Lusus_Naturae Looks like the 'old days' were more fun too. I'd second guess beating a new JK like this CJ5. It's puddle hopping and jumping in the commercial with no issues. The JK would probably get hydrolocked and the shocks blow out on landing - ha.

See above video for puddle hopping.

I hear ya, our 82 CJ5 consistently got 13-14 MPG no matter what the driving conditions were. I have no idea what area of AMC's rectum they pulled the 18 MPG rating from.

Oh, and the riding a buffalo thing, that's what it felt like riding in a CJ on a road that was not well maintained. Maybe this was AMC's attempt to put a fun spin on truthful advertising...

All in all, I wish we still had that Jeep.

Is a buffalos top speed about 60 MPH? That is all I could get my '85 up to safely. And unfortunately that thing did ride and handle much like a tatonka...

BonesBrigade In the '80's you could do whatever the F you wanted....

Jerkstore The ad looks like they were trying to escape the original Jason Voorhees. Which makes sense; Jason had pretty explosive speed back then.

Mr.Dave I didn't know you should floor it while offroading, apparently in 83 it was common. and my lord the buffalo...perfect. I'm gonna drive my Jeep a little harder now.

dpostman In the ad, the buffalo seemed to have a smoother ride, I think the girl in the CJ got a whiplash.

Nah, no such thing as inflation, right? LOL

Try to find that same 1983 CJ-7. In perfect condition today, it will probably be more than that $10k original sticker price

Blastek I love all the options like carpet, doors, and rear seats
08-01-2013 04:18 PM
joeuncool I gotta get me a set of those "Styled Steel Wheels" for $258.

dorman40802 That commercial is epic!

Didn't know buffalo riding was something people actually did...

haystack Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I've only had two jeeps...an '83 CJ-7 and now a 2013 JKUR. Loved/love them both!
07-31-2013 11:43 PM
traitor08 I think its funny, mpg 18 back then. Same now.

Burger16b Try to find a vehicle brand new for under $10,000 can't get one in the USA. And motorcycles ect don't count. Closest is like $11,000 and dealers don't even stock them.

River Hill 18MPG back then. Not much better now
