How many CJ5's are out here in BC?

Just out of curiosity because I see lots of CJ7s but rarely a CJ5.

Besides CJpaul's

Me first Jeep was a '77 CJ5 (R.I.P....may it Rest In Pieces).

I now have an '82 CJ5. It's basically stock (and rusty), but out flexes most built trucks I run into. Running a 151 Pontiac 4-banger (putt putt putt).

I also have a '56 CJ5 that is in bits and pieces, but may yet live again.

I had a '79 CJ7, but ended up stripping it because I don't really like CJ7s that much.

I'm planning on building a CJ6 of sorts one of these days...just gotta have that curved door line. :rolleyes:

I have an '80 Cj5. Well, the body is an '80, frame is an '82, running gear is a 5.9L/176 trans/Dana300/d30/M20.

It was put together from all new or rebuilt parts in '97 and only has about 23,000kms on it. I liked the Cj5/6 curved doors also. Had to be a 5 not a 7. I see fewer and fewer Cj5s every year.
