    Miltary History Buffs?
    Any military history buffs around? Yesterday I went to a reenactment of US Coastal Defense at Fort Miles, Cape Henlopen State Park, Lewes, DE. They had some incredibly well restored WWII vehicles.





    Yeah, I'm also a Jeep fan...

    I drive a new Jeep Wrangler but if I had the time I'd likely have an old Willys in my garage getting some (a lot of) restoration. Last year I found a decent "shell" near here for a reasonable price. It was pretty well trashed but not rusted out - and the engine, surprisingly, did run. I didn't pull the trigger because I know I wouldn't have the time.

    They are an awesome vehicle. Driving through the interior of BC I saw two partially restored willys on the front yard of a house in the middle of nowhere. And yep, for sale sign on them. And nope, couldn't take them off his hands at the time. Did turn around and go have a chat with the owner though I've seen several around town in various conditions,someday ... hopefully

    Only thing missing on the Willys is a Thompson 45 in a leather holster hanging off the drivers side. Grrrrrr

    Is this more like it? I can't identify the weapon but I do see a leather holster on the driver side. I also see additional firepower.

    Yep thinking about the Jeeps in Kelly's Heroes. May have been a Hollywood thing.
