LIFE - Jeep Scrap Yards

Post by REG » Sun Mar 10, 2013 12:27 pm

I've Trawled Carl Mydans photos on Google for the Okinawa Jeep dumps - use the link http://images.google.com/search?q=okina ... Q&tbm=isch

There MAY be lots of repetition in these photos, but as you go through a set of these pics you feel the repetition coming on and might think "Oh, I have seen these before" and suddenly a whole new set appears.

I apologise for the time it takes to load these photos - but they are special

REG,
I noticed from the larger version of the pictures that the tires appear to be new, and there are no paint markings(other than a blue drab registration number).

Also some of the sides are buckled inward by the metal banding holding the axles, etc.
I wonder if it was from an over zealous factory worker applying to much torque, or rough handling later?
Maybe some of the bent sides on these trailers were from the factory. :)
Roy
