    Here are some examples of what it probably looked like 66 years ago when it was built as Contract#12107.

    M37 project ends for RockingK

    It is with much sadness and excitement that I see Sam find a new home😳. About a year ago Sam came to me without warning and plans were soon set in motion. Then came Trigger (1974 Bronco). Sam was put on the back burner and Trigger got all the attention and still needs a lot more. I needed to move Trigger to the heated shop and Sam to the barn. My neighbor and great friend came over to help me and before I knew it, we had it running and driving....driving out my driveway and up his🙄. Long story short, he always wanted it and he knew I had my eye on a 1955 Willys Pickup but also knew I had a storage problem with multiple projects. I have been talking to a gentleman that restored “Velma” named after its original owner. After many years and more money than I would have ever spent on a truck, he decided to move on to other projects. Soon after Sam made the drive from my shop to Kraigs house/tent😂. I made the call to Ron (Velma’s owner/restorer) and bought that old girl. Plans to pick up Velma are next week, stay tuned!F1BBC65E-B17C-4A43-9DA2-E819547656A5.jpgB7EC665F-62F3-42F9-9B33-8E84ABF7C7D3.jpg954C4F42-2C2A-43B1-86F4-AEC917F46DBD.jpg0F8AEAF6-3609-4738-9865-8CE3D49318A0.jpg053FA800-60F1-4602-9BDB-975F129C1F5F.jpg

    Coming soon to a forum near you.... “Velma” 1955 three owner pickup. I have always been a “build not bought” guy! I have a soft spot for old iron, mostly 4x4’s, specifically “Jeeps/Willy’s” of witch I’ve had a few. Velma knocked on my door a while back, but time and space were limited and the price was quite a bit higher. Apparently the stars and the moons were aligned and Ron and I came to an agreement that served us both well. Here are a few picks.

    Update: drove five hours to pick up the Willy’s. After a complete once over, found it to be not as represented and could not reach a number that would work for me. I hate walking away empty handed but it lead me back to Sam and it will be back shortly. My neighbor knew I regretted selling it to him and he was taking on a huge rock crawler build so all is well.

    Sorry the Willy’s didn’t work out, but I’m glad you were able to get Sam back!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
