My Willys M38The last of the "Flatfenders" I am always fascinated by the "Military Jeep" that I dreamed of having one ever since I was a young boy. I grew up surrounded by these ‘flatfenders’. My father had one and used it as his daily driver. I also learned how to drive from it. That jeep continued to serve us in our farm, unfortunately, one of our farm employee met an accident and our jeep was a total wreck.On December 28, 2002, that dream became a reality. I bought a Jeep from my father's friend who is a Jeep enthusiast. This is the start of my first project - a Willys M-38. On July 2003, I got a job in Malaysia that puts on hold my jeep project.Through the months that I was away, my brother was able to meet some Jeep enthusiast from Cavite and later on from Bulacan. This is one of the best things that happened and was really a big help for our project. After saving enough, I called my brother on March 2004 and told him to start our project. Most Jeep enthusiast from Cavite always tell us that the best Jeeps are made in Bulacan since they have the experience, the best tinsmiths, mechanics and the availability of parts & accessories, but I believe that our friends from Cavite have enough knowledge and skill to have a "run for their money". What for Cavite got well known for building "Jeepneys"? Sarao, Tabing, Hayag, Francisco, Pakinggan & Malaguena to name a few jeepney makers.Here she is during the restoration. Also, in the pix are M38s of our jeep mentors from Malagasang Cavite who help us build my jeep.
