Posts Delayed until Monday

• CATEGORIES: News

UPDATE: I *think* I’ve found a workaround solution, as my main laptop is working once again. If you have 2011 Mac and have vertical lines (as seen below), you likely have a video card problem (aka the AMD graphics chip has failed). There’s a software strategy for working around that which you can find here.

I didn’t get much done yesterday, due to technical difficulties, so updates delayed until Monday. I spent a good deal of time replacing the motherboard on my main laptop, only to find out that the motherboard wasn’t the problem. Sigh. At least I have my 10 year old laptop still (and it still works pretty good).

It appears I will have to use a software hack to make the computer work properly again. So, that’s Sunday’s task….

The screen problems ….IMG_0674 IMG_0675 IMG_0676

Not good! I may end up purchasing another laptop. We’ll see how things go….

Newest Al-Toy: A Red CJ-2A

• CATEGORIES: Features

It wasn’t all bad news on Saturday. I now have a red CJ-2A Al-Toy (the one in the middle of the jeeps) to go with my tan Al-Toy. I got the red one for $50 (plus $20 shipping) with all the thanks going to Gayland for picking it up and mailing it to me. It needs one rivet fixed on the hood and one at the bottom of the steering wheel, but otherwise looks in good shape.

FC Roundup event hats, T-shirts, will also be available.

1952 4 Wheel Drive Booklet

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

 UPDATE: This was formerly a post about this booklet on eBay. Here are the final scans of that booklet.

I would guess this is an early 1952 booklet. The “W” shown on the back likely puts it after the big push in 1952 to shift towards the Willys marketing umbrella, but not late enough to list the 1953 475 model truck.
