Within the past few weeks on my commute back home, I saw a restored 1950 Willys pick-up and just a day later, an entire family of five tooling around a restored 2A.
Last summer, while driving my 1943 Jeep to the post office and was approached by a guy claiming he had an original jack for my ride. Oh sure I thought, every day a quick jaunt into town will provide an encounter with a man claiming to have one of the harder to find pieces of Jeep jewelry. After reluctantly going to his home, fully expecting a bright green Nissan Stanza tire jack. To my surprise -- there it was -- with correct O.D. chipped paint and in fully working order. Funny thing, I drive past this place all the time, only to find out it was sourced locally at a garage sale.
We've all traveled great distances to obtain vehicles and parts. But sometimes they are there in front of you.
We'll talk more down the road.
