Over Christmas I had the pleasure to tour of a friend’s garage that housed a WWII Jeep. From the gun glove box to the huge hooks on the bumpers that held the parachute when you drop it from a plane, it was cool. The tires are not unidirectional. You can’t tell if the car is coming or going. It’s got a lot of cool details that you don’t appreciate until you’re up in it. This vehicle on eBay in Houston, TX reminded me of it. We really do build some kick ass military vehicles. USA, USA, USA.
