The Ghost Army Documentary from 2013


I had some kind of intestinal issue yesterday, so I spent most of the time in bed. Looking for something interesting to watch on TV, I ran across a documentary called The Ghost Army, which talks about the top-secret unit charged with creating distractions, illusions, and more. I’d heard of the story, but never saw the video.

I watched the film via Amazon Prime; I can’t find it anywhere online, but I did find this short introduction to the Ghost Army video:

Here are some images showing how the group tried to make a jeep into a tank, but that turned out to be a failure. Instead, they turned to blow-up rubber tanks.

Here’s a jeep parked next to a rubber tank:

Runs and drives great I just no longer have space for it. It’s an Amazing head turning truck that everyone seems to love. I hate to get rid of it but it’s time to move on to the next project. This project needs a few finishing touches to be 100% complete.. I just lack the time and space to complete it.

It runs and drives great just never use it.
Also this is my bottom price and if it doesn’t sell by the end of the 30 days i will just end up keeping it.”

Farm Jeep Bio on Me

• CATEGORIES: Features, Website

Barry Thomas and his son Evan have been working hard to expand, a resource for early farm implements and other jeep information. As they note in the “about us” section, they are a “father and son documenting that we don’t know what we are doing since 2002” … I can relate to that as well.

If you haven’t been there in a while (or never), check it out, as the father and son duo have rebuilt the earlier site into a larger one with lots of information. The jeep lift research area is especially valuable. You can even learn a little bit about me, as Barry generously asked me to contribute a short bio for the site.
