Greetings from Snohomish, Washington - USA, where Jeeps don't
rust , they mold...
The original FSJ are still there and have not been migrated to this site yet.
These pages are the first and the longest running Full Size Jeep pages on the
internet. The FSJ pages were started on John's homepage on Compuserve,
moved to the wagoneers.com and then a larger version appeared for about
11 months on a commercial site until returning to the wagoneers.com. Now
they will appear here. There have been parallel FSJ pages, but these
are the original.
There is one slight exception concerning the "first": the zynet.com pages. Those
pages were created about the same time but disappeared off the internet. John's
pages were placed on compuserve about the same time, and were in fact a copy
of some of the pages created there by Kevin Highsmith.
The FSJ-list got it's start in 1995 when John Meister and Mike Lacher met on
rec.autos.4x4 and started talking about Wagoneers. Within a few months there
were a dozen other folks involved and we kicked off the first list. The
list moved from server to server and in 1997 split into two lists. The list
that John is currently active on is the one on digest.net.
