Mine was a 46 . . built for the invasion of Japan which never happened of course. They kept a couple of hundred thouseand around untill after korea. Vets could register for a lottery and damned if Dad didn't win one . . we had to trailor it from San Antonio and "recommision" it . . cosmoline everywhere.

I got my license when I was 12 and that was my 12th birthday present! I drove it all thru HS and like a damn fool, traded it for a 49 Ford my Sr year.. . I definately got the short end of that deal, but I wanted something "cool".

Ended up putting a 56 318 in it and scareing the hell out of half of south Texas . . soild that when I went into the Marine Corps

I was 12 when I started driving around on the farm ONLY, and the first pickup I ever touched was a Jeep J20, it was a old work horse took some getting used to since I was used to the old 51 Holden utility that my mom drove around in.

Where in the blue-eyed world did you get a holden???

In Texas, you could get a full blown license if your were needed to help on the farm . . We lived outside of town so all it took was for Dad to wink at the Judge ( who knew us personally) for me to get the license . . the next year we moved into town, so my brother was not eligible . . man was he mad! !

I learned more about mechanics recommisioning that old jeep than I ever did on any other car.

Know what I'd like to have? A deuce and a half. World's largest pickup. Things will go practically anywhere they'll fit. But, I don't have anyplace to keep one. They'd be ideal for a farm.

Well, you may have a hard time finding Duce anymore. Don't think the military has used them in about 20 years. Most of them probably have been scraped by now.

Yea they say the earth is warming up due to global warming, I think it is a simple fact that somewhere somebody screwed up when they set the seasons cause if you look at it winter comes later and spring comes later some years and other years its the other way around.

Only if the Jeep is put together like that one way, that Jeep is held together with quick release fittings. I watched an old MB get taken apart once, it takes at least 4 hours.
