When Jeff completed boot we went through the museum at Pendleton. That Mite was at the end of a hallway at the base of a set of stairs. I've got pictures of it someplace :roll:

No, I was fine with mine until I needed a total knee replacement then I had to remove the tool box behind the driver seat. If I tried I could have continued to drive it with the tool box still in it. The seat pan is the same for a WWII jeep.
