    Thank you for the vote of confidence! I have been pulling wrenches my whole life, quite a few years on farms here in Wisconsin. Then I ran my own repair shop and full service gas station for 22 years. Yes that's right full service!! I didn't want the pressure anymore and regulations are just getting to be too much so I went back to work for my old employer who used to farm and now collects old iron. I am restoring his cars and trucks for him in a shop on the farm, which we are still in the process of setting up for the new operation. I'm always looking for new places to obtain knowledge on this old stuff and this looks like a great site for that.

    Thanks everyone for the great welcome! Hope all had a good Thanksgiving, I know I ate way too much.
    Yes I do have a great job, bad thing is I could have been doing this 20 years ago but was young and thought running my own shop was the way to go. Older and a bit smarter now! (just a bit). Tacos29tudor from Eau Claire, the shop is located in Almond just south of Stevens Point.

    Yes Stevie Nash that is the Willys I asked about. I can't seem to find any pics of the truck online anywhere. I just wonder what we have here. That is one of the projects for the winter, I want to try to get it running now. I believe it ran when parked as it was last licensed in '63 but had a battery in it dated 1980, so I have hope!
