That was a cool video. Those poor drivers were taking a beating though.

I love how he drove up the side of the highway. And the apparant lack of safety belts. Good things of the 70.

After re-watching, you are right. I can see the lap belts. As the driver lunges forward but stays seated. I miss the old days. Like when I rode in the floor board of a Datsun pickup from Califonrial to Indiana when I was like 3. Try doing that now a days.

My first Jeep was a 79 CJ-5 Renegade with Levi interior. I wished I still had it.

28 mpg in an 81 CJ? That's almost TWICE what my TJ gets. So much for truth in advertising.

I swear the voice in the '73 commercial is the same guy that narrated all those school videos we watched in the late 70's early 80's, I can almost hear the projector skipping and making his voice all funny!
