> Thanks so much for your patience again in helping me post pics for the GPW stuff . They sold and it sounds like they are going to a good home!!! If you could delete the post that would be great. Once I dig myself out of an unforeseen financial hole by selling of a bunch of my beloved early2a related pto items I am going to buy your second book along with a donation to your incredible Willys site and all your hard work you put into it. I cant speak for all the Willys Freaks out there ,but I’m sure I do when I say thanks again for one of if not the Best Willys site out there and we’d be lost without you and your countless hours of work.

>As an old time Jeeper, I enjoy checking out this site from time to time. Nice to read the comments that many have written. Being a bit prejudiced, it is great to read all the positive comments. I do know he built this site, along with many other web sites and I also appreciate the ease you can navigate through the site. I can even read about old family history. The deal I would like to propose is a ride in the back hills of Idaho in your Jeep when it is up and running. Sound like a deal??? MOM

    Hi Laura,

    Thanks for sharing this information. I’d have a variety of old brochures that I’ve scanned if they would interest you. I can do some research into the company to see if I can find old pictures or more information. If you have additional information, I’d enjoyed hearing it too.

    Feel free to email me at

    I’ll have my kids for the next week, so I won’t have time for phone calls. I probably won’t get a chance to call before the end of the year. Enjoy your holidays!
