1994–Just K. Willis
I usually drive a restored ’43 GPW, but when visiting my mother-in-law at Lake Almanor, California, I used her ’76 CJ-5. I had just returned from gasing up for an expedition when, while talking to my wife and her mother, we saw her Jeep roll past the side of the house, down the back lawn, through a split-rail fence, and over several huge rocks, only to land in the lake and sink.
