That's really nice...makes me miss my Willy's...although it wasn't a WW era jeep I still like the way the shape of older body style looks.

torkman1983,

After explaining that you needed to make repairs on the dripping gaskets.

Did you trailer/ dolly/ flat tow it back to your house?

Well, you got me. After I got it home, I diagnosed that the flux capacitor was bad and told them I’d need 6 months to fix it. I offered to take the clearly broken down old rig off their hands, even told them I’d give them $100 for it. Well see what they say. In the mean time, keep an eye out for a good flux capacitor…. 1942-1945 would work.

The Army has a nice Aviation Museum at Fort Rucker. When My kid graduated from flight training they held the ceremony in the museum. In the display for the H-13 Sioux (Bell-47), they have a Jeep and medical personnel in the display, depicting a scene from the Korean War.

You can take a virtual tour at the link below. Its a great little museum.

My BIL buys and sells war birds....like P51's P38's, etc.

Some of his customers have restored jeeps to use around the flightline.

He just 'procured' an hold WWII motorcycle that is going through resto now

Just in case you want some war bird eye candy

Very cool. So forgive my ignorance, but what is the story behind the canvas headlight covers. ?? Never seen that before.

It looks like they have a gun mount on that Museum Jeep too. When I was shopping for my Jeep one for similar money was a flat fender and had a mock [email protected] on board. Reminded me of one of the Rat Patrol jeeps.

The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep
We cannot accurately judge the trajectory of a speeding critter (cat, dog, sasquatch)
Record heat waves and floods only occur when we visit that area

The two reasons I know of.

OMG! I accidentally turned on the headlights during our blackout convoy. (not a good thing when the bad guys are looking for you)

Two things that might be reflective in the sun, this can be seen for miles!....the windshield glass and the silver reflector inside the sealed beam headlight----both covered during the day---everything else was painted dull Olive Drab.

Every stateside Army base I've been on has a museum. Ft, Hood (home of the cav) has an excellent outdoor armor display.
Ft Lewis (JBLM) has an indoor museum much like the one at Rucker.
While location and access can sometimes be an issue, I would recommend anyone visiting or close to a base to see if they have one and go enjoy it before it goes away.

Paperwork will ruin any military force.

Where was the museum? I have a 1960 Hotchkiss M201 that served the French Army and they are virtually identical to the Willys MB and Ford GPW. I volunteer at the Museum of American Armor on Long Island in NY. We are unique because everything there runs, drives and stops too. Check us out on fb and youtube then if you’re in town see us in person. Just sayin
