I was at a car show at the South County Hooter's and I saw this 1986 Jeep CJ-7.  Talk about a beautiful
machine.. I use to have many jeeps in my life from the 1946's and newer but I've never seen a more
beautiful one than this.. This is a rock crawler for sure..I talked to builder Mike Covert and the more we
talked, we found out that I knew his family many years ago.. Back to the jeep.  The list on this machine is
extensive and long.. Everything in and on this jeep is NEW..The rear compartment and dash was custom
made for this vehicle..Set back and read the following..and watch the slide show at the end..
