I had SO MUCH FUN today that I want to share it with y'all!
 
It was 80° today so I decided to take a break from sewing, parts fixtures  and fasteners to spend the day in my jeeps.  First I drove to town in Gen'l Willys.  I had to go to the parts store because I want to get Arizona ready for the reunion.  The General sported a 2 piece top and cruised at a steady 35mph.
I took this picture with my phone so it is not as clear as I would like it to be, but here is the General parked outside of the auto parts store, while I was in there, I was asked several questions like, "What year is it?", "What unit did it belong to?" "Is that George Patton's jeep?".  Honestly, I could have told them anything that I wanted and they would have believed meLOLLOLLOL.  While I was in the store, I thought one guys was going to sit in it!!  I tell you that I was VERY HAPPY today!!!  I had so much fun cruising through the country, and cruising though town.  I was in NO hurry.  I still want to fix some oil leaks and put the General back to column shift but really I can't complain.  I have this machine basically right where I want it to be.  I got a cool jeep with a cool top and bows.  What you see here is what I had imagined my jeep to look like when I bought it 1 year ago.  Muy feliz!!!  Anyway.... on with the story .....
 
I took one of Arizona's tires to have it fixed and came back home.  Arizona has not moved since I parked here last fall when I first bought her so I decided to take her for a spin.
I have a field in my back yard.  Not exactly the the most treacherous off road territory, but since Arizona has NO BRAKES I don't want to push it. 
 
 
Arizona is supposed to be a "project jeep" but put some brakes on this baby and OH YEAH!!
 
 
Let's get a family photo!
 
Gen'l Willys gets most of the attention so he does not mind if I sit in Arizona for this photo.
 
 
Trudy is smilin' but she thinks I'm NUTS!!
 
 
Nobody around me has a flat fendered jeep.  I keep telling her that I need two so that I can have someone to go riding with!!LOLLOLLOL
 
 
Yeah, Mrs. Top Bows likes'em too. (As long as they run)
 
So why did I write all this stuff?  I just had a great day and I wanted to share it.  I do have some advise.  If you only have one jeep, that is a project, and you have the means to buy another one, I would SERIOUSLY recommend doing so.  It does not have to be much of a jeep.  It may use oil like crazy and have holes in it.  Just DRIVE it!  If you have to, do a Scott R. and just give it a rattle can paint job.  Then DRIVE!  If you do not have the means for a second, get your project in a running condition.  Then drive it when you can and take it down to do resto work in the fall and winter.  You do NOT want to miss this summer!  Maybe a motorcycle would help but nothing beats driving down a country road doing 35mph!!TongueTongueTongue
 
Happy jeepin!

Neat story Jeff, sounds like fun, it barely got out of the 40's here today. I took it for a drive, but had to stop when my nose started dripping too bad.LOL. I agree, working on them is fun, but not nearly as much fun as driving them.

Way to go Jeff!  Your feelings are why I still haven't changed out my rear axle that I got in JC...don't want to miss any drive time (and I haven't).   The second jeep thing.....well, I will have to settle for the 1st and second season of Rat Patrol that I got tonight!  Happy Jeepin.

I'm really looking forward to driving to the store and getting those same type of questions again. Just need a couple more weeks to wrap up some repairs that were started and warm weather to get here for good.

Not sure when I became the poster child for, give it a slap dash paint job and drive? But I like it. Big smile

Today is Drive It Day here, we have jus come back in from our "Come and meet the Hampshire Chapter" open day. We organised a field in the back of a pub to be available for people to drive their classics to, park up and talk to each other.
We were chuffed to nuts - 35 cars turned up!

Here are some of them.

Jeff, I agree with the point of allways having a Jeep to drive. It takes a long time to complete a restoration...even longer when $$$ is tight. It is easy to see many getting discouraged without having one to play with. My problem is I keep spending my $$ on the ones I'm driving!!!

Drove mine to school and errends most of Friday.  Today my son had two lacrosse games, and we drove it to the games.  I take mine out as much as I can, but it is getting harder and harder to keep up with traffic out here. It used to be "Hey look at that cool Old Jeep!"  Now it is "Get that piece of $hit out of my way!"Cry  Might have to put an overdrive in, but I REALLY dont want to go too much faster in it.

Hi, Jeff!
 
 Really cool story! General Willys is awesome but I love too your "Project Jeep"! Rude but still rolling! Nice!
 This last Sunday I drove my ol´Spanish Willys-Viasa CJ3B and a small kid stands at it with his eyes really open! He was there looking quite interested at the ol´machine, accompanied by his parents and sisters! I told him some info abut the machine and realized to me "Man, not all was lost if there´s still somebody interested in these machines...!"
 
 Jeff, thanks for the story and the pics!

Jeff,
That's awesome man.  I wish I could be riding around in mine.  It was running and drivable when I took it apart.  It didn't have brakes either though!  I wish that I could be out riding this summer but I think it will be a long while before I am behind the wheel and driving legally.  I also wish I had the funds to purchase another one to knock around in as well, but there are other things that have to come firts.  Enjoyed the pics.  Thanks for sharing!

Jeff, I know the feeling. This morning my buddy called and asked to go the breakfast. I went down to the garage and it was so warm out I thought "What the heck, why not?" So I started up Frances and drove her down to the restaurant. First trip of the Spring. Next thing I know there are people coming in asking who owns that nice old jeep outside! My coffee was getting cold just talking to them. Smile

if we didn't want stimulation, and exuberance, would we not own these little fun machines?  i have spent most of my young adult life owning big block old camaros, novas, and several rare corvettes, and nothing has made me feel like a part of "something", more than my little uncompleted 2A :)
 
but that may change soon....#12812 is sitting in the barn awaiting her turn....but i may (key word is may) just may have a 1-owner column shift to putt around cincy with.....
 
and yes Roc, you can drive it, and Tony too, as long as he drives it before the sun starts setting Wink

I'll get it back on track!

I took mine out this evening since the weather was great.  I drove down to Rosslyn and then over to and around the  Iwo Jima Marine Memorial.  Then I took it by the Pentagon and finally back home.  No pictures this time - I was by myself.  I don't suppose they'd think much of my driving it up the Capitol steps, though, so don't hold your breath for that one!

I would love to be driving mine.  I traded a tractor for a YJ yet, I have never even sat down in the seat.  A day or two and it could be on the road.  But, there is no such thing as a day or two.  It does not happen.  If I start on the YJ, the CJ project is set back a month, optimistically.  But the title of this thread is:  Life Is Good.  And life is good, if fleeting, as many of us have reflected since the passing of a forum member we knew but never met.

If I had more than one 2A I probably would have a name for each. Kind of like naming your kids, because better than using descriptions to identify each one.

We (the family) have a Grand Cherokee that all of us call "the Jeep"
My CJ-5 is just that..."CJ-5"
We call (pronounce) the 2A the way a lot of people do of jeeps with Willys stamped on the hood... "the Will-eze"

Gen'l Willys got his name because he has a star on each collar:
 
And "WILLYS" on his name tag:
 
Arizona got her name because that's where she came from.
 
My car's name is "Thunder".  It used to be "White Thunder" but that was before it was three different colors.LOL

You know, we always make a little fun at our passengers for holding onto something, but reality is that when you're in a 2A, you need a place for your hands, particularly when the thing is moving!  As the driver, we have the steering wheel and the shifter. 

I wonder if Trudy knows that seat pitches forward. Wink

Here are some of my favorite pix of GW from the Colorado Fall Colors Tour:
 
 
 
When I get back home, I'll post some pictures of what my tires look like after this run up to Tincup pass.LOL
 
Gen'l Willys next to Electro-Willys
 
 
 
 
 
Is that an automatic? LOL
 
I really like that one!
 
 
 
This is a shot taken after Arick and I got done racing through the sand.  We were drifting sand curbs and jumping whoopdedoos.  See my passenger seat?  I had to grab it off the dash and pull it back in as we scrambled.LOL  Next year we need to get some video of this.
This one ain't of GW, but it's still one of my favorites:  Arick, me
 
 
Here is a shot of me sitting behind the wheel of the legendary "Blue Mule".  Just two good 'ol boys from Illinois.
 
If anyone who was on the tour has pictures of Gen'l Willys, I'd sure like to get some copies.  Especially picutres on the rocky cliff up to Mt. Princeton.
 
Here is the link to all my pix:

Every day, I think about what a great time I had in Colorado.

To show what kind of fellows Jeff (jpet) and Arick (Ricco79) are, after trailering their Jeeps from the flat lands of the midwest they each, independent of each other, offered to let me drive their rigs on one of the runs. That is way over the top for kindness. I didn't take them up on it. But I was certainly touched by their generosity. Thanks again guys, it was really fun meeting you.Big smile

Jeff got me thinking about all the fun rides the CFFC did this season and looking at winter.  We drive the jeep all winter long with no top or heater but we hold for mostly warmer days.  We do the Santa Claus run to look at the Chistmas lights and bundle up in coveralls and Santa hats.  That got me to thinking about getting the jeep ready for winter.  Remember this:
Well, if you have not changed your oils in the axles and gear boxes, they may still have water in them that can freeze come winter!
If Jeff liked those tall peaks, he and any other CFFC fan should plan to come out and join the MVCC, Military Vehicle Collectors of Colorado, at Operation Blizzard!  The MVCC is a founding chapter of the MVPA and each winter ( last weekend in Feb.) we set up a field camp at Camp Hale, home of the 10 th mountain div. in WWII.  We will ride in WWII weasels to the top of the peak and see all the snow capped peaks.
Keep in mind, the weasel is the snow version of the jeep.
So, Jeff, grab your warm hat and join us!

Mrs got what she wanted:





And I got what I wanted:


Still have to run some wiring and what-not but I'm pretty excited to get started on the MB.  I still have to finish up a couple projects for some page members, but it won't be long now.

Trudy is still working to try and understand the whole jeep ownership thing.
1.  Buy jeep
2.  Buy building to store jeep
3.  Buy tools to work on jeep
4.  Buy trailer to haul jeep.

Makes perfect sense to me.  what's so hard?!Big smile

If you get a 4 post, make sure you get the high lift one, otherwise you'll have to take the top off, or add blocks under the posts to park a 2A underneath. (voice of experienceLOL) Nice shop.

Hey Jeff!  Gale has an entire 13 page thread devoted to the planning, building and furnishing of his Jeep house and you offer one picture and a couple of sentences of commentary?  I like surprises but come on!  Has this been in the planning for a while or a spontaneous decision?  We need details!  AND MORE PICS!

18 x 20.  I would have gone bigger but as you can see, that's really all the room I have.

  The thing is, there wasn't much to it.  As a lot of you know, I have wanted a building for a long time and I would have done this sooner but I just wasn't sure where I wanted to put it.  See that corn field behind the building? For a while, I thought I might get some of that land but that idea fell through.  Then I considered buying a lot a few blocks away for a bigger building but that has its inconveniences.  Not much really to take pictures of.  I bought the building, they came out and had it up in 12 hours.  Poured concrete and whala so to answer your question Steven, "yes" and "yes".Smile

No, her project was that big pile of landscaping rock you see in front of the building.  I had to shovel all that stuff and spread it out in the pool area.  Then she changed her mind on the color so I had  to dig it all up and today I have to put in the new rock.Cry .... so my back aint feelin' too groovy latelyBig smile

Hey Jeff,
I found your next thrill ride!
I took my jeep to an old time bonfire at a farm near where I live in Colorado.  I had my scout troop there helping out.  We had about 250 folks from all around come and eat roast lamb and a 30' flat bed covered with food.  Well, out back across Boulder creek the Farmer has a field that his boys built a motocross track.  They used a dozer and did it up with whoop de do's and giant jumps.  Lots of banked turns and such. 
Well anyway, I spent the night giving folks high speed rides around the track in my 2a!  I am sure if you were there you would have had more time in the air than on the ground.
I had so much fun I never stopped and took a picture.  Every time I got back to the bonfire there was a line of folks waiting for their turn!  I sure could have used your help!
So put moving to Colorado on your to do list!
Lew

Lew,

That's cool!  I wish you would have got some pix.  We have plenty of dirt bike trails around here and I'm looking into those now.  We even have a a local place here called "mud fest".  I don't think they will let you in without  ROPS though.  I'm looking into it.
Quote So put moving to Colorado on your to do list!

I day dream about the fun I had in Colorado every day.  Not necessarily the "extreme" jeeping, but mainly the beauty of the earth and it's creation.  I am a sensitive man and I love the Lord and when I think about what I saw in Colorado ... well .... I feel like I was given a gift.  I'm there right now in my mind.  I go over my pictures a couple times a week, but mainly I go through it in my mind.  The trip up to St. Elmo.  I just wish I could make time stand still for a little while...... sigh...

Anywho.... Those Aspen leaves are beautiful, but they are only one color.  I think Illinois has you beat on leaf colors.  I'll try to shoot some pix tomorrow.

Some of you guys have heard me say that all the flat fenders anywhere around where I live are all in one place ..... my barn..LOL.  Looks like I was wrong.





Turns out this fella lives in Vandalia 12 miles from me.  He has seen GW running around town and has been trying to locate me as well.



I did not have much time to talk to him but I have his contact information and we will be seeing more of each other.  This one he got from the fire department.  He also has a '47 project.  I'll get more details when we meet.

How many of youns remember "Jeepalac"?  This is the MB that I picked up in New York from F Bill about a year ago.  I didn't have a place to keep it so I left it at a friends house who works on cars.  Last week, I went over there to make arrangements to bring the jeep home and look what I found in his junk pile:


I said, "What are you gonna do with that?  He said oh... junk it!  Needless to say, we made a  deal.  He was happy..... and I was VERY happy!  This spen has both hub caps and the landing foot.  Actually, it looks pretty good.  I'll post more in the trailer section.

Actually there ain't much jeeps stuff around here or so I thought.  I've been in this about 2 1/2 years and I'm finally starting to run into a few jeep guys in the area.

I feel pretty lucky to have got this one.  Some guys (you know who you areLOL) buy a jeep for 300 bucks, strip it of all it's goodies and then sell the jeep for $600.  Usually I am the guy buying it for $600.LOL
