Regrettably it appears I waited too long to contact the seller of this Cherokee, although the listing hasn’t been pulled, so there’s hope.
If I hadn’t just committed to a $3500 transmission rebuild, I’d be all over this. Talk me out of it, Oppo hivemind. If it helps, I’m not interested in fixing up a project; I’d definitely get this checked out first.
But we’ll start with one. This is a 1969 CJ-5, purchased in 1970 by Brian’s grandmother, so it’s been in his family since it was new. Unfortunately it experienced an electrical fire 10 years ago, but Brian hopes to get it running again someday.
Brilliant solution to a very real problem. $2 might save your life.
Rent a yellow S2000 via Turo to get the hell out of town.
I think I was vaguely aware of this, but particularly if you’re not already familiar with the audacious recovery of (part of) a Soviet submarine by the CIA in the 70s, you should give this a read.
So, upon seeing the movie a second time, I have a question.
I only heard parts of the interview that just aired locally, dates back a couple of years, but I recommend catching it if you haven’t already. Interview with the founder of Patagonia, sounded like a fascinating guy, definitely a different type of company.
Granted, I doubt I can drive anything without power steering until I significantly strengthen my back, but still a charming video.
I assume we have no visibility into the traffic here? Curious why my CL post blew up.
This restoration process is way beyond me, but this car is the first to make me think, maybe I could have fun with an old muscle car.
I’m betting you’d think for that price you were getting a Jaguar XJ. (Or maybe not, I have no idea how much a Jag runs.) Buy this baby now for $42k!
Indianapolis is not precisely on the cutting edge of transportation technology. Our bus system is sketchy, we have (so far as I can tell) only one Zipcar location, we have no rail systems.
Fascinating look at the conceptual shift that occurred when someone finally started counting years in a monotonically increasing fashion, and an interesting correlation between that and apocalyptic religion.
Makes me want to rewatch Apollo 13.
...an ice cream truck on an overcast 60° day. Summer, I’m getting tired of waiting for you.
I don’t think the car is to my taste, although anything convertible sparks my interest. And Radwood definitely isn’t on my priority list. But someone here might be interested. 300ZX Turbo, 8k.
ttyymmnn recently posted a piece about a fatal Gulfstream crash which was tied in part to a crew who repeatedly cheated on their checklists. This is a different, rather dramatic take on that syndrome. (Reposting for the weekday crowd; this really is a fantastic read, relevant far beyond aeronautics).
Crazy evening I’ll bore you with some other time. The rain and cold make for interesting naked Jeeping (after having the window slashed I decided it was time to just tear everything down for the season).
Who had meat grinder in the death pool?
