    Little bit of eye candy

    Hey all,
    I'm relatively new here and thought I would post a few pics of my new (to me) 55 Wagon for some eye candy. You guys have already been quite helpful and I am sure I will be on here with all kinds of questions going forward.

    So here is my 1955 Wagon 4x4, 6 cyl, 3 speed with Saturn OD, Replaced Gauges (and most of them even work) Completely redone interior (by a marine reupholstery shop of all places) Motor rebuilt a little over 5k ago.

    Considering the price of a bass boat or pontoon, in my mind it would be a benefit to use marine grade seat covers. The seat cushions on my '46 are actually old boat seat cushions. Unless you just know what they are supposed to look like, they look alright. At least they wear like iron, and don't absorb water.

    I had a marine upholstery shop do my carpet, bimini top and tonneau cover and they did a great job I thought.

    I might never think so, but both Jeeps and boats have a similar bond that ties them together. Both JEEP and Boat are actually acronyms.

    J= Just
    E= Empty
    E= Every
    P= Pocket

    B= Break
    O= Out
    A= Another
    T= Thousand

    Food for thought.
