Motorpool Mania

The focus of the motorpool has been the 1943 Willys Jeep. A lot of miles have been put on it, and they were not easy miles. The vehicle is in need of some work, and the motor pool is digging in. So far, the front suspension and brakes have been taken care of. The engine was just removed, and they started taking it apart. It will take time to overhaul, but once it's done, it will be a beautiful example of a WWII Jeep!
