Hey Guys, How goes it? I have my own short story posted on Willysonline, but I'll put a bit more in to it here. I've been playing with Willys since 1979. At that point I was a Senior in high school and my auto shop teacher drove his Willys pick up in to the shop one day. I fell in love with a vehicle. Any time he wanted something done to it I jumped. After that I was hooked. Got my first Willys in 1982 and a second one (a wagon) in 1985. They were both sold due to stupidity. I got my current wagon back in '96. It was a basket case in somebody's back yard. Anyway, It had a V-8 stuffed in it (they did a bad job) so part of my plan was to just put enough money into it to get it going and enjoy it as was for a while. I bought another V-8, cleaned things up for the install, sanded and primed the body, threw some bucket seats in it, and drove it around like that for a while. Eventually I put Rancho 2.5" springs on it, 33" tires, painted it and drove it like that for about 8 years. After that I started forming plans. I wanted a Monster Willys, so I started gathering parts. When i started thinking on the axles and suspension, I realized that if i started cutting, welding and swapping out parts it really wouldn't be a Willys any longer. Well, that's when the purist side of me came out and I reversed my direction. Now everything on it is stock. Not original, but stock. Seats, steering wheel, suspension, engine (226 6 cyl), trans, xfer case, Saturn overdrive, and so on. I love it. Unfortunately I now have some rust bubbles forming so i have to find the time to get to it. Plus it now has a fuel problem so it's been sitting for a month or so. I need to rebuild the engine, but it's too much like $$ at this time so I run it as is. Small road inclines are a B****. No power. Eventually some day in my life I'd like to be able to drop it off for a complete professional restoration, but for now, i just need to get to the body work and i'm a happy camper. People love it and oogle at it when ever i take it out. I dig it.
