The story behind my Jeep is a time-old classic one. I’m a fifteen year old boy, and this is my first vehicle, a milestone in my life. My Jeep is a 1966 CJ-5 that has 36,000 original miles that came with an original snow plow. All my life I’ve grown up hearing stories from my father, my grandfather, and my uncle recall their first vehicle when nothing else mattered but having a full tank of gas and a pretty girl to ride shotgun. When other people look at my Jeep, they see a beat up old clunker on wheels. But when I look at it, I see future rides with my friends and the countless troubles we will get in. I see the hours my dad and I will put into fixing it; we’ve already purchased new tires, a transmission, and a new glove box. I see the hours of sweat I’ve put in picking up extra jobs to buy the new parts so one day, it will be fully restored. I see myself one day in twenty years recalling with a misty eyed fondness to my own children about all the memories I will make in this Jeep.
