My Favorite Car: '49 Willys Jeepster, P. K. Budd Ballard, 76, Kenneth City

'49 Willys Jeepster

Here is an old photo of my favorite car, a 1949 Willys Jeepster. It was purchased from a used car lot in St. Petersburg while I was a senior in high school there. Upon graduation, my brand new wife and I loaded our belongings and a dog named Joe in the car and a utility trailer attached behind, and headed to our new home in Asheville, N.C. The year was 1955. This car was great in Florida and was very nice in the summertime in North Carolina, particularly on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
