If you think going through the listings at Wagonmasters.com is akin to looking at porn, then have we ever got a RR of the Day for you. In 2002, Flickr user TennesseeWagon's requirements were simple: he wanted an all-original Grand Wagoneer with low miles, no rust, and in running condition. $2,500 and one sketchy used car salesman later, he had his ride. The white '88 Grand Wagoneer was the fulfillment of a dream, as he had coveted one of the classic luxo-SUVs ever since he first set eyes on one.
And the car remains with him today. TennesseeWagon hasn't made any mods or upgrades to the truck, as he wants to keep it as original as possible. After all, he says, it's perfect right out of the box, so why mess with it? All the work he's performed are standard repairs or cosmetic fixes.The big Jeep lives in the garage alongside a '98 Wrangler that acts as a daily driver. If TennesseeWagon needs to tow his boat (which he says you can't even see behind the Wagoneer) or haul a bunch of friends, the 360 V8 gets fired up and out it goes.
Some rides remain stylish forever. This is one of them, and it was an easy pick for today's Reader Ride of the Day. Follow the jump for two more shots of it.
As mentioned previously, we won't be having a theme for this week's RR of the Day, but next week, it's on. Submit your turbocharged and supercharged vehicles to our Flickr pool by following the directions after the jump. We want to see them all, whether it's a home-brewed Civic hatch or a modded Cummins diesel, all are welcome
during Forced Induction Week.
How to submit to RR of the Day:
Create a Flickr account if you don't already have one. Search for and join the group called 'Autoblog RR of the Day'. Upload up to three photos of your ride to your own account at a size no larger than 450 pixels wide if possible and include as much information about it and yourself as possible. Even if your ride is sweet, it will not be chosen if there's not a lot of info accompanying it. Click on each photo and just above the picture it will say "Send to group". Click that and select the Autoblog group. You're done, that's it!
