Welcome Mike! Glad to have you on the forum! I got to ride through the fields and pecan groves in an old jeep many years ago as a young boy.....always wanted one of my own, and you have 4!!! The jeep pickups made around 1977 are another jeep I would love to own.

:wave: mikes47jeep! Welcome to GTTalk Mike! It's great to have you here with us! It sounds like you have a true appreciation of the old iron for sure! My second truck was a 1962 J3000 Willies and I loved it! Thanks for signing up!

It doesn't seem too bad until you start listing stuff or start lining it up all in one spot
I've found that it's okay to have it all in one shed, but if more than two are in the same spot outside, or worse yet, blocking the wife's garage stall; all bets are off. Immediate stink-eye is deployed, and I get a minimum level 3 glare.

Welcome, Mike. All varieties of old iron welcome here it seems. We have a /47 Willies as well--- not pretty by a long shot, but lots of fun when it was running! Might have to do something about that now that spring looks like it's going to stay a while.
