Sideways Readers’ Vehicles

Photographers: Readers

Send us your Jeeps! Unlike our chance to showcase your built rides in Jeep Shots, Sideways is all about your military Jeep experience, your sunk/stuck/rolled Jeep experience, or your family-vacation-in-a-Jeep experience, or other part of your personal history in which a Jeep played a part. We want to see and hear, so send us a high-resolution pic and don’t forget the most important parts of all: tell us who is in the photo (first and last name), where it was taken, what year/type of Jeep, and any other fun backstory info. And tell us who you are and where you’re from if you’re not the one in the photo. Make sure the photo is high resolution (1,600 by 2,000 pixels, or around 2 megapixels) and a JPG (maximum quality), BMP, or TIFF file. No PDFs. Email the photo and story to with the subject line, “Sideways.”

A Jeep Always By His Side
John Condoluci sent his photo of his wife’s grandfather, Ernest Maso, while he was stationed in Italy during World War II. “The picture is dated 1945. He’s posing beside his Jeep, which he also had a diecast model of on his night table.”

Two-Time War Hero
“This is a photo of my grandfather, SFC Harley F. Goble,” said Jp reader Kyle Goble. “I believe it was taken during his 180th Infantry Army service in the Korean War. Grandpa Harley also served in World War II.”

Like He Said, Oops
Gary Edmonson sent us this pic from an event at Turkey Bay ORV. “I decided to find out how deep the ditch was at the bottom of Rocky Road. Oops.”

When Damage is Good
It’s really hard to say whether the photos you Jp readers send for Sideways are from a really bad day or a really good day. Probably seems pretty rotten in the moment, but your letters are always filled with glee and pride at the end. Take Jeremy Miller: “We went wheeling up in the Pine Barrens with some friends from our local Jeep club (DE Jeep Association). We drove the fire roads and found a few deep water holes to drive through. After some goading from my buddies, I drove through them. We were having a blast even when we got stuck and had to pull each other out. This was the seventh and final hole of my day. Got stuck in the middle, and it flooded my transmission. Had to be towed out of the woods by a tow strap and deal with the cost was having to have the trans rebuilt.” See? Rebuilding a tranny never seemed so OK.
