Thank you both for all the inspiration, and I will let this one speak for itself.

RK has some nice cars, but they also have their share of "drivers" that are not like the Willy's pictured above.

It does provide some inspiration for Donn.........are you out there??????/////

Beautiful car to be sure but I think I would like it more without the side graphics. To me they just don't fit the shape of the car. Maybe it's just me.

Interesting part of the video - there's been a lot of debate about the pronunciation of "Willys," and I see the video narrator (who should know what he's talking about) goes with "Will-eez," while I grew up hearing it "Willis."

A check with Wikipedia reveals: "Willys (correctly pronounced "Will-is", but almost universally as "Will-eez")..." I guess tradition determines correct usage.

Is it just me or does the orange on the doors seem a little bit darker than the rest of the car?

Tradition is wrong in this case. The man's name is pronounced "willis." As in "Whatchoo talkin' bout, Willis?"

Gorgeous car. Thanks for sharing. I had to watch it more than once.
