    Yes, it’s across the street from Childrens beach.

    There is a good chance that Jeep was auctioned in the 1980’s.
    There are too many people blocking the windshield to know if there is a “Wharf Rat” decal on the windshield.

    Just a bit of trivia, Ben Stiller used to work at the Sunken Ship around the corner when he was a kid.
