Default WWII Willy

Here's my dad's jeep. He has had a it a couple of years now. It's a '46, but the PO restored it to look like a WWII jeep. My dad doesn't wheel it, just uses it a few times a year in the local parades with the VFW.

I guess I wouldn't know, but I will take your word for it.

If true, I'm glad that it is an inherited trait.

He had a CJ5 way back before I was born. He has a quad now, so I think that's enough for him.

How did I miss this... Good looking flatty

If you ever need spare parts I may have some stuff if he ever needs it, I will use a lot of what I have, but I have tie rods and stuff like that laying around I will never use.

Thanks, I'll let him know that.

He only drives it in local parades so it doesn't get much wear and tear.
