'Tell me doctor, where are we going this time? Is this the fifties? Or nineteen ninety-nine?'
Call up Doc Brown, put on your best orange vest, crank up the Huey Lewis, and fire up the time machine... Because we are about to be back in the '80's. This month we have a super clean survivor with just the right touches in just the right areas. This thing is heavy.
87MJTIM's '87 Laredo!!!
How cow!... It's June already! I don't know about anyone else, but this whole year just keeps flying by. Seems as though there's always just too much work that needs to be done every year only to have it all sneak up and slip by. Projects get put on hold... time slips by even farther... it's just a revolving door of "yup... I'll get to it before I put the truck away for winter". I sometimes wonder how much I could actually get done if I just stuck with it until I was completely done. For one, I would assume these projects wouldn't just linger around. Might just be amazed at how fast I'd move from one thing to the next. Will it happen for me?... probably not. Ever notice one of those builds that seems to pop up and just keep moving right along? I know I have! CC, this month your MJOTM goes to...
Ronbo's '92 Longbox!!!
It's May! Every month around here is really a special month for someone, right? Sometimes that person is chosen due to some long term project that has finally come to a close. Sometimes that person is chosen because of the they're always there and ready to give another piece of their endless knowledge. Sometimes that person is chosen just because they're an awesome member who isn't afraid to stand out. Sometimes that person is chosen because they fit the bill in just about every way ... and those are my favorite! You know the type: probably some loud paint job on their Comanche that you can't help but take notice too... little tidbits and ideas that you just might think are factory but are really just some creative ingenuity... that silly little something-or-other that you've noticed in their signature... Yup! This guy will do nicely!
Red Rocker79's '87 Sportruck!!!
Back to business as usual... It's that time of year (or so I hear from the warmer states anyhow) that things are thawing, the trees are blooming, and things are getting that familiar green color again. I think there's plenty of us that can't help but feel like winter has gone on long enough! I know I miss the feel of cleaning up the yard, going for a bike ride, or just enjoying the outdoors... you know green stuff! What better way to enjoy this month than to treat ourselves with something... well... REALLY GREEN?!
BLUE XJ'S '88 LONGBED!!!
Have you ever had a truck that just found its way to you? Sure, we've all bought a vehicle that we did a bunch of research on... drove a few... and decided that one was better than another and made a deal. But what about those that we pass messages back and forth and try not to get too excited about only to be left in the dark? "Do I send another?" "Do I assume that it went to someone else?" "What if something terrible happened?" "What if it sold to someone who won't appreciate it enough as much as I would've and I end up seeing it in a salvage yard a few months from now?!" "What if?!... What if?!... What if?!..." Myself, I just love it when everything works out for the best! Even if things seem grim, you can't help but keep at it. You wait by the phone. You gratuitously check your messages. You try and keep yourself occupied but in the back of your mind you just know that things were meant to be. This month is one of those stories that ended in the best of ways... with a Comanche, of course!!!
TheDirtyJeep401's '86 Custom!!!
We’ve all got projects, right? Even if you think you don’t, think about your truck like this… Did you purchase your truck and immediately start working on it to get it back on the road? I’m sure that sounds all too familiar to most of us here on CC. This month we celebrate this type of automotive decision making process! This month we can't help but recognize…
onlyinajeep726's '86 Custom!!!
Happy new year! The holidays are over and it's time to start thinking about starting fresh. There's resolutions to make... projects to start thinking about again... other such "reset-button" type metaphors... This month's feature is no different. This month has been one of those long time running projects that you just can't help but take notice to. The kind of truck with that "rags to riches" kind of feel. That "from the bottom to the top" jive. Pretty much if you're reading this, you know what I mean when it comes to taking a vehicle that's had better days and resurrect it... *cough!* Just about EVERY Comanche owner. *cough!*... This month we celebrate...
Alexia's '87 SporTruck!!!
What do you think of when December comes around? Me?... I think of a season that really makes me feel like I belong to something, sharing time with family and friends, and most importantly a season of giving. This month, I wanted to put someone special in the spotlight. Someone that always seems to have the answer. Someone who might not say much, but you better be listening when he does. Someone that shows the giving spirit all year round… in the form of priceless Jeep knowledge. This month?...
Cruiser54's '90 Pioneer!!!
The youth of today, right? I’m around them everyday with the profession that I’m in. Some people say that the younger crowd doesn’t contribute anything good to society. Some people say that all of them think that “manual labor” is the president of Mexico. Some have even made comment that they don’t even know how to talk correctly anymore what with their cellular devices and their Face-Tube… thingy. I think it’s great to see someone who doesn’t have a torch passed to them, but rather pick it up on their own and run with it! We’ve got some younger members here. Someone like him is sure nice to remind everyone that this hobby is alive and thriving!
Minuit's '91 SporTruck!!!
Have you ever had one of those moments where you totally overlooked something and not had a clue how you could do such a thing? Think “elephant in the room” type of overlooked. The kind of overlooking that makes you shake your head because it’s staring you in the face and screaming for attention. I’m talking about a member and just one of his beautiful trucks that turned out just gorgeous and then somehow was… well… overlooked. Long overdue case in point…
