A What Now? 1997 Jeep Fuqi

This next car is advertised by the seller as a “Jeep” Fuqi, but it is no more a Jeep than I am a Jeep. It is a styling hybrid of a Toyota FJ40 Landcruiser and Land Rover Defender 110 built by a Chinese company in the automotive equivalent of a fake Rolex watch. It should be easy to maintain with a Leatherman multi-tool and a box of zip ties. Find this 1997 Jeep Fuqi offered for $4800 in San Diego, CA via craigslist.
