Almost bought a new Super Jeep but just couldn't take the white paint. Bought a bright orange Renegade instead. Drove it until I rolled it at speed. Then went back to my good old FC 150. |
Good luck on finding a daily driver 677.
: That's a pretty tall request. There are

: that could be considered daily drivers.
: Another handful in the works but none for
: sale. I know of a couple of rollers for
: $7000 and up that you could look at but most
: would need another $15,000 thrown at them to
: make them true daily drivers. Too bad your
: dad didn't snake one up back in the 70's.
