Hi, I've seen in many pictures of your jeeps other vehicles in the background. Many of us also specialize in vehicles other than 2As. I thought I'd start a thread inviting you to show off your other other projects.

Here's my old 77 Celica I got out of a junkyard and restored the year before I left on my mission and my wifes 78 CJ5.

This one keeps getting sidelined but will be neat to get it going.  It is a Mity Kat Tractor (crawler/dozer).



After 10 years in my possession, I got it running again, but the tracks are shot.  They came apart on the other side.  It has a 6v electrical system and I pulled the batt from the 2a to get it going.  I have the dozer blade for it and the hydraulics seem to work...amazing.  It has been about 25 years since this thing has worked and it sat outside most of that time.

Nice Celica, Don't see many of those running around, esp. on the east coast. My other other project is a 1964 David Brown 880e 43 horse diesel tractor. I have done very little to the cosmetics of it, but when I got it (for $800) the three point did not work. It took me about two weeks of reading the manual and talking to people who knew about them to figure it out. $60 later it worked just fine. I also added a loader to it, after much modification to the loader brackets, then I made my own power steering for it out of various pieces parts. It took me two weeks in the evenings to get the bracket for the p.s. pump and alternator just right. Then I had to plumb all of the hydraulic lines. It has worked out great. The first image is before the power steering upgrade, the second is the pump and smaller alternator installed. I had VERY limited room in there so I had to ditch the Delco alternator for a smaller one. Also, the power steering pump is a KRC that came off one of the circle track cars. You can vary the output by changing orifices.

Sorry about the picture and I am not sure if this counts or not, but in the fall of 2009 this followed me home. It is a 1953 Chevy cab & chassis, 6 cylinder, 4 speed, Camaro rearend, stock front axle w/disc brakes. Currently I am getting the motor peripherials done (hoses, fuel lines electric etc etc etc). I spend about 2 hours everynight tinkering on it. I call it "Pat the Rat". I know its not a Willys Jeep but I love old rusty American junk.

This is my daily driver. 1959 Chevy 3100 (Apache) stepside. Found it in a field in Malad Idaho. Previous owner had put a 327 from an old car into the truck. That engine ran strong, but the oil pressure dropped to almost nothing once warmed up. Though about rebuilding it and finally decided to just go for a 350 crate engine. Lazy I guess. I found a place that sells 5 speed overdirve Tremec transmissions with the cases worked to fit about anything so I bolted on one of those. Now the thing still looks ugly but it is quite the screamer, at least for me. Haven't had so much fun driving anything since my high school car, a 63 Mercury Monterey Marauder  (that thing was a big boat, but it could really go with the factory 390 and 4 barrel).
Just had to replace the rear tires on the truck. Too many burnouts I guess.

Here's a pic of some of my other junk, "projects" that is!
Nice Toyota, spent some time in one of those back in the late 80's my cousin had one that was about the same color of blue.

Those little Beetle Tractors are pretty cool.

I picked this up in February. It's a 1968 SAAB Sonett V4. Only about 1800 were produced between 68 and 69. Loud, and pretty quick. Handles kind of like a go cart. It'll be going in for paint this December.

Good topic! My other project is still in the planning stage, I'm thinking either a Vtec powered Mini from the 70's 80's or 90's or a Land Rover Defender 110. I'm taking all advice but leaning towards the Landy.

Those Saab Sonett's were cool. There's an entire ice racing league for them. That was a Ford V4 right?

Nice Gale!! Guess there is a loophole in the system now because my cousin just imported a nice 1986 Land Rover 110 to the States from England and it's totally ligit! His is powered by 200Tdi, I told him to find one repowered with a newer Td5. He says it's like driving a tractor with 4 doors, I laughed and told him driving my 2A is driving a tractor. Yours is petrol right?

Yes mine is gas (petrol to youLOL), 86 is the newest one can import right now (the law is 25 years old or older for exemptions). My favorite is a 97 D90 (it has roll up windows), but prices on Defenders are way beyond what I'm willing to shell out (25K and up). It does bring me back to my roots though, the first dealership I worked at was the local LR dealer here in Seattle (a long long time agoLOL), then I worked for them again 2001-2003, but got my fill of working on air suspensions and stuff like that.

Robbie, I'd be interested in the 4x4 for sure, I'm wanting to convert one of mine, but that'd sure save me some work! The GMC burb, is my parts truck I hauled it in from Winchester. Only problem I have now is finding that money tree LOL!
     
Sam, it'd take too many pics to put up all my "junk" LOL, but with scrap prices up alot of it has gone away this year!
