I just got back from my latest trip, picking up 8 CJ2A's, 3A and a 3B.  It took two trips, over 5000 miles combined and 200 gallons of diesel.  Worth every mile.  I was even able to pick up two barns full of parts, some NOS and other really good used parts.

Ship of Theseus - As years go by wooden parts begin to rot and are replaced by new. After a century, all of the parts have been replaced. Is the "restored" ship still the same object as the original?

Its a conversion.  someone put a HEMI value cover so the breather would fit.  The jeep itself was a Department of the Interior jeep from Colorado and then painted with bizarre yellow and black colors.  it runs but needs seats and some tuning.

Well, at first, I will be organizing all the parts I brought back.  After that, I will be getting the 2A's running and operating.  The majority of the jeeps I picked up will be for sale.  If you know anyone looking for a nice project, I will have at least 5 that won't take much.  I am keeping the 3B and the CJ5 has already been sold.

I'm in Dallas, so I can make a run to Waco, drop the wife at the silos while I shop for Willys parts.  Then stop at Czech Stop on the way home.  Sounds like a perfect day. Wink
