Hello,

My name is Tom. I live in coastal NC and we just picked up a 63 wagon a couple of months ago. I know very little about Willys so I am looking forward to meeting/learning from you, and I hope I can contribute something as well from time to time ( even if it is only how NOT to do something). I will post a pic as soon as I figure it out. I have been looking around for wagon info ever since I got mine so I am very glad that this site was started. I am sure I will have a ton of questions.

Welcome Tom- Glad you found the site. There is a thread on posting pictures in the general discussion that may help you. Let me know if you can't figure it out and I'll help out.

Thanks.

I put one pic in the gallery for now. I have to go through and pull some more for there for my "before" pics.

I also have to resize it for my avatar until I can take a better one. I have not been able to figure that out yet.

If you need help creating your avatar, let me know. If you want to e-mail me the pic you want to make into an avatar, I can do it for you.

I'm in Wilmington. Been here since 87. I love it here. We can drive on the beach down in Carolina Beach and I like to surf so that is what I plan on useing the wagon for. I like driving something a little different, had a CJ8 Scrambler and a Jeepster Commando that I used to use down there as well. People used to ask me about them all the time. Can't wait to see the response on the wagon! I think it has the potential to be the coolest surf buggy yet.

Hello neighbor, maybe we all could go to the beach together with our Willys. Have you mapped yourself yet? Good luck with your project as well.

Hi,

mapped the other day. Going to the beach sounds like a plan. Some friends and I do an outer Banks surf trip every year in the fall. Among that group is a CJ8, a wagoneer in the midst of a diesel conversion, and a old Land Rover. Our goal is to make the trip in all of these for next year. You are welcome to join in.

I have seen 2 other wagons and a truck here in town and I heard that there is 1 more wagon but have not seen it yet. That would be 4 counting mine! Hopefully I can track these guys down. If you are ever gong to be up this way let me know, we can meet for dinner or something.
