We have our Jeep! When we got word it had cleared customs, we called Dave Welch who had generously offered to pick it up for us with his trailer, so that we wouldn’t have to drive it in the highway traffic. Not only that, before we even got to his workshop from Connecticut he checked it over, replaced the battery and filled the tank. When we arrived, he tightened the clutch pedal (works much better now!) and even loaned us some essential spare parts. And he made us a fitting to mount the ASI Gold Plate on the grille! After this we drove to the restaurant in convoy – Ford GPA, Willys MB and Jeep Wrangler. We got a lot of looks and questions, and many were surprised to learn the MB and crew are from Italy.
We hit the road tomorrow. Stay tuned!
