Looking for Help - Jeep Search for an 89 Wrangler Sahara

Hi All,

I'm a new poster looking for some help in tracking down an 89 Wrangler Sahara. I blabbed out my whole story under the New Member Check-in Thread, entitled "New Member with an admittedly odd story..." if you want to read the background.

Basically, I'm on a quest to try and find and reacquire my original Jeep Wrangler Sahara, which I bought of the lot in New Jersey in February 1990. Since I sold it in 1995, it has been sold 3 other times, and according to CarFax, was picked up in 2004 at a Florida Auto Auction and registered and titled in Thomasville Georgia. Some of my own research with the Georgia DMV confirmed that the jeep is currently registered there, and I'm working on trying to get the contact information for the current owner so I can reach out to him, tell him my crazy story, and make him an offer. Someone saw my newbie post and recommended I post here in the Georgia threads, to see if anyone may be able to help (maybe someone's seen my old jeep in Thomasville, or maybe the current owner is part of the forum...lol).

In any case, looking for any help I can get to try and track it down and track down the current owner. I do have the VIN and Title #, but that's as far as I've gotten. Any ideas? Anyone in the Thomasville area want to do some recon work? LOL.

Thanks for reading my post and crazy story and any feedback you can provide.

Good luck, if I was over that way I'd try to find it. One of these days I'd like to help my dad track down the 69 Judge he had in high school...

Thanks for offering to look - here is a picture of the color. I have pics of the original, but doubt they would still have the same top on it, and it's not available anymore from any of the after market top companies. This pic is for the 89 sahara I just bought, but I'm still in the hunt for my original.
