    This is a nice DJ3A well worth the asking price. When this was built in 82, must of been a hot item, not many guys would build a hot rod jeep in those days. Today, a different story, still very unique, but more of a collector item than race vehicle. Times have changed, tracks are closing, and the younger generation are no longer interested in horsepower. Reflections on ageing I guess, yes, time waits for no one. Always happy to hear Your commentary.
