ah yes......[sigh......] ye good olde days............

I cut my teeth on the CJ2 in the JFK era.

Learned lots of off road tricks with skinny tires and 60 hp.

Still appreciate the experience.....but there's no way I'd opt to drive across the country in a CJ2, even back then.

The first time I ever got into a Jeep it was a CJ5 back in 1978! I think back on that Jeep and the TJ we now own and I can tell you, the evolution has been a good one!

When I was about five years old a friend of my Granddad dumped an old WWII MB in his front yard. I played on that old Jeep for a couple of years. I attribute that to my Jeep fetish.
