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.

Nice Vehicle To Own For Off Roaders

Totally Impractical But A Blast To Drive.
It takes significant upper body strength to manipulate the manual steering with 33" tires. The short wheel base makes it extremely bouncy and a bit twitchy at speeds over 60 mph. The dual exhaust is... Read More
