Hemet Jeep Club Cavalcade Photos

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old Images Jeeping • TAGS: .

These photos appeared in the 2008 book HEMET, part of which was scanned into Google Books. In this case, the captions suggest that these were photos of the first cavalcade (listed in the caption as ’48, but ’49 according to a long-time club member),

To me it looks as if there’s at least two M-38A1s, but I can’t confirm that with this lo-res image. The year credited is 1954.

The caption on the photo below suggests this was taken in 1948, but the CJ-3A shown at the front places the next two photos later than that. In fact, the CJ-3A pictured appears also appears in the 1949 photos from Life Magazine. So, these were most likely taken in April of 1949.2008-hemet-book-cavalcade-photo22008-hemet-book-cavalcade-photo3

An M-38A1 (or CJ-5) can be seen in the background, suggesting this is at least 1952 or later.2008-hemet-book-cavalcade-photo4

    Looks like it may be pics taken at different times and all lumped together in one collection.
    The first caption reads “In this 1954 picture,…..”.
    Bet these guys never thought that 60 years later people would be trying to figure out when the pictures were taken!
    I better put dates on my pictures😜

    Amen to that! I have all of our trips photos since 2011 organized in folders, including dates in many files names. But, I also have a box of older photos that aren’t labeled/dated … must add to the to-do list!

    Toward the right rear of the group photo, behind two Wagons, I see a rounded front fender opening of a CJ5/M-38A1.
