    Well, it's done.
    There is a nice garage which will soon show my Jeep to find a customer.
    Price is not yet cleared, I have a small issue with a valve, it was working perfectly, but not too much.
    I'll see with the mechanic. Not a big problem.
    Maybe the shop owner can buy my CJ5 for his own pleasure. I seems very interested.
    I decided not to drive it, asking for their truck to come for picking.
    The truck was driven by the owner's daughter, nice girl of approx 20.
    She was also interested by this Jeep, she drove it from our garden to the truck with pleasure.
    The fact that I had surgery in my right arm, and some again soon, is a reason to this bye bye.
    Other reasons exist, but time to end a very nice adventure. Jeep bye.JPG

    I've always enjoyed reading of your Jeep adventures and the pictures from another country. Hope the new owner enjoys the Jeep as much as you did.
    Keep in touch and keep on the look out for the next Jeep.

    You can't complain about 11 years of joy from the Jeep. Now it will bring someone else years of joy.

    I'll soon post a pilgrimage at my high school, which is one of the 2 for our top people... That was not my choice, probably luck; same school as for our president, Mr Macron... and for many managers and politicians.
    I understood this years after, but when you are 11, you cannot notice that you geography teacher is also teaching in the equivalent of Harvard..
    So 64 years after my arrival at lycée Henri IV, with my 2 friends from the same elementary school, we made this pilgrimage, and met some young people in front of the entrance, as we were in 1958.
    Imagine our surprise if, in 1958, we had met old people in front of us, asking how was school, and informing us that they were here, like us, in ... 1898!

    You know Allan. I run this place and I haven't had a CJ for number of years. :)

    I do hope you stick around!
