    Your neighbours must love you when you start these beasts up on the Sunday morning paper run.
    Keep up the good work.
    Also excellent photography, makes a change to mobile phone pics.

    Cheers Sean, glad you enjoyed the ride so far.
    I don't have the build of the Willys on here at the moment, not sure it would fit in.

    The straightened body sat, or rather hung[from the roof] of Pete Goddards workshop for some time. I think molds were taken from it and the body of a car a mate had came from it. And I think it ended up as a street car.

    The motor was used by Pete in his funny and I think it then saw action in
    Ronnie Picardos funny. Last I saw of it was late 80's when a local bloke had it and was putting it in his street Cuda. I gather it was nicked, well most of it. The block is sitting in mates workshop.

    Geez, I bet Bob and Bruno are crying in their cocoa, what a bloody shame that was one beast of a car, used to love the way it got twisted all out of shape with the front end high in the air on launch.....
