“Just remember Bubba in your Prayers. …Bubba (Earl or Fred… he goes by many names) stands just behind the guy who stored his old jeep in a nice dry spot in some far flung shed, ready for some aspiring restorer to come along and fall in love and bring the “old girl” back to original……On the other hand, you have those who left the “old girl” out in the rain, snow, dust and mud, and she slowly rusted away so no one could restore it…..Then you have Bubba, a giant of a man, he kept the jeep going all those years with bits of wire, angle iron, do-hickeys, and “add on’s”, modifications, slap happy welds, and the good Lord only knows what else. BUT!!….what he did was save it for the adventurous restorer to remove all those things….so next time you pick up an old wreck Bubba has played with, be thankful. it could have been far worse….Raise a glass of frothy stuff to Bubba, the unsung hero of the jeep….no matter how much we loath his handiwork…without him, half of us wouldn’t have a jeep today. ‘
So “Thank You Bubba“…you saved a jeep for me.
