This is my 1946 Willys, we were able to use all running gear all original to the Jeep the only thing that we replaced was the tub. We have over 100 signatures of our nations heroes from WWII to the present including two navy seals from seal team six which captured Bin Laden. Along with Car Fix host Lou Santiago. Lou was on the seal team six support in the eighths. The Jeep has won several shows and came out of the Buffalo Master Avenue Armory. We have donated the use of the Jeep to the veterans of Alden most of the Alden veterans are navy. We were at a cruise night in Lancaster, about twenty people were around the jeep and I asked if any of the vets would like to sign it, a few men wanted to. As one of the men signed it he noticed the signature of a man he had been on the same sub with. These two men have not seen one another since 1952, one lived in the south, the second man moved to Buffalo. As luck would have it I went over to the first man who signed the Jeep and brought him back over to the Jeep to see the man that he served with on the sub. Both men lived in Lancaster not 15 miles from one another. What a reunion!
