June 14, 2014 I was with my buddy on a motorcycle day trip. My good friend had just got his motorcycle license and wanted to get some riding time in on his new Yamaha Bolt. I was more than willing to make that kind of sacrifice.
We had made a quick stop for a break and I noticed a guy and his wife ready to climb into and drive off in a restored 1942 Willys Jeep. I quickly asked if I could take a photo and he and his wife actually got out of the Jeep so I could get a picture. I certainly did not expect him to do that and I made sure to thank him for the chance to quickly look it over. My uncle Ben had one of these on a farm near Tomahawk, Alberta and I first learned to drive on it. I would love to own one of these. I also would have liked to ask the owner about the Jeep however he had just enough time to allow me to get the one photo.
