  • The apple doesn't fall far from the tree

    It's been years since I've visited this page. My '88 GW was given up May of 2013 and I have regretted that decision for some time. So many fond memories. Well as it turns out my eldest son who is in my avatar picture just purchased an '85. The adventure continues....

              I will argue the apple sometimes does fall far from the tree. I have collected more than 30 FSJ’s in as many years. I’m certain if asked, my father could not tell what one is.

              If I knew I would have a son like Mario CA I might have tried to have one.

              We are Borg, but we don't know it yet.
              We are being assimilated but we don't know it yet.
              Resistance is not futile yet.
              Are you and your children connected yet?

                Hello IFSJA,

                Mario_CA's son here. Still learning the forum etiquette, I hope these 2 pictures show up, if not lmk.

                Im excited to be working on this beaut. The Jeep is currently running strong, leaking plenty of fluids and producing plenty of smiles. I will keep anyone who is interested updated as I plan to be surfing the forums regularly for answers to my questions.

                Thanks.‚Äč

                  Looking good!

                  If it ain't leaking, it's out of oil...
