Jim Olsen is a truely addicted to cars like myself.  In addition to his Willys he also has a beautiful

"Old School T-Bucket" he just recently finished after owning the car for 35 years!  Plus he had a

really nice '33 Plymouth Coupe which he just recently sold.

 

 

Jim also had a '38 Willys Sedan that he sold in order to finish his '38 Willys Truck.

The sedan is nice , but I think finishing the truck was the right choice !!
