Willys spotting at Hershey

Everyone loves a Willys, especially me, especially when they're stock.
If you read Old Cars Weekly, you know there were three stock Willyses
on the show field. Since seeing one stock Willys is rare, and two is
rare, three is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most of us. Since
the three Willyses present were a 1940, 1941 and a 1942, it was a rare
opportunity to see the mild differences between 1940 and '42, the
entire run with the round nose.

Enjoy these pics from Hershey! I'll post more cool scenes as I unearth my desk...
