Pasty-camming in my neighborhood this weekend...

Silver City part-timer Frank Jackovac readies his 1953 Willys Jeep for one more deer season - the vehicle's last before replacing it with a newer model. He'd better - it lacks brakes. He stops it by gearing down and turning off the ignition. Note the huge aftermarket tires and "Croatian Power" under the hood.

I was noticing the 89X bumper sticker....that's a troll station! :)

Once again, I'm becoming completely illiterate.
What does it say on the front, over the grill?
At least during deer season, you don't need to read anything in the woods, other than sign.

I notice other sign(s), but like I said, I lose the ability to read.

Or I post my request for permission to hunt beneath that black sign with orange letters.

Walt... The bumper sticker (or hood sticker in this case) appears to say "Croatian Power"

I think the sticker says Road Runner

I'm ready for you, Frank. My kevlar body-suit just arrived from LL Bean and fits like a velvet glove.
Love that Willys!

You can't get rid of that jeep, think of all the good times and history you and your kids had in that thing, besides, it's a classic. I know a good mechanic in Mansfield Ohio who could get those brakes working if he only had 3 weeks to work on it. Frank not only looks like a tough guy, he looks like a great dad.

Frank and the truck look great, but they don't compare to the biceps of Johnny Bravo. Frank is
my #1 fan in LP, so I am sending him a "Johnny
Bravo" exclusive bumper sticker.

PS. the bumper sticker really says "cartoon Power"

If Frank is going to sell that jeep, PLEASE have him get in touch with me, I've been looking all over creation for a 3B!

Attn: Mr. Dan Urbanski

My name is Goran Jakovac. I am living in Croatia, but now I am temporary in Kuwait.
I was surfing the Internet, trying to find evidence of my family in America, when I came across your website, showing a picture of Mr Frank Jackovac with his ½Willys½ Jeep. I also have also an ½off road½ here in Croatia.

When I saw the picture I felt shure that his face matched that of my Grandfather. I have also shown the picture to My Father, who belives the oicture is like his Uncle, Who left Croatia for America many years ago. My Grandmother, who died in 1967, had coresponded with one of our relatives in America, but that trial is now gone cold.

I would be wery gratefull if you pass this message to Mr Frank Jackovac and ask him for reply. It would be a nice occasion if the ½Willys½ Jeep could be responsible for jointing our families after such a long time.

Best regards,

Goran Jakovac
