Neat old jeep...
Was taking a stroll with my daughter yesterday and we came across a tastefully (and accurately) restored Army jeep. I'm not much into 4 wheeled vehicles (I drive a Focus), but man it was cool. Shovel and axe on the side, rifle on the 'dash', crankable, cushions filled with folded army blankets.
I assume it was a veterans day related sighting. He was a cool guy. I had major vehicular envy. Made by Ford in '43 and still running strong on the original engine. It was pretty much stock except for canvas and rubber and whatnot. Pretty long life for a machine that was made (and the welds proved it) to last a few weeks in combat.
