I saw Matilda on the tow vehicle discussion. Thought I'd post a picture of my brothers after last friday's "mishap" He's mostly ok...

ktn, I'm glad to hear that your brother is okay. It's a shame about the truck. Really not much you can do with these old jeeps in that sort of circumstance, other than part them out. At 6,200 lbs gvw, I'd hate to see the other guy's car. Was that an '85 or is a later model and he added seats with headrests? The molding looks 84-85, but the seats look 86 or later.

It was an 87. He didn't make any modifications to it, but that doesn't mean there weren't any beofre he got it. He also had an 88 version just like the one on "What about Bob?". Yeah, sold it for scrap to the local dealer so it wouldn't rack up the tow lot fees.

That's too bad. I'm sure he knows about this site, but pass this along to him (not where I got mine by the way).

WOW! - I can only imagine what the other guy looked like. I see it's bent clear back beyond the rear doors. Must have been one hard hit.

You are right, it must have been a very solid hit, he went into a culvert at about 55 mphs. The measurement from axle to axle is about 8 inches shorter now that before.
