Nick visited the Museum of American Armor in Old Bethpage State Park, Long Island, New York, and took these photos for us.

Here’s a video from the Museum’s website:

Nick wrote, “Right when you walk in and scattered throughout with the heavy artillery are a number of well preserver/restored jeeps. The second vehicle you see when entering is a nice GPW. Then, there are blue and yellow newer-looking jeeps (looked like a 3a and an m38a1), which they drive and use around the park. The museum has a very nice OD m38a1 and an M-718 ambulance jeep. They also have an M-274 Mule, a Mighty mite, and an MB.

They have several volunteers that restore the vehicles and many are driven around. And, if you want to take a ride in a tank in an old battlefield setting, I believe you can for a reasonable donation (think it’s like $125).

Here’s a GPW:


This M-38A1 looks well restored:


This CJ-3A? may have an aftermarket hood. It looks like there’s possibly a “Follow Me” M-38A1 behind the blue jeep:


This appears to be an MB:


And another MB amongst a Commando car on the left and an M-151 on the right:

    i just drove my 67 cj-6 v-6 down to the creek , 4wd , i’m looking for a place to build a bridge , part of my land is on the other side – i surveyed the area and checked out the geology near the creek bed – seems to be a mix of igneous and sedimentary rocks – i split open some of the sandstone slabs looking for fossils – i did find one tiny fresh water snail shell , but not in the rock — panned a few pans to check for color , none — this creek is the syncline of this whole valley , several pools close to 6 feet deep – my well house is right above the creek , water is only a few feet down — this is the where one of the biggest volcanic landslides in history exited the valley and made its way to the river and eventually the sea , 350,000 years ago +- now you see why i’m in 4wd , this area is FRIGHTENING !! — afterwards i treated ” the 6 ” to an oil and filter change , the old willys manuals always said that if you are using your jeep off-road a lot , accelerate the lubrication service schedule — 10-4
