Still car-crazy after all these years

Ohio George Montgomery’s 1933 Willys Coupe

Ohio George Montgomery's Willys Coupe

I was surprised (and pleased) to discover Ohio George Montgomery’s Willys Coupe on display at the Henry Ford in Dearborn.

If you followed drag racing in the early sixties, you know all about this car. It was a consistent winner at the US Nationals, as well as match racxes around the country. Montgomery even trademarked the car’s name: World’s Wildest Willys™.

I think it’s great that the Henry Ford has this Willys Gasser on display.
