    A couple pix of an HZJ73 on Kadena AFB. It is a nicely done SOA. Front axle is also a high pinion one too. I don't know if it's stock as I am ignorant on most details for these model rigs. In the background is a stock BJ74.

    Hey where did the pix go? I'll try again...

    Nice looking rig.

    Do you know what brand they are?

    Cheers,

    Maybe this is a foolish rookie question, but just how rare are the ragtop 70 series? I think if I was stationed here I might would try to talk a deal on the ragtop just to say I had owned one, even if I couldn't bring it back home.

    Pretty rare. Crushers has imported three I think. Island Moose has another. That's all I know about in NA whereas we've gotten hundreds of hardtops and FRPs.
