Yep there's snow, for now. -30 last 3 days, +42 forecast for Sunday with rain. Then 10 degrees next friday. Might have an ice rink in my front yard.

Sure the resto could be cheaper, but there's a lot of driveability and creature comforts that the new vehicle has that a resto won't.
Absolutely that's the trade off.

I'm just hopeful we all can get into the new JT we like and still have some coin left over for the good stuff.

Was that one 3 on the tree? Sweet. I have never actually driven one of those, but I have seen it done. The throws are huge!
i think i've ridden in a hudson pickup with 3 on the tree. Never drove it though.

kinda off topic, but i learned to drive stick on like a 85 Dodge Ram D50 pickup. Man was I aweful at first. Good times.

I have. It was smoother in the one I drove, no grinding. Very hard to look cool with your elbow sticking into her neck. Unless she was shifting! That very cool = must have benchseat!

This jalopy must have been something else to drive. Up a grass hill? Imagine driving this in rush hour ...

That was me Steffen707. I posted that picture about it in the speaker location thread. It is a microscopic sized tweeter speaker, just a tad bigger than a hearing aid.
Yup, it's for the benefit of Jeep-Dogs . . . so they can hear the song-notes we humans can't :clap:
