New Jeep purchase..

Just got home from buying not 1, not 2, but 3 CJ-2A's! My wife found a little ad in a local paper, and called the guy. We took a drive tonight and I ended up buying them all for $800. The picture is of the best one. It runs well, the body is amazingly complete for a New England jeep, worst thing is the front spring main eye hangars have been torn off.
The others have decent frames, but bad tubs. Running gear is all there, but not in running condition.
I guess I'll make 1 good one out of all the best parts, and part the other 2 out. I guess 3 jeeps in the family weren't enough, in one night I doubled that to 6!

Re: New Jeep purchase..

Monday the River Falls Police came knocking on my door. They issued me a warning for having too many "Abandon" cars in my driveway... I guess having 4 unlicensed (current year) cars waiting in the queue to be fixed was too much for them to bear.

My only regret was that only one of the four was a CJ.
