Antique Cars #20

My Silly Sunday entry.....Spotted in the Pennsylvania Welcome Center on I 95 just north of the PA/Delaware border....a placed I have passed hundreds of times over the years....and needed this time the "facilities". The Willys was the original maker of the famed Jeep of WW2 vintage....the Willys the civilian version. When I lived in a commune in Upstate NY in the 1970s, we had a Willys station wagon 4WD that would get up and down our hill in the winter, and haul firewood. As the body deteriorated, we cut the back off with a cutting torch, and built a flatbed in the back...all the better to haul with. Then the water pump went...the engine, a 1950 Kaiser Continental flathead 6...could not find a new water pump anywhere....put in a Chevy six.

This was set up pretty silly...the let version a testimony to a unique Pennsylvania food.....hardly call it a delicacy.

Thanks to Ian (dales) for your UA.

Classy piece of kit here, all decked out and ready for a picnic 🙂 Scrapple sounds not very tasty, but perhaps it is 🥗🌽 Fine set here Peter.

“Scrapple, also known by the Pennsylvania Dutch name Pannhaas or "pan rabbit", is traditionally a mush of pork scraps and trimmings combined with cornmeal and wheat flour, often buckwheat flour, and spices. The mush is formed into a semi-solid congealed loaf, and slices of the scrapple are then pan-fried before serving”

Red and all the stuff in the back, it could be called a Santa-mobile.

On revisiting your set Peter see he’s also got a cello onboard! That’s ambitious for a picnic, fun.

Fun to sort out what is stored in this jeep!

As to scrapple--- it is always a nice panfried brown when it is ready to eat!--- a fine treat with dippy eggs!

I have never tasted it...and I do not think i want to. It is sort of like asking a Norwegian if they eat lutevisk. Arne?

Wow Peter !! A great set of a beautiful old vehicle.
I'd never paid any attention to the Willy's vehicles before.
Scrapple realty isn't bad for what it is; basic nutrition.

12 superb photographs of this amazing vehicle. Love the all the junk in the back and what a terrific write up Peter.
Don't think I would enjoy eating that food though! Smile
