    Jeeps as landmarks

    Local guy with a 47 Power Wagon used on family ranch and I've been bugging him for years to sell. Finally got a "maybe" out of him and here comes this infamous Caldor fire and no more Power Wagon, along with barns and pretty much everything but the house.

    Postal drive thru fun

    Drive thru story: We're in a Taco Bell drive thru (only way to access food) at about 11:30 pm and after the end of the local races. Two guys in front of us walking through as their only transportation is a large truck/trailer with a race car on it not able to fit in drive thru. Lady in Taco...

    Good read-

    I've been building/restoring vehicles from an early age and can appreciate what Jay's saying here. As times change sometimes people will describe an asking price of a "build" as having too much "sentimental value" without realizing how much old school talent was required in rebuilding the...

    Where do you jack up your Jeep

    Another vote for jackstands. I dated a lady in my early 20's, she was under her car with only a floor jack, and down it came. End of lady I dated in my early 20's.
