    Would like to find a 56 Jeep pickup to restore. It would be a trapshooting vehicle when I'm done with it. Thanks for your time, Red Barron

    That will be a tough one, but there was an old Jeep pickup at a old and oddball car lot south of Mt. Olive, Illinois. Most of the cars are junky but I saw it last summer. The lot is right on Interstate 55. I don't know the name of the lot but I'll find out when I go back there next Monday (I'm in AZ now.) I'll see if it's still there and check the year and price for you.

    Talk to you later.

    red barron and all:

    The business Mr. Roach referenced is Country Classic Cars. "oddball car lot" doesn't quite do it justice. It's a large place with an extensive inventory of classic vehicles. With a few exceptions, these cars and trucks would be of interest to someone looking for a vehicle to restore or someone looking for a parts vehicle.

    Their website, countryclassiccars.com, lists inventory items, photos, and prices. A quick scan of their inventory includes two jeep trucks but neither is a '56.

    The business is located adjacent to I-55 in southern Illinois near Staunton. More specifically, it's about an hour north of St. Louis, MO. or an hour south of Springfield, IL.

    It's also about 15 minutes from the Brittany Shooting Park - home of the Illinois state shoot.

    One man's oddball is another man's treasure.
