    Always wanted a "251". But I have toyed with buying a T34/85 in the past, but these are now out of my price range.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Reg, I think my days of driving the Jeep to Arnhem are now over, unless I become richer. It always used to cost me at least 1000 round trip. The ferry alone is 250. Since the last time I drove there (2006) the price of petrol has gone up a lot. A Jeep will only do 20 miles per gallon....

    Cheers, Ade.

    Even still, 20mpg isn't bad for an elderly 4x4, I suppose it helps that the Willys MB/Ford GP type Jeep is a relatively light vehicle, compared to the quite oversized civilian 4x4s so common nowadays anyway. Your jeep is lovely by the way, has it needed much restoration?

    Thanks.

    I have completly rebuilt it over the years. Body off, engine and gearbox/transfer case, etc. But it is still pretty original. No fake body panels etc.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade , isuppose you could always paddle across in the sbs canoe, save a fortune on petrol costs, a bit hard on the arms though, still the cockleshell heroes had a go.
