Annual cleaning duty Not because it's a little beat up that it wont deserve a clean up sometime
Show that beast some love.
So darn cute..
I just realized that I said I'd post more, back in January. Just thawed these out !
Beautiful Jeep, Richie. That color is awesome!
Thanks it's called " Firenza Red " . Had my distant cousin ( Pro ) do it , many years ago. Gotta get to that tailgate chain install !
Super color. Great Jeep.
Thanks for posting.
That is a great looking Jeep, not normally a fan of red but wow yours looks great. I couldn’t ever have paint that nice I’d be afraid to do Jeep stuff if it were that nice.
Yeah... She's not a Rock Crawler , But she could...... Anyway , 'Rosie' has been in our distant family since she was born in Nevada She was rebuilt well , at 52,000 miles & they stored and showed her, for the last 18 years. Now I have her. She goes on the beach and trails around Lake Ontario. I'll post some more of her in the great outdoors, later in august when we vacation
Oh, by the way, she goes 0 to 60. in 7 seconds 'cuz she's got a Buick Turbo V6 GN motor paired to a 700R4 speed Auto with overdrive. But Alas, our CJ's were not meant to go 90 MPH ! Rest assured , she will retire with me , for the rest of my Time, Fishing & trail viewing into the sunset.
That’s cool that it’s been in the family that long, can’t put a price on that kind of history.
And no pics of the motor?
Theyr're in my media , Mike ... But here goe's & Thanks Brother!
That's a magazine feature waiting to happen, right there..
Awww. Thank You Mike, BTW , 2 questions : 1) Do they pay ? & 2) Do you know any magazine feature people ?
No, and no.
Well, then again, Christian Hazel used to frequent our midst here. Not sure where's he's at in the offroad publishing world these days.

Sigh...... Story of my life ! ( I'm the only one that seems to pay ! )
Thanks , Fellah's... You Guy's are the Greatest !
That looks like the motor that was in a grand national? Had a friend with one it was stupid fast
It's a 1984 Buick Turbo V6 SFI, 700R4 Auto w/ Overdrive , out of a Buick GN. They call the '84 & '85 " Hot Airs ". The '86 & '87's were intercooled, completely different animals. My '84 was stock at 200 hp (203 PS; 149 kW) at 4400 rpm and 300 lb⋅ft (407 N⋅m) of torque at 2400 rpm. She'll do 0 to 60 in 7 to 8 seconds.
