Hugo Vidal Has Published His Book

• CATEGORIES: Books, Features
IMG_8650

The book was larger than I expected. It was a pleasure for me to read.

Hugo Vidal, that 85 year old intrepid traveler from Brazil (and founder of AVM) has published his book. I received a copy last week and tore right through it. It’s written in both Portuguese and English. Since Ann and I traveled with Hugo and his son Fernando last year for four weeks, I knew most of the stories he included in his book. But, there were a few new ones and some fuller explanations on others. It’s also full of photos, some I hadn’t seen.

Most of the book centers on the 1956/1957 trip. But, there’s a little bit at the end about the 2017 Alaska Or Rust adventure. And on that, I have a minor quibble. Hugo remembers me contacting him about joining us on the trip. Actually, it was Hugo who contacted me. His eagerness was infectious, as this email extract, the second email he wrote me, underscores:

“…. Since we only heard about the Alaska or Rust caravan yesterday, my son and I rushed to try and find a way of joining in. But I understand now that participation is closed. Even though we don´t even have a vehicle yet, if there is a chance for a place in the waiting list we will somehow purchase, lease, borrow or steal one….”

Hugo told me that he shipped some books over the US, but I’m still awaiting more information on how folks can purchase a copy. I will pass on the information as soon as I know more. Here are a few pics.

IMG_8651

Hugo dressed as a Dutch Maiden while on their jeep trip. You’ll have to read the book to learn why.

On the left is Hugo’s restored CJ-3B. On the right was the 3B for the trip. Note the custom bed extender on the back.

Ann took this photo of Hugo and Fernando, I believe in Jasper National Park in Canada.

“Registered (non-op currently) as a 1967 due to a motor swap, this Flat Fender Jeep is actually a 40’s or early 50’s Jeep Willys. The motor is a Chevy 283 V8 from a 67′ Chevelle. This Jeep is full of goodies and smog exempt. After owning her for more than 10 years (Originally a bachelors toy), it’s time to find a new home as there’s little room for kids & dogs in a Willys. One guarantee, This Jeep makes people smile, especially children when they see it. Like a big bright yellow Tonka toy. It’s also a blast to take to classic car shows as it’s always one of the oldest vehicles in attendance and often the most unique (not just another hotrod/muscle car in the lineup, and the only on that can go OFF the highway).

Bantam-trailer-original-condition

“Up for auction is an original WWII Willys MB Trailer! These trailers are super rare to find in this condition if you can even find them at all! This is an unmolested, uncut, original trailer. I purchased this many many years ago from a gentleman that was in his 80s and had used it behind his Willys MB. The trailer is not registered and has never been used by me. It has always sat in my garage since purchasing it. I do not have a title for it as there was no title when I purchased it. I will include a bill of sale. There are no numbers stamped on the reproduction data plate so you can add what you wish. The trailer has a few markings of 293 stamped on a few pieces of metal. The original leg also has a stamping on it.
The trailer is not in factory new condition. It is over 70 years old and incredibly hard to find one in this shape. It would make a fantastic addition to someone’s WWII Willys MB or Ford GPW!
I do not even want to part with it as I’m well aware of how rare it is but I need to free up some room for other projects.
The hand brake works. I have never plugged in the cable but the lights and all wires appear in good condition so I assume they all work as well.
Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer and I will do my best to assist where I can.”
