Here are a couple more:

This one is the Novato 4th of July, 2005 parade....the gentleman in the rear was in a Machine Gun outfit in the South Pacific and made the transition from MULES carrying everything to vehicles...He was at the VFW and did not have a ride so we gave him a ride in the jeep. The guys in back are 3rd ID reenactors.

This one is the Petaluma Veteran's Day Parade in 2006...a couple of us were up front with Pearl Harbor Survivors as passengers....quite an honor to have them aboard...they liked the jeep better than the convertibles the local Chrysler dealer used to provide.

Nothing beats a MB/GPW by itself, in B/W with Signal Corps stamp and looking WW2-ish :roll:

Thanks, Guys

Less can sometimes be more.
I'm referring to so much of the stuff that I can hang off Rosie.
But without it all, those clean lines ... :wink:

Taken on a field day last summer. Just had all the gorse removed from round the pond, hence the post apocalyptic and somehow appropriate setting....
