Let the hate mail begin................

You might as well hear it from me first. The wife and I have put the Wagoneer back on the market, again. I know, I know, I swore I would never do this. We made this decision together for several reasons. Its been great having the Jeep again and I was able to clean it up and make it better than ever. I have enjoyed being part of the community again and will most likely be back in the FSJ world if we ever move back to Idaho. You all are a great group of folks and have been a huge help along the way, both times.

I have come to the realization that I am in love with the thrill of searching for new projects. We may buy something else this summer but for now, the money from selling the Jeep is going in our savings account.

Just because you don't have an FSJ is no reason to become a stranger here! You'll be back, the FSJ bug doesn't simply go away...

Sorry to hear, but, I know what you are feeling, I have put up my boat for sale so that I have money to pay bills and buy some more fsj parts... I have been interested in your story because of the history of your truck and the way you got it back, it is a very nice truck and I'm sure someone will be getting a nice ride. There are great people here and I'm sure that when you get another fsj we will still be here. Good Luck.

I'm only selling the Honcho because I am unable to work (on it or much otherwise) well enough to hold a job and bills have to be paid. I already cashed my 401K to play catchup

WOW Scotty!! I really hate to read this, but I understand. I am a project guy also....right now my time is going to a father/son project. We are re-doing a '73 Wellcraft V20 center console for my 12 yr old son. I have a 115 Merc ready to go on it, but boat still need some work. (I have the same exact boat only a '79 with a 200 Merc)

Anyway, hate to see you sell, hope somebody who appreciates it, gets it!

I am kinda at a crossroads with my GW, but I think Im going to do a 'mini-project' and go with a more lifted/stock look. I know if I sell it I will regret it so, no.

Keep me posted on what happens!

What kinda of project are yall looking for?

I knew I'd seen that Wag somewhere before. I saw the ad up on CL today. Sorry to see you sell it, but good luck on whatever comes next.

Scotty,
That is one wonderful looking Wagoneer. And if I can say so, a very well written CL ad! I hope you make a clean sale and are able to delve back into all things FSJ soon...

Thanks for all of the positive comments guys. I really appreciate it.

I had two different families come and take the Wagoneer for a test drive last night. Both were Jeep fanatics and both really loved it. If all goes as planned, the first looker will be meeting me at my bank tomorrow to deposit a certified check. If he falls through, the next guy said he will be waiting with cash in hand. That wasnt even 24 hours! It looks like she will be going to a good home either way.

It has been a good journey and I am sure I will get bitten by the off road bug again, but for now I am just going to hold on to the cash until something that I just cant live without comes up. We have talked about everything from a 68-72 Nova to another classic truck(my real passion). We have also talked about just leaving the money in our savings account as a cushion if something were to come up. Who knows! With as much as I change my mind, it could be anything.

Again, thanks for all of the positive comments. I really enjoy being a part of the FSJ community and will be sticking around to watch the progress on all of your vehicles. Draglink, I am pumped to see how your "mini-build" on the GW turns out.

X2 on the well written ad. It mirrors the effort you've put into the Wag.

Well she is gone. The new owner showed up with cash in hand and after about 30 minutes of going over all of his questions, he drove the Waggy off to her new life. They were a Jeep family so it definetly went to a good home.

No worry about hate mail here. Googly moogly happens. My brain is a bit molded and spider web infested to even remember all the bikes/cars I vowed to never sell but out of the blind side comes a slap in the face get a grip economic doo doo happens. Ya move on reboot Plan A and hope for the best..
If you're not dealing with possibly living in a refrigerator box or dumpster diving and you're just bored... fun hobby toys are never a good plan economically. Ya need to decide what various fun ideas cause the least splash back from the toilet bowl while you're pee'ing your money away. Bailing out from one project to jump deeper into an unknown project is right up there with in a fight do not lean with your face. Boredom/loss of interest has it's price. But it's "your" call,do what works for you...screw popular belief.
Enjoy.

I loved that Waggie...

And the story of it....like "Lassie comes home" From personal experience, the romance of the second time around is not as good as the first time. I'm sure you'll get a new project to get your enthusiasm back.
