Henry and his 1940 Willy Pickup

June 14, 2009  •  Leave a Comment
One of the great parts of doing a project like this is meeting new people who each have own their story to tell.....

I was driving by Henry's Garage in Brunswick, MD yesterday and saw his racing pickup truck peeking out of the open door. Henry was just finishing his Saturday lawn mowing as I approached him. We struck up a conversation and he proceeded to tell me that he had purchased this 1940 Willy over 25 years ago and had lovingly restored it. The disks you see on the windshield are certifications of races he has finished in his truck. Taped to the refrigerator in his garage were old racing schedules, notices, and a picture or two. He has rebuilt this vehicle and maintained it for years. He races it every chance he gets. He told me "there isn't money in this, you do it for other reasons."

We had a great talk and I went on my way. You will have to look at my finished book to see the vehicle in all of its glory; it is quite a site...
