My Willys CJ-2A project has commenced. And while I’ve already shown its copious flaws in my intro post, now it’s time for an in-depth look. If there’s anything you’d like to see, hop on FB Live and start commenting! Just don’t say anything mean about the Willys. He’s a bit self conscious, especially about his welded…
Jeep’s Grand Wagoneer from the 1980s and early ‘90s got the nickname “woody” for its vinyl faux-wood side panels, but this awesome Willys CJ-5 is the real woody. The whole body and interior are made of real, actual wood!
Today is the 72nd anniversary of the Normandy Landings, also called D-Day. To commemorate this historic day, I’m taking a ride in a 1946 Willys CJ2a, a descendant of one of World War II’s most instrumental weapons, the Willys MB “Jeep.”
Taking the paths you choose, learning to work with the car as a family, and discovering the Southwest off-road in the 1950s before people really did that. That’s what makes this Willys Jeep CJ so special to Larry Shank.

This 1944 Willys Jeep in classic US military livery was stolen from the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, England where it was parked out front for a show. It belonged to a 73-year-old man who got his hands on it and restored after his father had actually driven it in World War II.
Is buying a Willys Wagon that's been sitting in a garage since 1978 a good idea? As long as you live close to a desert, I say hell yeah!

Most of us know something of the Jeep's origin story, with the military sending out a list of requirements and an insane 49-day deadline, and only plucky little desperate American Bantam actually got a vehicle in by the deadline. But what's less known is the insane vehicle that inspired it all: the Belly-Flopper.
Welcome to Little Car in the Big City, where I highlight fascinating cars I found walking around a town that is known for being bigger than everything else, but where every car is fighting to stand out: New York, New York.
Most people can appreciate the beauty of a vintage Jeep. They aren't beauty queens or speed demons, but it seems hard to argue with their utilitarian charm.
Watching a vehicle with two wheels to the sky is a pretty fail-safe way to bring a smile to the face of any car lover. While it's usually purpose built vehicles or super powerful drag cars that are capable of lifting the front end, every once in a while you can get great wheelies from an unexpected source like the…
You have surely heard someone say they don't build ‘em like they used to? Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Jeep Pickup is a perfect example of how they used to build ‘em, but will its modern-day price give you the willies?
What would you do if you came upon a well used and slightly rusted vintage SUV? While some might just get it running and drive it, the owner of this vintage Willys Wagon decided two doors and an inline six just wouldn't do. The lifted and stretched four door Willys seen here is the unique result. Featuring a modern…
