What Not To Do When Jeeping Videos

• CATEGORIES: videos

Brian forwarded these videos. What he was hoping they might stimulate are some comments about what might have been done differently .  Of course, it would be easy to poke fun at the driver’s, but in some cases they might not have known better.  So, maybe with some videos like this we can generate some teachable moments.

So, for example, Brian pondered the following contributing factors to the below accident:

(a) Lack of concern and respect of the trail leading to no trail spotter?
(b) Driver failing to understand center of gravity of Jeep ~VS~ gravity.
(c) Failing to recognize trail surface was equal to ball-bearings.
(d) The jeep seemed to be holding the hill before reversing. Driver failed to place jeep in revers and power out. (Related all above)

If you find a non-racing, non-stupidity-drinking back yard yahoo video, just guys/gals on the trail with factors that lead to misfortune, email it to me at d@ewillys.com.

Brian also shared this one, which demonstrates that even the woman running the camera knew this wasn’t a good idea.

Cherokees Don’t Make Good River Boats

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

Brian forwarded this. Wait for the Jeep Cherokee and watch it float the river, or not float it. So, here is the question, you have a camera and someone you know is experiencing an emergency. Do you keep filming?

Wandering Willys Jeep Club Movie Preview

• CATEGORIES: videos

Brian spotted this.  Since we are both ex-members of the WWJC, we admittedly had a soft spot for it.  Apparently, the club makes an annual movie of the year’s events and this was the preview for last year’s movie.

Colombia Yipao Videos

• CATEGORIES: International, videos

I was checking some stats tonight and learned that readers from the country of Colombia constitute one of the largest blocks of readers of eWillys outside the US. So, in solidarity, I thought a few Yipao videos were in order 🙂

Part way through, watch as the driver climbs out while the jeep keeps spinning!

In this one, the driver jumps on top of the jeep while it spins:

This one includes a bee cage:

Agent CJ-3B

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

Now that Chet has finished his CJ-3B restoration, it seems he now has time to launch his movie career!  He hadn’t planned on creating an ‘agent theme’, that emerged during editing.

Chet writes, “I made a “hokey” you tube clip last week and used the term “biscuit fender” that I learned about 10 years ago on the 3B forum…. Also in the intro I used the term “Horse Face”, as this is an affectionate way the people of Brazil refer to their 3B’s.”

Auctions Kings sells a Militarized CJ-2A for $16,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, videos • TAGS: , .

Pete spotted this upcoming suction on the Discovery Channel’s Auction Kings Show.  Turns out, the episode is on the web. It was also for sale here for $20k.

My question is, does the auctioneer have any fiduciary responsibility to be honest?  Because, to say “this is restored perfectly” is simply dishonest.  On the other hand, the seller didn’t know what they were buying, so they shoulder some blame for spending $16,000 (plus any other fees) on this one.  It does look great, just not as historical as implied.
