Cam Races Priority in this Video

• CATEGORIES: Features, Racing, videos • TAGS: .

I just ran across this video of Cam Carter racing the family race jeep Priority. His parents, Tim and Lynette, are friends of mine and were great drivers (probably still are). The video shows Cam is channeling their skills. Tim is in the passenger seat providing occasional advice. It looks like they are running a cross country course at the Monroe Adventure Park.

Priority is a fiberglass Parkette body with a custom link arm suspension. I rode in the jeep on an early version of the suspension a few years ago, but Tim made some changes to it that improved it quite a bit I’m told. It’s powered by an aluminum V8 with about a trillion horse power that feed in a Ford Toploader four speed that used to be in dad’s CJ-5.

Dad had a side shifter installed when he owned the tranny. First and reverse gear were so close. I was learning to drive it on the road when, after stopping at a stoplight during a training drive, I mistakenly put the tranny into reverse rather than first. I nearly backed into the person behind me when I let out the clutch. Dad was in the passenger seat and was pretty rattled by my near mistake (as was I). Fortunately, I had a good grasp of how to use the brake, which averted an embarrassing wreck 🙂

Rapid Transit Lives . . .

• CATEGORIES: Features, Racing • TAGS: , , .

Damian wrote to tell me that a favorite drag jeep of mine, Rapid Transit, is racing under a new owner and a new power train. It looks like it uses a Bobcat hood and (likely) body.

He writes, “believe it or not this jeep is still around in the cleves, ohio area and races regularly, but it is now a center seater 2wd and has a small block chevy, i race with the current owner and also do photography.”

You can view Damian’s photos on Facebook. Below is a comparison between the old and new racer.

Jeep Yakima Rodeo March 1959 issue of Modern Man

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine, Old Images, Old Images Jeeping, Racing

It’s a dirty business, but hunting down jeep stories takes me through all types of content. In this case, I had to search through several pages of bare female breasts and bodies until I found this story about a Yakima Jeep Rodeo from the March 1959 issue of Modern Man. I can report that accompanying the enthusiastic models were several other interesting stories . . .

UPDATE: **Sold** Was priced at $1500.

Marty spotted this old racer with a f-head. It’s got the old mini-terras, the mismatched rims, patched body panels, and a hole in the hood (who needs a scoop for racing?). Looks like a fun little rig.

It has an f head 4 cylinder and 4 speed with depend t case wich means you can select front, rear, and 4 wheel drive. The rear end is locked.
