I live in Wheeler, Oregon. The sign says population 350. The nearest store is two miles away in Mohler. I imagine the population is about 75. Yesterday I ran into a Gen1 SWB owner in the Mohler store parking lot. While we were discussing Gen1 stuff a truck pulled up. The truck driver wanted to look under the hood of the other Gen1 to figure out some stuff about his new Gen1 (blown head gasket - bought disassembled). That makes four Gen1 SWBs I'm aware of within about a five mile radius here.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
There are 3 first gen Monteros within 5 blocks of my house, not to mention the 4 fj60's as well, but this is also the 4wd capital of the country.

With 6 Monteros and 1 Raider in my yard alone...and a Mighty Max. Chances are quite good, actually, for that kind of population density. The Mitsus were popular and sold well.
