    Colin and Steve: I recently won 10 Jeep News Newspapers from 1960 and 1961 on eBay (for only $20 for all!). There are a large number of DJ-3A and Surrey articles/photos in them. One article did announce (with pic) the winner of the Gotham contest as well as other contests. I’ll scan and publish them sometime in the next month, but can also make full resolution scans available for the DJ guys in case that’s of interest.

    Thanks Dave. It would be interesting to see if those folks are still around and what they may have done with the Surreys!!!
