I thoroughly enjoyed reading Vaughn Becker’s post about his Lifetime with Willys Jeeps. I have also had a life time with Willys Jeeps!! Vaughn’s story is very special to me!! One of the main reasons is that Vaughn is my father!! We are very much a “Jeep” family. I also have a Willys Jeep and it is one of my most prized possessions. My bright yellow 1962 Willys CJ-5 was given to me by my Dad as a wedding present in Sept. 2005 after I used 2 of dad’s jeeps as my wedding cars. I absolutely loved arriving at the church in it. My husband Luke has caught the “Jeep Bug” and has spent many hours with his father in-law in the shed working on one jeep or another in the last 10 years, and in his own words “really enjoys it”. Luke also spent many weekends leading up to our wedding working on my jeep so that it would be ready for me to use. Luke even used needing to take some photos of the jeeps as an excuse to go and see my Dad and ask his permission / blessing to marry me. So as you can see Jeeps really are a big part of our family and we would not have it any other way.
