WWII Willys pics

I was gonna post in the pictures forum, but it doesn't fit any of the sub forums,so I'll put them here. This old Willys, along with two planes and an ambulance are outside a WWII themed restaurant called "100th Bomb Group", across from Cleveland Hopkins Airport.

Probably no engine, and there is no gear shifter either. Pretty much just a shell, but cool nonetheless.

The old "Bomb Group" restaurant burned down and I haven't been in this one yet. But the old one had tons of small WWII stuff inside hanging from the ceilings and walls. High priced food though. They also had (have?) headphones available to listen to the flight tower and planes across the street at Hopkins.

no motor in it. they are what uncle sam likes to call "a static display" they have them on almost every base, weather it be army, air force or any other branch. they are only shells of the vehicle or aircraft due to some security reasons and they dont want anyone trying to drive off with their property. the base in wisconsin i just got back from had about 2 dozen different tanks and a handful of different planes.

here at McConnell they got some refuelers, B1 bomers and some fighters on display. It pretty cool to look at them from time to time. the tanks in wisconsin were pretty sweet.
