I'm working on it. Do you know any easy way to do it? I played with some of the numbers in the links and made some progress but it wasn't consistent.

No I don't.I am not very computer literit .I'll ask my Apple compute guy.But if the picture is small, when making it bigger, it gets distorted? No the pictures look pretty good!!

I was able to enlarge some of them. Now that I can actually see them I see that some are duplicates. I recognoze Barbra Eden and possibly one other picture for sure, plus I duplicated some of my own, or they're very similar.

I see with a quick check of the DVLA's web site that the reg number on the jeep above (RPH 521) is now on a BMW. Wonder what happened to the Jeep?

Nice. Lots of comments and information about that jeep on a UK website :
The Pre-50 American auto club embraced US military vehicles from its start and collectors such as Pete Gray & Tony Oliver brought vehicles to the annual Rally of the Giants held at Shottesbrooke, nr Maidenhead Berks.
To promote the show, the late John Carter would get the Maidenhead Advertiser to put a half page photo on their back page the week before the Rally.
This is from August 1969, 3 wives of club officials perched on a Jeep: Pauline Burnell, Doreen Thorpe , & Linda Carter in the driving seat. The Jeep belonged to Nick Johns.
There may one or two out there who will remember the RoG.
Nick Johns
Well what a surprise to see that old photo, my original Ford Jeep RPH 521.
I paid £35 for it in 1967, alas it no longer survives, it was never the same after competing in the UK's first off road rally the Welsh Hillrally in 1971

Ah well Yves - perhaps parts of that GPW were used on other jeeps - probably no doubt they were.
