Today, Trenton got to sit in the “driver’s seat” of the Postal Jeep while we drove around town. In case you didn’t know, the Postal Jeep we recently purchased is Right Hand Drive (RHD) to make delivering the mail easier. So, Trenton sat on the left side and smiled real big. It’s not every day that he gets to sit on that side.
After finishing the title and registration of the Jeep, we drove over to Great Lakes Recycling Center on Lane Road in Perry. I’ve always enjoyed visiting junk yards and this was no exception. Our goal was to pick up a set of hub caps for the Jeep’s 14″ steel wheels but that didn’t keep us from enjoying several interesting vehicles in the collection.
Trenton liked a lot of the cars in the lot including a motor home, a school bus, and a 90’s era Trans-Am. But his favorite seemed to be this old convertible. My favorite, on the other hand, was a 1993 SAAB 900 with a tempting pair of manually operated leather seats. Wouldn’t that be nice in the Postal Jeep? And they’re only $35 each.
After scouring the entire lot, we found several options. Trenton liked the “Bio-hazard” design hubcaps but I thought they looked a bit tiny on the Jeep. And there were only two available so we didn’t get them. I think the best look would be some chrome beauty rings. They make the wheels look bigger than expected. But at $5 each, I may just find a new set of NEW plastic hubcaps at Wal-Mart. Which do you like better?
