    I like these WW2 photos showing beat up, war worn MB/GPW’s. It shows that a historically correct Jeep does not have to be ‘Parade Ready’.

    Read the translation but it doesn’t seem like driving a Jeep from Oslo Norway to Sweden is a quick trip. It looks like the photo was printed in Stockholm which is over 500 KM away.

    I was watching a ww2 movie the other day and noticed a lot of the JEEPS had that white star on the hood – – probably not a good idea — TARGET FOR A GERMAN STUKA DIVE BOMBER ? — new usa military vehicles and planes have no TARGETS painted on them ..

    No worries Gayland. Sometimes the system doesn’t work quite right. I’ve cleaned it up 🙂

    RACE: I’ll have to try translating that in the morning and see if I can figure it out. But, I agree that it would have taken quite a while to drive the 522km from Oslo to Stockholm.
