Cool,is that your plane also?.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

looks like my first. It was a 42 flat fender. I milled the head to give it 10 to 1 compression, and added a 2bbl carb. off road it was great. on the road it was just slow. before I added the overdrive it top speed was 45 mph. that was before the 55 mph speed limits. I had alot of good times in it tho. Enjoy yours they dont make them like that now. DR

Nice looking Jeep! When I was 18 I had a great uncle who wanted to give me am old Korean war era Willies jeep that he had sitting in his back yard not running for years. I turned it down because I had no $$$, no time and no place to put it. I've lost track of how many times I told myself since then that wish I had that jeep. :smiley_kewlpics:
