I’m on my fifth month of Jeep ownership. Although my Jeep has had a few mechanical issues, I see them more as fun mechanical activities than pesky mechanical problems. I’ve enjoyed working on it and I love to drive it! I’ve been looking at pictures of old Jeeps, particularly around WWII. Enjoy!

Note: December 1941 is the month of the attack on Pearl Harbor. This is early in the war effort.
Note: I’m a bit confused by this one. Note the “Ford” emblem embossed on the back? I did not know Ford made lower-case “jeeps” during this time or any other for that matter. Can anyone tell me about this?
