    There was one at a dealer I passed in Greeley a while back.

    Looks more like an in-town cruiser with that color and those wheels and tires, than an off road Jeep.

    I'm thinking it's old enough where James & Jen might add it to their collection ;-) This one might stay streetable - so no wrenching for James.

    It's a 2wd VJ Jeepster...cool looking early phaeton body style, but OEM engines were pretty anemic. I always thought one of those with an sbc283 or early Buick 215 V8 and 4 or 5 speed w would be a fun cruiser. They have an odd frame design - sort of a stamped sheet metal frame (not channel) in an X pattern - they don't stand up to heavy hot rodding.

    Our snowpack is still way below normal....dry fire summer is looking probable. Skiing at resort has gotten better since presidents day, but it's going to take a record march to get us anywhere near normal.

    Speaking of Buick 215 V8....this looks like a good deal!
