Jeepandmedic.com — One Family’s Jeep Collection

• CATEGORIES: GPA (SEEP), International, toys, Website This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Jeepandmedic.com is a great little website that features a French (?) family that is busy collecting jeeps (GPA, GP, Hotchkiss …) and more.  It appears to be a total family affair.  Their collection of jeep pedal vehicles is particularly interesting.  The collection of book titles is worth reviewing as well.

Below are a few of the pedal jeeps. Note the last pic where they are hanging in a garage above what appears to be the Seep covered in canvas.

1978 Prototype Jeep Jr. Reynoldsburg, Oh

• CATEGORIES: toys This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Here’s a very unusual Go-Kart/Toy/Lawn mower (strange combo) on Ebay for $9,995 that was spotted by a reader.  I did a quick search to see if I could find the museum that houses the other one of these prototypes, but couldn’t find it.  I have no idea what this is worth or whether this is really what the seller says it is.

“For sale is a unique Jeep Jr. built by wheel horse for the Jeep company in 1978. Only three were ever made. One is on display in a museum, one is destroyed, and one is sitting in my garage. The Jeep Jr. runs and drives and has been well maintained over the past thirty years. This Jeep is truly a collectors item. This jeep jr was produced as a prototype in 1978 for American motors and is an actual lawn mower. The jeep goes pretty fast up to 25 mph, and even faster if set up right. Perfect for car collector. Can be driven on street or grass….”
