Classic Jeep Pictures - January 2006 SidewaysPosted in Features on January 1, 2006 Comment (0)
We encourage you to send in your old Jeep photos from the early '40s up to the late '70s. We're not quite interested in the '80s yet. The memories of valley-girl talk and New Wave music haven't stopped resonating enough to warrant it. Include as much information about each photo as possible, such as approximately when it was taken, any interesting stories, and so on.
However, please don't send us the originals. We'd rather have a good, high quality reproduction, or digital scan to ensure your precious original remains unlost or undamaged. You can send your vintage pics to: Jp Magazine, Sideways: Vintage Edition, 6420 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048, or e-mail them to email@example.com with "Sideways: Vintage Edition," written in the subject line.
John Rugge wants the world to see his dad's '45 MB, which was purchased right after the end of World War II. The photo, circa 1950-something, was taken at the Jeep's residence in Vermont, where it served plow duty in the winter and log-hauling detail in the summer. It was finally sold in the late '50s.
Apparently, there is wheeling to be had around Adams, Massachusetts, as Dick Aveyard displays here in his '54 CJ-3B. The old-school flattie ran a Koeing cab, which tended to fog on the inside. At least that's our theory for the cause of this vintage "oops."
Rick Austin thinks this group shot of the World's First Official Bountiful City Jeep Posse from Bountiful, Utah (whew!), was taken in the early '60s. We just think it's really cool. Rick's father joined the group, which specialized in search and rescue, and served as a member for 44 years until his death in 1998.
