Old timers question...what happened to "Timex"?

Some of the old timers will remember a white jtruck "Timex" that belonged to Doc Fariello I believe. What ever happened to it...I think I remember it being sold but somebody on here bought it. Any ideas??

Wow. Talk about FSJ pre-history

How about John Meister, Michael Baxter...?

Trickc, all I remember is it did get sold and the new owner was on the forum for awhile. After that?

Reason I asked is I'm part of a vehicles/motors for sale group on FB that is based mostly in North Fl and came across a white j truck with a 6 cylinder/4 speed/208 and thought of it. The guy is asking 4k and it looks pretty tired for that kind of money...and I need another truck like a hole in the head that I'm sure the wife will provide if I get it.

Oh and Joe I still see your little blue cherokee around town from time to time. The rust holes have gotten rather large.

Ask you buddy Brian if he went by Sycho15 on this forum. From what I remenber, Sycho15 used to own Timex. My son and I met Sycho15 at Tellico at an FSJ Jamboree in 2003. My son was only 7 years old son when I brought him to the Jamboree in a blue 82 J10 (w/360 and a 3" lift). I remember Sycho15 had a black Comanche and that my son really hit it off with him.

Fast forward to now and my son is 21, an engineering student, and is building a very nice 81 J10 with a 401 with lots of goodies.

For the old tiimers...Do any of you remember J10Mike from St. Louis? Mike had a very nice J10 Stepside and was one of the fist ones to convert to rear disc brakes. Mike is still very active with building rides. He just switched over to '70s Dodge Ramchargers. Of course Mike could not let well enough alone and put a 4BT in the Ramcharger.

I always liked Mikes Sportside. Very nice looking truck.

He's a good guy. When Mike was getting out of FSJs, I picked up his spare rebuilt 208 for my 88.

I met Doc and Timex once when I lived in FL. Wanna say 98 or 99? The bottomless transfer case!

I remember...
