Jambo #0597 (M-3)

Owner: Yannis M. Makarigakis

Location: Pireas, Greece

Owner Statement:

My name is Yannis M. Makarigakis and I live in Pireas, Greece since 1989. I was trying to locate a fan club like yours for several years, and finally accomplished it. I own a 1982 Jamboree #0597, since 1988. I bought my Jamboree in Boston in 1988, second hand. I don't have the certificate and I would like to have one. I will never sell my Jamboree, therefore I'm trying to keep it in a good condition, although it needs some restoration. I have changed the engine, the original 6 cyl was a lemon in fuel and power, this one, a Cherokee 92, is pretty good, 6 cyl, 4000 cc, auto transmission. The 5 speed was breaking every six months. I still have the spare tire over, the saddle bags and the covers of the seats, although I don't use them. I have around 150.000 miles on it. Mechanically is almost perfect now, but the body, especially the driver and co-driver floor needs to be changed. See the first winters in Boston rusted it. The color now is black and tan roof. I believe that mine came with the hardtop and hard doors because it would not be drivable in Boston, besides it has A/C, and the original color of the doors was a perfect match with the rest. In order to maintain it in mint condition after the restoration I will have to drive it at minimum. I have already decided what my next car will be, the 2005 2006 Liberty Renegade, it stands out of the rest.

In Pireas,  24 June 2007
Sincerely yours
Yannis M. Makarigakis
