My MB at a recent event

Post by Hammerhead » Tue Apr 07, 2020 7:07 pm


Since the HMV events have all been cancelled this Spring, I thought I would post pictures of an Event I attended in October 2019.


The Event was at the American Legion Post in my hometown.


My Bantam Trailer is an August 1944 and a European Return.


Here's the Artillery piece in front of their Post. I know nothing about Artillery so no details can be provided!

Thanks for this. I start my Jeep at least once a week, but no substitute for a little out and about. I have concluded that when the weather warms up a touch, I shall endeavor to show the flag to all the walkers, bikers and joggers just to wave and make them jealous. To paraphrase a beloved song from "South Pacific" the musical, "There ain't nothin' like a Jeep. nothin' in the world....Even in your deepest sleep, you'll be dreamin' 'bout a Jeep"

I was really looking forward to this years MV shows and re-enactments but everything is in limbo as of now. Thank you CCP.
I take the GPW out for a ride about once a month if the weather is tolerable.
Thanks for the pictures. 👍🏻

I was really looking forward too to this years MV shows, this is really frustrating. Now stuck here it at home, glad I still have my GPW to tinker with since it has been a while since I last maintained it.
