2005 Cooper S (Enigma) with 1" lift, oversized tires, aluminum skid and a remus rally exhaust.


2006 Jeep LJ Rubicon--Ruby. All stock except for a 1" OME lift.


The 2008 Ural Gearup, Moldy Pumpkin. 2wd, reverse no mods, just runs. :)


1981 BMW R80g/s completly restored. Too many upgrades to list.


1985 Westy Vanagon. (Rolling Stick of Butter) Biggest POS I ever owned and forever turned me against VWs of any kind. but it was fun.


1945 Willys MB military jeep..all origional. (First Born) Barnfind and was a hoot.


1997 Jeep TJ with 2,5 4l engine 5sp. (Jeep Jeep) No mods, all muscle. :) Miss that jeep. The sailboat was a 22 foot Oday. Great boat.

Our search is not the easiest to get what you want out of it. Plus, I've been here since day one, and remember too much crap.

In this case, "First" didn't work in search, because it is too common. So I searched for FIAT with the author as me, since I knew I'd posted in them. That did the trick.

Dude that Willys!
It was sweet except i could not do anything to it. It was too origional. The only thing i did was rebuild the seized engine. Found it in a barn after sitting since the 60s

Anyone remember the Bronco II? Couldn't find any pictures but bought it for $300, added a 2" lift from a Ranger, 32" (33"?) super swamper TSLs, cut the fenders and took it all over PA. Two tone blue and grey, I kinda miss it now. It was shockingly capable for as underpowered and small as it was.

Closest example I could find. Mine was not this pretty.
