Found another one!

I've been eyeballing a Jeep grille sticking out of a barn on a back road.
Left a note yesterday and the guy called me last night and I'm going to take a look later today.
He says it's a CJ.
Some people rescue dogs, cats, horses...
I seem to rescue Jeeps.
I rescued an 87 Laredo this time last year. She's my daily driver today.
I'll have a report later, (maybe some pics)
Wish me luck.

Ooooh... definitely get pics. Get one of what you see from the road too!
That reminds me of the front end of a Willy's that I see sticking out of the front of a *Seriously old* homestead barn in a little BFE town called Rand Co. Everytime I go through there I see it and wonder. There has never been anyone home to ask about it and I don't like trespassing

There's a Yellow CJ I want to buy thats been for sale for a couple of months, it looks good from far away, but the wife wont let me... I think If I had the money I would buy all the Wranglers for sale in the area and re sell them making sure they were in proper looking and working order

A mile and a half east of our farm is a white 68 Mustang convertible sitting in a barn. I asked about it ten years ago and the old widow said it belonged to her son and not for sale. Her son was killed by a drunk driver.

There is an old Willys Pickup Truck that sits beside the road about 30 miles from me. The guy has his mailbox mounted to the driver's side front fender. It's really a rust bucket, but I always contemplate what it would take to restore it.

For a few seconds, anyway.
