This is the Jeep article that put the flatfender idea in my head. It was in a Four Wheeler back in the late 1980s (a magazine that, ironically, the owner Jimmy Nylund worked for). I was drawn to the cheap beater style it had way back then. Under that dirty brown sheetmetal is a well-thought-out Jeep with a Rover V-8 engine. Since then I have been drawn to these cool little Jeeps, like the ones owned by such other magazine stars as Rick Péwé, Ned Bacon, John Cappa, Christian Hazel, and Verne Simmons. You can imagine my excitement when I brought home my Grampy Jeep, but oddly it has been sitting for the last five years!
