CJ-5 Kelly Bonanza III hardtop Wells, VT $400


No pics provided.

“Why spend over a grand for a hard top, doors, and hatch when you can scrape and paint this one for far less?

Glass is good. Metal is sound. Paint and trim…. well, you drive a CJ5 so we know you don’t mind a little labor of love.

I believe the maker was Kelley, the model is a Bonanza III. Supposed to fit CJ5, judging from the door hinges this may be for the ’72 and later year models.

Cab, both doors, and rear hatch, probably with less rust than your Jeep’s body if you drive it in NY, asking $400. Negotiable if you’re not a lowballer. Nobody likes lowballers.”

Newfoundland 2019 (Or Rust)

• CATEGORIES: Event, Features • TAGS: .

The NF Trip 2019 (Or Rust) | Day 2 Aug 3rd: Newfoundland Found, First Group Camp –>


Russ (at the wagon) and Joe Bee’s CJ-3B are filling up for their meeting with the group.

Over the last couple of days a group of intrepid explorers–tough, thoughtful, highly trained, without fear, able to withstand the worst summer conditions–have set out for the wilds of Newfoundland, Canada. Many of these brave souls participated in the 2017 Alaska Or Rust trip.

Having survived western Canada two years ago, they are ready to join forces once again to explore the wilds of eastern Canada. They are equipped only with the latest techo gadgets, GPS locators, and A/C units in their trailers, along with healthy doses of humor,  Some are in classic jeeps and others in modern ones, but all have joined to share in the goal of adventure, friendship, and camaraderie.


This is a rough estimate of the Newfoundland trip. I don’t know what the final route will be.

Together, they’ll be exploring the other worldly area of Newfoundland, places with strange names, such as the unique town of Dildo, where they might just get a photo with Captain Dildo … yes, I kid you not.


Ann and I will not be joining them on this trip, so I’ll do my best to keep folks up-to-date on their travels. In fact, I haven’t been involved in the planning process, so I’ll only be learning where they are going as they travel. I also don’t know who all the participants will be.

Naturally, a trip like this can’t begin without some last minute heroics. This year’s award goes to Joe Bee, who worked his butt off to finish up engine and brake upgrades to Russ Lawton’s Wagon.


Bill Reiss also spent time checking over his Dually CJ-5, which turned out to be a good idea, as he discovered a tire-popper in one of his tires.

Baron Rudolph Von Ripper

• CATEGORIES: Features

I was reading one of Ernie Pyle’s books and ran across his description of Baron Rudolph Von Ripper, a man who probably would have fit in with Taratino’s Inglorious Bastards. I did a little research on him. He was a well regarded artist who developed a taste for warfare.

Read about Von Ripper here: (It’s worth a read … he had a fascinating life)

Here’s one of his works that include a jeep:


When Time Magazine named Hitler Man of the Year, the magazine used Von Ripper’s gruesome illustration; Von Ripper had some up-close experience with the SS and was as anti-Nazi as anyone.
