Don't bash these guys too hard. There are folks like this in every genre of the automotive world.
I encountered a fellow at a car show with a '68 Barracuda with a twin turbo 383 pro-street. I asked him how fast it was, how many horsepower, ETA's etc. His answer for all was, "No idea. She gets driven locally to shows and trailered to all the rest." I walked away thinking, what a waste of time and money, to build something capable of screaming down a drag strip, but it's never even done a burnout.
I see it all the time. I've been to the NHRA Southeast Street Rod Nats for years and there's as many trailers in the parking lots as there are cars on the grass.
At least that Jeep is getting driven.
