Well as some of you know I've been looking for one of these for a while now. It's a 1947 Willys Jeep. Right now the body has been restored and the driveline rebuilt, except the motor. Its been mostly reassembled and now needs finial finishing. I don't think it will be ready for this years events, but it will be ready for next years. All depends on how much money I can throw at it LOL.

Looks great mate, I heard you had a blowout on the way back too.

And got a flat tyre as well.

I'll volunteer some assist time if you need it. Great job!

Thanks

Sam. Trust me this isn't a small pc of kit that you can buy and sneek in when nobody is looking. Gina is the one who pushed me to buy it. And Glynn knows how long i've been mulling it over. Any help that can be had will be taken advantage of. LOL.

The Jeep will be done up as 1 Can. Para. so I don't think I'll be putting a 30cal on it, but you never know.

Okay... I know it's a gay refferance but I don't get it. I'm not sure I want to even know.
