    This guy sounds like my dad ( world war 2) Pacific. He bought two scouts. used and a new one. Traded my Vec for a new scout. Age 13 (never forgave him!) lol 🙂 Said you might as well drive a tractor! lol 🙂 Great article Dave! I and the vet would get along! lol. 🙂

    Joe I knew the Vec was a collector at age 15. Should have kept all my jeeps! lol The best part is they kept me out of trouble in town. Spent all my free time in the mountains. Lived outside the box 🙂
