Hello! Is there any interest in forming a midwest patrol in the Missouri/Illinois region, or more specifically, within a 100-mile radius of St. Louis, MO?
I'm a long-time Jeeper, member of the Military Vehicle Preservation Association, and currently have a 1951 M38.
It would be nice to connect with others for weekend patrols, shop talk, get-togethers, liquid refreshments, and general fun ...

Let's create a patrol section for you. What would you like to call the patrol?

Greg, I’m interested. I live in Labadie, but work in Brentwood.
Thanks, Steve Ward

I don't know... I'm tossing around a few ideas.
Midwest Patrol
Big Muddy Brigade
Lewis & Clark Patrol
IL/MO Patrol

Any thoughs
Missouri Mules Patrol
Show Me Willys Patrol
Gateway Willys Patrol
I’m personally not real keen on being associated with the city of St. Louis.
I don’t believe high crime, drugs, murder, lend itself well to the FlatFender image.

Hello Steve! It's nice to know there are other flatfender owners in the area! What kind of Jeep are you running? I have a '51 M38, all original... Actually got it Sunday! Waiting on historic plates and new tires...

Hey Greg, I have a ‘48 CJ2A. It’s an absolute time capsule I bought last year out of Mountain Grove.

I’ve done a lot of work bringing it to this point, including building a new engine and restoring this M38 Arctic top from a ‘49 CJ3A I bought and sold.

That's a beauty, Steve!
The patrol doesn't even have a name yet. I posted some suggestions above. Throw some other ideas out there if you like.
Here's what mine looks like, taken at the previous owner's garage...

Can I go with Midwest Patrol for now and maybe change the name later as interest grows?

Done!

FYI: I grew up in Missouri. Went to Eureka High School and Mizzou. I've lived in Colorado for more than two decades now, but I still love Missouri. Maybe I can meet up with you guys some time when I visit my family. There's an annual Willys show in Fulton that I'd love to make some year.

Thanks for the info, Otto! Please pass along any intel on dates for the Fulton show if you hear anything. It looks like the Midwest Patrol has an event to attend!
