Waaah, I like that :wink: .
It's just time for you to stop repairing your useless hump and put this motor in your GPW :) !

I like the CJ and the re-powering with an electric motor...perhaps that is the way forward for our vehicles :shock:
What I don't like is the guy doing the talking....he - does - not - stop - to - take - a - breath.
Also there is the text at the bottom at about 1.30: "Professional driver on a closed course - Do not attempt" ....Does that refer to him putting on his gloves while driving or is is a disclaimer like " don't put your dog in the washing machine to clean him" ?

Noticed also that the front axle does not have the drive flanges on it....probably not needed because there is no driven front axle, but it would look kinda cool to finish it off :wink:

That's Matt Farah, who is really a professional driver/automotive journalist/car critic/podcaster :D

And rude Yves ! I want my tractor noises :lol:
