1944 MB Aloha, Or $2000

• CATEGORIES: MB

The seller lists the good, bad and ugly about this jeep.  Visit the Ad to learn more.

“This 1944 Willys MB Jeep is a great project car. It ran for me throughout high-school (1995-1997), but it’s been garaged for the last decade and no longer starts. I just tried to get it going, and with a jump, it rolls over but likely needs a carb-kit/cleaning to get the fuel going. In 1944, they didn’t make them complex, just durable. Anyone with a week of evenings could likely get this running….”

2008 PNW4DA Racing

• CATEGORIES: Features, Racing, videos • TAGS: , .

I was searching to see if anyone posted videos from the PNW4WDA 2009 Convention, but haven’t seen any yet.  I did find this nicely organized collection of racing images from 2008 that I hadn’t seen.  So, I thought I’d share them.  Note the audio has been disabled.  I have to wonder exactly how they track down audio like that given the millions of videos uploaded vs. the relatively low number of hits on this video.

Playing with different technologies

• CATEGORIES: News

As you probably noticed, I’ve been testing out some different technologies, like the javascript slider on the front page.   Unfortunately, the menus don’t roll over it, so that’s not going to work.  I’ll be mucking with this stuff the next few days, so bear with me.

I’ve also noticed that there’s a number of issues with IE-6 with this design (drop down menu problems and sidebar issues for starters), so I may do a total redesign over labor day weekend.

It’s true that I could use a development site, but what fun would that be.

1963 CJ-3B Berkshire County, Ma **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

UPDATE: Was on eBay. **SOLD**

Ed sent me the link to his ebay listing and I’m glad he did.  “Woodchuck” is a rare beauty!

“Purchased by Dorothy Owens for her summer camp in Wardsboro, Vermont on June 26, 1963 from Willys Jeep dealer E.J. Roberts & Son, Inc. of Jacksonville, Vermont (see sale receipt image below), this historic 1963 CJ3B is as close to true showroom original stock condition as likely almost any vintage Jeep existing. “Woodchuck”, as the 3B is now affectionately known, has been extensively documented, photographed and published (more on that below). Woodchuck, with only 9400 miles (continuously garaged since new and never driven in winter), is in its original Treebark Brown Poly paint (paint code 231) and original green upholstery (trim code 208) on the seats and tailgate chains.”
