The last Eliminator on Mike's list is my 69 R-code CJ with 62k original miles. It has just been relisted on ebay. The last time the auction ended the same day as hurricane Irene hit the East Coast and I think it may have hurt the auction due to many people not having electrical power or internet service in the northeast. The link to the new auction with a lower reserve is below:

What is going on with this Blue car on ebay? Has the tan interior. I could have sworn that I saw this thing sell about a month ago in its' last listing.

Yeah :)

I think its funny that my daughter (she's 9) now knows the correct names for the colors when I show her pics of cars i'm drooling over. She has no interest in Grabber Blue / Competition Blue at all. Niether does Momma. They just dont like that blue. Or yellow either. Or green. /sigh... Good thing it won't be thier car, eh :)

Y'know, something close to Panther Pink would look pretty [email protected] with the black Eliminator treatments... But it would take a man who is very secure in his manhood to drive something like that, IMO. Either that or you could just say "Oh, it's my wife's car >.>" or maybe just wear a big ol' pimp hat whenever you drive it! LOL!
But yeah, I've always loved Grabber Blue :)
