1979 Jeep CJ5 Review


Coolest car in the high school parking lot by far


Syncros were going and PA inspections got the best of me


Cj5 — Whats to be said? It was a fiberglass CJ5 with a small block out of a wrecked 85 Corvette. It had the potential to wheelie-over backward because the departure angle would let it. Had to get rid of it because it wouldn't pass emission inspection.
