Steyr-Puch I believe. They built some pretty interesting military vehicles. A guy a few blocks away has a Pinzgauer, which are unusual to see, but extremely cool (if you don't have to go over 50...

I bought a used top on CL. Ended up having to get a new metal header. It wasn't expensive, and it solved the problem.

Saw one the other day with plasti-dipped stock steelies. The combo looked really nice actually. I don't think I've seen another one in that color before, and it really stood out.

Check craigslist. I got a full soft top, used, for $300 last year. I did need to replace the front bar on it with the updated metal one.

I've been getting really poor mileage lately as well. I used to average about 20, and now it's been around 15. I put larger A/T tires on recently, but the problem was there before that. My wife...

I actually got better pricing on new tires from a local independent shop than Discount or Tire Rack. It's worth it to shop around locally as well.

I have a 2-door, and I bought it when my son was 6 months old. He's two now. He was my first passenger.

I'm getting new tires this week or next, and I've pretty much decided on the Grabbers myself. I wish I'd got them earlier because this winter has been horrible with all the ice on the roads....

Same here. I love having the top off in the summer, but I couldn't imagine running just the soft top in the winter, especially here in Minnesota.

I also live in Minnesota. It's been below zero most days for the last week, and supposed to be brutally cold next week as well (-20 or worse). There's no way I'd run a soft top in the winter. Not...
