am a Jeeper. It almost cried out to me as it's "driver" urged it past. I left Key West heartsick knowing this once great YJ will likely never see a trail again.........
Maybe we could call Sally Struthers or start a telethon, anything to help......

Do you wave to the poor thing or would it just be embarrassed that you recognized it?

Yeah, these are CJ's and YJ's, my buddy lived on Key West and drove a TJ (Jeeps are really popular down there, it's great Jeep country) I kind of like this. They're dependable and that's why they use them.
