The First Drive

R was true to his word. After checking the gears (to make sure that R was reverse, and 1st, 2nd, & 3rd were good, I got to drive the Jeep FIRST! I drove around the block and back, then R got his turn. Wow! What a thrill!

That's right, no seatbelts, no doors, and no windshield! Good thing there wasn't any traffic because the brakes are a little tough, too! See that look on his face? That about sums up his attitude when working on the Jeep! (And he calls this a hobby!)

Oh, and in case you're concerned for our well-being, I should let you know that we would NOT drive it like this on any major road! That would require at least a windshield! Ideally, we will also install roll bars and modern seat belts (belts were not standard when this jeep was made).
