    Thanks Steve! I could sure use a summer ride right about now. I absolutely love these old Willy's Pictures. I appreciate you posting them. It was -18 this a.m. in MN. I am assuming you were colder? I cannot wait to get the Jeep out!!! Winter *****!

    Hi Kirk. The first pic is just about north of Rene - on
    New Britain. Second is 1948 on Saipan, third is a
    Bill Mauldin, and last, repairs in the field.

    Yeah, I can't wait for warmer weather either ! Indeed
    we've been colder and set some records for this
    time of year. This past few days we were at -23
    Celsius with windchill making it around -30C.

    I know you are still on the Farenheit scale.
    -23C is like -9F.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Sad news about my CJ. My nephew (hot rod/custom
    builder and old car fanatic) while checking her over
    at his shop, discovered (among other things)
    that I have a broken frame, which had been
    broken and repaired once before.
    She'll need major work and about $5,000 to bring
    her up to road worthiness again, so back into
    the garage she'll go.

    Shame really, because "Froggy" now looks like
    you could get in and drive her away.


    New pics to follow in a few days.........
    Regards,

    I was under mine tonight fixing a leaky fuel valve...Waiting for the 70's this weekend! Going to tear it up for a long cross country ride. Sorry about your baby. There is always a tinker or ten to deal with.

    Lol, the '42 MB should run - battery fully charged this week.
    Fingers crossed ! ( That's the thing about these vintage
    jeeps, there's always a leak somewhere, and an older
    component that might cause problems. )

    Hope the temperature gets to 70 degrees for you Kirk.
    There's nothing like a jeep ride in fair weather.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    I remember, back in the early 60's, they used to advertise "Surplus Jeeps $65". I never believed it, so I went down to a sale one day outside of Chicago. They had a field of, maybe, 150-200 Jeeps. Everything from WWII to Korean-era. And, yes-they were,indeed, your choice for $65. I took a walk down the rows with the guy there and Every one we passed, he'd have a comment.."Cracked block"..."Locked up gear box"..."No brakes"..."Frozen axle"....in the end, there wasn't One Jeep that would have been practical or affordable to pick up and fix. Never did get one...
