Sand in My Turkey
Ah, sand! No one can deny the timeless draw of driving Jeeps in sand. Whether you are into the sand drags or shooting-the-berm, there is no such thing as too much power. While perusing Source Interlink Media’s vast archives, we came across some pictures shot for Hot Rod magazine by Eric Rickman from the Hemet Jeep Club’s Thanksgiving Day Sand Drags from 1966. Shown here is a Jeep with plenty of power in the form of a blown Chevy 327ci V-8. The GM mill, here getting a little tuning, rests between the frame rails of a ’53 Jeep owned by Ralph Thuesen of Newport Beach, CA.
