Get this!!!

We went to see one of the wife's friends today and she was telling us about the little Samuri that she is using. A friend of her dad's just gave the Sami to her dad. I said must be nice because the thing is in great shape. She kept referring to it as a Jeep [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]and I had to correct her[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. Anyway, she pointed to a house about a block away and said that it was her uncle's house. Sitting in the driveway was a 1954 Willy's Wagon[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]. She also said that that was given to her Uncle. I wished I knew people like that[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]. She says her Uncle drives that Willy's everywhere. I did a drive by and somebody put a lift on it. From the driveway it looks to be in pretty good shape[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. I told the wife's friend that I would give $500 for the Willys. She said that she would talk to her uncle about it. I'd just put that thing back stock and use it as a daily driver[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. Wouldn't it be great to own a piece of history[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]!!!

Re: Get this!!!

I have a sami and a cherry cj laredo and I call them both jeeps. When I was younger and rode around in my buddies jeeps in high school we used to ridicule the small fry samis, but let me tell you my sami will go so many more places than my cj it is hard to believe. I have never been stuck, broken down or passed by on a section of trail that is to tough for the little man and the cj has left me stranded and been considered to nice to mess up more times than I can count.

Re: Get this!!!

There are a few Willy's wagons up here, being used as daily drivers, even a CJ-3A. One of the Willy's wagons even has the factory Jeep PTO winch on the front, sweeeet! Saw one for sale once that was SOA, looked nice, I wonder why I see so few of them.

Re: Get this!!!

I have a friend that just called me last night asking me if I wanted a 67 ford mustang convertable that has been in this guys storage for 3 years that is in great shape. And the kicker is that the guy just wants it out of his 1 car garage for NO MONEY!!! I'll be getting it this weekend hopefully. Finally a friend has come through for me hehe

Re: Get this!!!

Last weekend I made a deal on a 61 Willys Wagon. I paid $400 for it. It has no engine or tranny, but I look at that as two less things to pull out.
