I have been a Jeep fan since the “Rat Patrol” show in the 60’s. While in the Army I worked in Maintenance and now and then we got to restore vehicle’s for the Gold Star Museum on Camp Dodge in Iowa. This was one of my most enjoyable of Army assignments.
I retired from the Army several years ago and moved to the Colorado Rockies with a couple of Willys in tow. The area is awesome, and if that wasn’t enough I struck Gold. With the dry climate I started finding classic Willys everywhere, even if they didn’t run they were solid. I had run a surplus shop for a while but I am now working on a Museum. It’s a private collection of the “Jeep Rescue League”, thought I would look for 1 of each model, but found there are alot of them…
