"Car"-Ma ....

This is a cool story. I thought maybe here @HR . com it would truly be appreciated.
Andy ,a guy I work with ( he has a cement truck , I pour cement ) told me today that his elderly neighbor just gave him an all original 1942 or 46 Willy's Jeep.
He said it runs , but smokes a little ( camels , I think ) , the seats aren't the greatest , but it is all there and in working order. When Andy asked hm " why are you giving this to me ? " the guy told him - " I have 4 sons who all live nearby ,and do you think one of them will take me to lunch on a slow day? Nope. But you do. I appreciate your friendship , and if I should happen to not wake up one morning , I wanted you to have this."
Andy told me that he figured the guy must have given it some thought , and in keeping with his wishes , graciously accepted the Jeep.
I think that it truly is Karma at work , or at the very least , a cool story .

Nice story.
It reminds me of another quote:

"A friend may become an enemy, but a relative is one from the start!"

I had a 46 Willy's CJ-2 for awhile before the 38 deSoto. It was fun but with the original motor rebuilt it only got about 45 miles per hour, 50 maybe if you had the wind behind you. Still I miss it.
