Young Teen Tackles a M-38A1

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features, M-38A1

Here’s a good story about a young Teen named Ben Zenger reported in the Winston-Salem Journal on Wednesday. At 9 years old he decided he wanted a jeep. He saved up his own money and, with his parents approval, bought one: A 1954 M-38A1 that needs some work. Check out all the information at the website:

I did have a video below, but it auto-started with commercials, so here’s a still of Ben instead. Go to the website to see the video.

    What a great article. Sounds like he’s solidly dedicated to his project. I wonder if he follows or is part of any of usual forums. It would be fun to follow his progess.

    He is going to learn a lot by the time he can drive legally. Agree, the auto play is annoying. It is like the Everready Battery, it just keeps going!

    This is just the EXACT sort of thing that all of us need to encourage and do all
    we can to jump start… the old car hobby in general, and the orphan/small clubs
    in particular are at a crucial point in time as far as having membership overall
    falling, interest leveling off or dropping as the vehicles fade more into the past
    etc. If we all “take a kid to a car show” as the Hagerty folks like to say, we can
    work on making the future better and brighter for the hobby and future generations….
