M151 at car show

I took my 1962 M151 to a local car show and got a very pleasant surprise. We have had out jeep restored now for about 3 years and go to 20 to 24 either parades or shows a year, we have gotten a total of 24 either plaques to trophy's for it. The last car show it got a small trophy for "Judge willeys choice" who ever that was, and then at the end it got the "BEST OF SHOW". You can the the trophy with the jeep. Some of the car show guys with their fancy, dancy cars where not the happiest people there, but they will have to get over it.

For some reason, I was expecting to see an M1151.

Why move the post? Kaiser/AM General built those as well as the Humvee and part of their design must be in the humvee so I don't see a need to move it. You could just copy It and post it in the M151 photo section so it is there too.
