1600km/1000miles for a Bumper!?!

You southern guys dont know how good you have it! A few months ago I posted in the Wanted Section that I was after a front bumper and brackets for my 76 Wagoneer. It didn't take long for Scott (levelhead) to get back to me with the good news that he does have a bumper. Even better he is in Canada, even better he is in the province next to me. After a quick chat with Scott and a day pass from the warden I was packing my lunch for the next days road trip. After about 7hrs of driving I finally arrived. Scott showed me around his place and all the cool Jeep treasures he has! He was happy for me to take a bunch of pictures and share them with the forum. The one picture I forgot to take was of his 1988 GW. Unmolested, a real beauty. It was great to meet levelhead and he made the 16hrs trip worthwhile. I picked up: Both front and back bumpers, rust free driver fender, spare QT, headlight surround, headliner, headlight harness and a bunch of great conversation. I loaded up the Honda minivan and made my way back west. Back ground of some of the pictures. levelheads Wagoneer has Power Steps. Very cool.
Yes that is a bunch of Super Wag center consoles. bad pictures. My bad.
