Welcome to the board. Did you have pics of your jeep on the internet at all? I think I remember seeing pics of a gasser Jeep but not sure whose. Unless there are others??? Pop on some pics and if your '55 is a project, start a post in the projects section so we can ride along with you as you build it. Great to have you here. As far as being different, your Jeep has my '63 Catalina Gasser beat. Mark L

I really like Jeeps C's.... drove plenty of them while in the Army & then owned one (XJ). I did see one "nasty" one on "Pass Time" can't remember the engine it had in it but is was full of HP!!!! So much so it got "outta shape" and flipped & roll over ....

I agree with Mark.... having a "build thread" posted in the "project update" forum section is the way to go. Lots of good info & pictures there!!!!

When I joined this forum I started one but need to add some info & pics soon. Actually haven't done too much on the car since I got it. Plenty of pictures to follow.

Looking forward to the Winter months & long hours in the workshop. Lots to do before Spring.

...... Nice to have another '55 here. The Opels are catching up! :p
Mike
L O L Mike..... !!!!! Amazing that the other Opels have shown up here right after I wrote about having a "few more" here on the GHR forum.

More surprising is 3 of the 4 Opel owners here have the "station wagon" ..... who would have "thunk" it!!!!
