I will sell the Golden Eagle, but I won’t give it away.

I sold the rusty Grand Wagoneer for $4,000. The Golden is in much better shape structurally and aesthetically (though it doesn’t have the woodgrain, which people love).

Remember, I own the J10, which sits on the same “SJ” platform as the Golden Eagle.

Oh, the Holy Grail ZJ is hardly a winter beater. It’s a rust-free machine, and will stay that way!

Thanks for the “slightly.”

Also, there’s a feature-length video about Project POStal in the works. We filmed the whole trip.
