The Willys Jeep Station Wagon and Syncro de Mayo got us thinking. Man, we love going off road. And while we're all about our fast, turbocharged AWD wagon, we do miss our old jeeps. Many muddy adventures come to mind, but we'll just run down a few. Going up Wheeler Gorge at age 7 in a FJ55 Land Cruiser while Broncos, Scouts and Jeeps were literally sliding down the hill. Getting a pre-production first generation Ford Explorer stuck (and cracking the floor pan) before being towed to safety by a 1940s Willys. He just showed up like a white knight, creeping over a hill, saved the day and then vanished over another hill. We were 15 and even got to drive it back on our learner's permit (sorry Ford).
