    New toy

    I've owned some Jeeps over the years (a 51 CJ3A, 78 CJ7, and a 95 YJ), but it's been about 12 years since I sold my last one. All that time, I've vowed to get another.
    I started the search about a month ago, and was blown away by how prices have jumped, and how high the mileage is on most of them.
    Then, I found THE one. 1985 CJ7, 6 cylinder/5 speed, soft top, low miles (108,000), not perfect but in good shape- no rust on the tub or frame. This will be my lifetime Jeep. Glad I found it.

    I like the color combo. In Michigan, it would have rusted away by now.

    It's from here, in VA. I only know the life it had with the previous owner. He and his family are big into Jeeps, and he had acquired this one for his wife. Everything else he has is used to wheel and crawl, but this one stayed stock. They put 4000 miles on it over 6 years.

    Very solid!
    I always liked the CJ's, I had a 78 CJ5 with 258 six and three speed.
    Used to always throw the doors in the back and roll up the soft rear window.
    Even tried driving a few times with the front window folded down, nothing else like it on four wheels.
