The Flat Fender Club of Butler Drops by the Reunion

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

Sebastian wrote me yesterday, telling me he and some buddies made a special trip to visit the Willys Spring 2011 Reunion.

He writes, “Yesterday I went to the Midwest willys reunion in Mason OH. Altough we did not take our jeeps, some members of the Flat Fender Club of Butler went there to see some nice willys. It was a busy day, about 4 hours each way (from Pittsburgh). A very long day as you can imagine, totally worth it as shown in the pictures: (top post). I thought you may want to take a look.”

Here’s a couple of his images. See all of them at the link above.

No Updates Tonight (Sunday)


I had a long battle repairing my parents tractor/mower today.  I won, but not by much. It was one of those days where I made 3 different trips down to home depot for a mower belt, receiving the wrong one twice.  In addition, four different bolts broke, too rusted to turn, forcing me to drill them out, which in turn forced me to improvise a new mounting solution for a blade assembly.  If i wanted to do all that work, I’d by another jeep!!
