I mean, really. What else is there to say? After viewing the following photos, the only word reverberating in your head will be “awesome.” Can you do better? If so, email high-res images, preferably in JPEG format to with “Sideways: Purely Awesome” in the subject line.

I thought you might appreciate this pic—it’s what I call “parking hierarchy” at my house!

My mate, Leigh, has the only running Ford GPA in Africa. We used it for fishing on the Breede River in the Cape over Christmas.

Off-Road Army
I bought my first CJ-2A in 1969 and still have it. The South African Defence Force was one of the only armies equipped with right hand drive CJ-3Bs, and CJ-6s with a unique locally produced rear body, some of which carried the 106 gun. I also have a ’90 AIL M325 Command Car built in Nazareth, Israel, given to me as a 60th birthday present by my mate, Len, who lives in Botswana. And an Ex Botswana Defense Force rig, which is really a Power Wagon in disguise. It was fitted with four machine gun mounts, gunners’ seats, ready-use ammunition boxes and so on when I got it. It has a Chrysler slant-six, NP435 tranny, and NP200 transfer case, a Dana 60 front with discs, Dana 70 rear, power-assisted steering, and a Braden winch.
