Builds – Edgar Nave’s “zooped” up MB

• CATEGORIES: MB

edgar_mb_europeYeah, I know, the “zooped” part is a stretch, but the site has some cool WWII pics.  It appears the pages related to Edgar are part of a ‘Nave’ family album.  The part of the story I like is that fact that Edgar drove a jeep as a courier and personnel transport later in the war effort in France. His jeep was fixed up with an aluminum housing and a manifold heater, and he says it could outrun any jeep in the outfit. It was quite popular with officers who wanted transportation. They wouldn’t let the jeep go unless he went with it so he got to take a good many trips.  There’s some interesting pictures of stuff found laying  around France (shot down planes for example).

Now, I’m not sure exactly how those features made the jeep faster, if they did, but it’s a good story 🙂

Here’s the link to the Edgar Nave Pics
