My 2 favorite CJ8s.

First up is this 82 copper brown. Flew in to Olympia, WA and drove her home 24 hours straight. This one sold new out of Tucson, AZ (where I live), so I had even more attraction to it and had to get it.

A few months later I found this garnet 84 CJ8 also in Olympia, WA. In fact it was under 1 mile away from the person I bought the copper one from. Showed the owner a photo of the copper one and he said he never saw it around town. I also flew in for this one and drove her back to Tucson, but stopped to spend the night at an old Marine buddy's house who I had not seen in years so that was a double-win trip! I purchased this CJ8 from the original owner and has somewhere around 40k original miles on it. Auto, tilt, clock and tach. I asked the seller about the hood decals and he said they were missing when he bought this new off the lot. Maybe someone asked for them to be removed prior to purchase then backed out of the sale? Who knows...another life mystery.

Couple of beauties there!

Is it because you don't want to rub off that blue lettering on your tyres? Very good looking rig. I bet you can't wait to get her in the road.
Yep - supposed to be on the road last year. Thought i would have more time with the cv - but fortunately for me i have been busy working.:unsure:
And it has rained nearly every day this year:cautious:
and now in nearly mid MAY it's doing this >:(

Back from the exhaust shop. Fantastic job, sounds great. Drives like a dream, worth all of the effort to rebuild. Tested the Eaton E locker and twin stick 300 today. Beautiful.
