As a kid I always watched old movies with my dad. One of our favorites was “It’s a mad, mad, mad world”. An excellent comedy from the golden age of the silver screen. At the age of 10 I was instantly drawn to the blue SUV that the nutty British scientist was driving. “Dad what is that car? “It’s a Willys son”! My Dad and I would laugh together every time that movie came on. My favorite part was always the scene with Milton Bearl and the Englishman in that Wagon. 30 yrs later I own one! It always makes me think of my Dad and that goofy movie. When I bought it, she didn’t run, she had a lot of rust and it was school bus yellow. I was thankful that everything I needed for the restoration I could find at Kaiser Willys making the restoration much smoother. I’ve owned four Willys over the years, a CJ-2A, a few Trucks, but that Wagon is still my favorite!
