Day 24 – Tuesday May 22: Rain N’ Fog in Coal Country

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: , , .

<– Day 23 – Mon. May 21st: From Summer Santa to the Police Academy | Day 25 – Wednesday May 23rd: Steel, Strings & Sellersville –>

2018-05-22-jerry-followme-jeep

Jerry and the MB he turned into a Follow Me Jeep years ago.

Day 24: Tuesday we drove from Hershey to Drum, then south to Bethlehem.

2018-05-22-hershey-bethlehem

On Tuesday we drove from Hershey to Bethlehem.

We began the day with a visit to Hershey’s Chocolate World. It’s a place we’d tried to visit back in 2013, but it had closed in anticipation of the construction of a new and improved(?) Chocolate World. Ann spoke fondly of the the place and her disappointment at not sharing it with me in 2013. So, you can imagine that she was pumped to finally be getting to see it again, something she hadn’t experienced since she was a kid. What could possibly go wrong with that scenario??

2018-05-22-hershey-chocolate-world2

2018-05-22-hershey-chocolate-world1

With entrance photos taken, perhaps the best part of our adventure was about to take place. As Ann walked toward the front doors, one of them suddenly opened, followed by a voice, “Ann, it’s so nice to meet you.”

Now, it’s important to know that one of the things damaged when Ann suffered her TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) is her ability to recognize faces. So, she has a really hard time remembering faces. Thus, when confronted with an unexpected welcome, she quickly get’s confused, wondering if she should know the person or not. And, given we’d just come from the reunion, she wasn’t sure if she should know who this stranger was.

In this case, she wouldn’t have, as the stranger introduced himself to me as Gordon. According to Gordon, he hadn’t realized we were going to be in town (he’s from Carlisle and is a fan of John’s Restaurant as well). Since he’d read that we’d planned to stop at Chocolate World, he thought it would be fun to stop and say a quick hello while on his way to Walck’s in Bowmanstown, Pennsylvania, to pick up some parts for his CJ-5. Ann and I were both humored by the gesture.

1964 CJ-5 Trencher Buffalo, NY No Price

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD**

Seller believes it to be a Tux Park.

“For sale I have I believe a 1964 willys cj5 tuxedo park with 15000 original mileage. This was purchased from the original owner. I had this running a couple years ago it ran great the dauntless v6 ran great and it drove good. The trencher worked just as it should. It is equipped with a half cab that is in great shape. There is some small spots of surface rust here or there but it Is rock solid no rot. The trencher has been on since day one I have the tailgate that was removed to install it. Along with the jeep I have a ton of spare trencher parts there is almost enough to build a second trencher minus the boom. I have no clue what this is worth I don’t want to give it away if interested message me and we can talk.”

Craig shared this one. If the Kelly half cab is rust free, this could be a good price.

body is very rough, frame is good, needs fuel pump, but does run.
I bought it to fix up but just have the time.

More evidence that suggests the rumor of a Spokane Jeep dealer extending CJ-2As into “CJ-2Ls” was true. Thanks to Jay for spotting it. The hardtop has a Cab Enclosure data plate, suggesting that this top is a modified (hacked) version of that top.

“1948 Willys CJ-2A Jeep complete. This jeep is perfect for a full restoration project. Engine turns over freely, but does not start. Needs brakes. It has a hard top taken from a 1/4 ton truck welded to the body. Surface rust and some sheet metal rust out (see photos).
