Good to see it will be on the road soon. Back in the early seventies (74?) my buddy had a jeep CJ5 and we had a lot of fun in it. One day going down Ford Road I saw something that looked like a jeep in the lot at the Pontiac dealer at Ford and Wayne. Stopped in to look at it and it was something called a Toyota Landcruiser. Seems it had been owned by American Motors and had been sitting for awhile. Made the deal ($3000) and had a ball with it for years. Sold it for $1300. Still have the factory manual and my old Man-A-Fre catalogs. Still have dreams that I find my old one and restore it. Have fun and be sure to put photos up when you're done. Too many projects for me (2 wheels) to take on a truck.

p.s. One of the mechanics at the BMW dealer on Ford road is reviving one also.
