History
This is my third ZJ of this color, but my first V-8 and first Limited. The roof needed some paint, there were some electrical issues, the exhaust sucked, it had a 249 (yuck) and the motor/tranny had some serious leaks. But for $950, it was a perfect candidate for the unibody swap I was aiming to do. Plus it's a burnout machine.
