    That's a lot of time and effort to make that out of wood. Great detail, but I wish I could work metal that well.

    Talk about time you can't get back. Those seats look very uncomfortable.

    "BODY IS HAND BUILT FROM MAPLE AND CHERRY 1” THICK GLUED AND SCREWED EVERY 4 INCHES 10 COATS OF SPAR VARNISH”

    That had to cost a fortune to buy that much hardwood! And thousands of hours in woodworking...all to create something that is pretty much worthless IMO.

    No fear of rust, but termites, Powder Post Beetles.
    Not practical at all.

    It would look great towing a Chris Craft boat to the lake in the Tahoe area.....

    It'd be cool as a decorative thing in a dealership showroom, or some kind of museum. I have no idea what someone would do with it otherwise!

    If you get stranded you can keep warm for a few days. Careful with the cigarette butts...

    I would want a termite inspection at the least. Maybe it would need to be tented... :susp:

    The jeep would be pretty dangerous near a camp fire... :kumbaya:
