No cat picture for you today

Here, have a Jeep.

Nothing like that new car smell, heh :). And yeah, that 285 horsepower engine fucking rocks in that little thing. The CJ folks always sneered at us YJ and TJ folks 'cause we were stuck with the straight 6 engine instead of having a manly V8 like them. Well, this little 3.6L V6 makes their manly AMC V8 engines look like 98 pound weaklings, yo. Makes a nice GRrrrrrowl when you lay into the gas pedal too, heh.

  1. Still think my old Land Rover Defender was the better all-terrain choice :-)

  2. Congrats!

    I get to go try and get the Beast going today as I am getting ready to move out of the Weasel den.

    The Beast being a 67 Ford 3/4 ton High Boy 4X4 with a 352 engine.

    Now, Mr. Bad Tux, take that thing out and get it dirty and don't come back until you have a grin ya can't wipe off yer face.


  3. Stu, the Defender is a great offroad vehicle, for sure. It's also incredibly expensive to repair and breaks down often enough that you know first-hand how expensive it is to repair. As often as I rag on Chiseler Corporation, at least their junk is cheap to fix.

    Busted, workin' on it. Right now looks like it won't be for a couple weeks before I can take a nice long offroad trip. But oh what a trip it's going to be :).

  4. Nice looking jeep. Enjoy :)
