– This Veterans Day, we would like to honor this Veteran and his Willys Jeep project. Michael Watson won a spot on the 2016 Calendar this year and we wanted to congratulate and thank him for his service to our country.
This CJ-2A to an MB conversion is 2 years in the making. Got the original jeep for fathers day and have been manually rebuilding it ever since. This is a cash as I go kind of project but a lot of time, energy, blood, sweat, and no tears went into it so far. I’m ready to dress out the motor this fall and still need the all important MB tub kit. I have always wanted an MB since I was a kid but in those days I could only get my hands on a 1/35th scale version. I went from building the model to now building a full sized replica. This jeep is my passion and when complete will be handed down to all future generations of my family. I have a lot of respect for this machine and I will do all that I can to preserve it. I’m a Desert Storm vet and I deal with PTSD issues, and this jeep has been my therapy. With a life beyond serving our farmers in its hay day, she continues to serve me.
