My first car was a ‘42 WC. The m37 is civilized by comparison, but they ride slow and heavy. The WC felt like a sports car compared to a M37 or a PW.
Biggest hazard nowadays is people aren’t used to slow vehicles on the road, and everyone drives too damn fast.
fwiw, I’ve never seen it work out getting a kid a rig when it wasn’t 100% their own initiative and work to get it, or at least real compensation for hard work. Even a beater Subaru.
If the boy is in the country an m37 is a practical first vehicle. And exposure to history can be a great experience. Best thing about driving a WC was every old veteran wanted to tell stories.
