Too bad mine wasn't ready for the Willys America Open House Yesterday.
Very cool panel with a teardrop.
Not all are shiney or OD.
Some of the "projects/parts" laying around the property.
Not sure what he does with this large crane, but it sure is anchored throughout the property.
Ok, this was a strange vehicle.
Gearshift, transfer case, what's the 3rd shifter for?
Vehicles that worked for a living and currently retired......for now.
A wrecker, looks to be in need of a wrecker.
"Welcome to Fantasy Island" kind of jitney.
Unusual 4 door wagon with rail attachment.
Transfer case in-out/hi-lo. Tobz has a unique wagon in FM that explains it pretty well.
Not just one 4 door wagon, but he had two that I could find.
He restores and repairs them, but don't judge a yard by it's junk. Here's his very clean shop.
A couple of projects he's working on.
I sure want this disc brake/rack and pinion setup.
Cool gas pump.
A cable car?
Time for lunch.
Hmmm, new project? Wonder how much? Mrs. V says no!
Guess I'll have to look at things from afar.
It was a beautiful day and I got to see alot of neat vehicles to give me hope for my '56 pickup.

I like this one.
That tracked vehicle is a WW2-vintage M7 Allis Chalmers snow tractor.
Willys that still work for a living
- Real de Catorce, SLP Mexico
Friends, what you are looking at is an Allis Chalmers M7 Snow Tractor, built during WW2 for search and rescue work in the great white north. Willys L-134 engine, Warner T-84 transmission, Spicer 18 transfer case. 291 built in 1943, maybe 30 left in the world.
It's supposed to have a pair of surfboard sized skis under the front wheels, and came with a enclosed and heated tagalong sled for ambulance work.
Oh, I want - no, no, I COVET that machine.
If anyone is looking to buy I am pretty familiar with this one.
It's up on ebay
