Hello,

Here is a great video recounting tales of President Reagan's personal Ranch Jeep.

Very nice story.

Nice, I saw something similar a few years ago. One time on some forum the question was asked who would you take for a ride in your jeep based on people alive during your lifetime. I said My Dad, John Wayne and Ronald Reagan.

Hello Steve,


You couldn't make a better selection of Jeep guests !!

All 3 at the same time would be the best :D :D :D

I would like to think they have wonderful Jeeps up in Heaven :D :D :D

I also remember seeing pictures of Reagan driving an M38A-1 he had on this ranch, or earlier ranch.
I think it was in an old National Geographic, back when they once has a great magazine.




Best Regards,

Ray

Regarding John Wayne, that's another problem to have him installed in a Jeep :lol: .
He looked scared in a Jeep.

Well he is in my spot and I have the "bigger" 3a! Pretty sure he is looking at a chick as he is already heading out of the jeep.

Looks like the Duke had trouble keeping his legs inside a jeep!
