Re: old blue

I really dig the Battlestar Galactica T Shirts. I would have loved to have one of those back in the day

Re: old blue

I hope you get your slots. They were born to be 8-lug. Others look alright, but they look best in 8-lug or on the rear of a front engine rail. Now to see one of these 8-luggers with slots pushing a rear engine rail with slots...that us too meakin' fruch!! As cool as that shot of the C/20 and race Jeep. Awesome pics

Re: old blue

I have been looking and looking for a pic of them together.
Mom has been digging thru old photo albums for me.

And I've found a p/n for 17x8 slot mag with a blank as in not drilled bolt pattern and the correct hub size.

Just need to pony up the $1000+ for wheels and the machine work for them.
Plus tires.

Re: old blue

Old trucks are fun they said.

Right rear brake sounded terrible, and was really bad.

And it's east coast heritage is really showing.

Right rear cab corner had a rag in it, pulled it thru the inside.

Goodness what a mess

Wow, what an awesome story!

What’s the details/specs on the Jeep?

Looks like it was preserved extremely well!

Re: old blue

Just got the DMV renewal today.

Still such a neat feeling driving this old truck. Even better teaching my daughter to drive in it.

Re: old blue

The story just got better. Back on the road and your daughter driving it. I don't do all that newfound "generation" stuff people started using to identify body styles. I say the years same as always, such as 67-72s. But that's a 3rd generation C/20 for sure!

She's claimed it already, but our sonoma will do for high school abuse. If she's anything like me it will have to be General Lee tough.

Re: old blue

Yeah buddy! Love the vintage race scene shots. The truck doesn't just have it's own history, it's part of Baja 500 history. And if I could go back to the kid I was back then just learning about that race I would be able to say, "I know that dude"

Re: old blue

Hoarder is a largely misused word. I prefer collector. Or how about curator or purveyor? Coould you please pass the French's?
