DONALD & IRENE HOWELL

Don's Jeepster is a 1948 model, and he says, "I've owned this car since 1954, so it's a vital part of my 'Family'.  It was my primary transportation for many years and I drove it in Colorado and the western states.  I showed it in our local car show for several years....here we are at "The Oasis" in 2014.   Due to my age, I have slowed down recently and drive it rarely.   I enoy being a member of WOJC and anticipate the arrival of my copy of JeepsterNews each month!"

Colin & Lilian Peabody

Colin, WOJC Member #892 is shown with "Jewel the Jeepster", a real 'Prize Winner',  which is actually a 1948 but is titled as a '49 which is not unusual with Willys Vehicles.  He acquired the Jeepster in 1977 after trading a 1951 Willys Wagon with fellow club members Jim & Chris Sullivan WOJC #371.  The Peabodys did an amature restoration returning the car to it's original Luzon Red and installed a new interior but by 2003 they started an 18 mos. project to upgrade the car with a modern drivetrain, suspension, and brakes.    Colin serves as the "Tech Editor" for the club and enjoys answering Jeepster related questions, and has a vast knowledge of the subject, often contributing artles to the clubs award winning newsletter, "JeepsterNews" !    In addition to "Jewel" the Peabodys also own a restored 1960 Chevrolet Corvette, and a 1960 Willys DJ3A "Surrey" which they acquired in 2009 from far away Massachusetts!

SNOWBIRD LUNCHEON!

Jeepster Clubs Combine for successful "SNOWBIRD" Luncheon in Florida.

By: Past WOJC Pres. Cleo. Betts

Our 2016 "Snowbirds" Luncheon was an enjoyable success with 18 in attendance from the Midstates Jeepster Association, the Willys Overland Jeepster Club, and two guests from the Kaiser/Fraiser Club. 

The meal was excellent as usual, and the Christmas decorations were beautiful and still on display in the lobby.  Our group photo was shot in front of the lovely Christmas Tree.   The event included a short program by Carl Hering who explained the details of the Carlisle Winter Fest in Lakeland, Florida and Cleo Betts who spoke about his experience installing the 'Top' spring assist function to his '49 Jeepster. 

The group agreed that the event will be held again next year so Kae & Cleo Betts along with Shan & John Kelso agreed to serve as organizers and reservations were made for January 18th, 2017.
