Swamp Buggy Frostproof, FL $1000

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: .

The rustic look is super stylish these days and nothing screams rustic and stylish like this double-decker throwback swamp buggy Roger Martin spotted for us. For only $1000 down and many, many, many more dollars and hours (years?) in labor later, you could enjoy hours of mucky fun in the Florida sunshine, frolicking with gators while wearing waders.

1947 and 1948 Comparison of Ads for the Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Old Images, Old News Articles

Both of these ads from the Sullivan Daily Times, out of Sullivan, Indiana, cover the features of the jeep, but do so in slightly different ways. The March 18, 1947, ad focuses on the job-task utility aspects of the jeep, how consumers can use the jeep. The July 13, 1948, ad is less about what the jeep can do task-wise and more about what it can bring consumers beyond specific tasks, such as great mileage, physical comfort, and convenience. I have not studied other ads to see if this was a general trend in Jeep advertising (in other words, I do not know if this shift directed by Willys-Overland or something Citizen’s Garage did on their own).

“1948 Willy’s CJ2a Jeep. The entire exterior has been rhino lined so it will last forever. The underside has been painted with a truck bed liner for protection as well. New larger gas tank has been added as well as plastics race seats. New wiring harness has been added along with LED tail lights.
The Jeep runs and drives but could use some general upkeep and maintenance. Very easy to work on as there are obviously no computers or major electronics to deal with. Perfect for someone who is just starting to work on cars. This Jeep was my granddads and I have loved making it mine, but it’s time to move to a new project. This Jeep is sold as is and buyers will be required to sign a bill of sale”

1944 vs. 1947 Photo Comparison of St. Lo, France

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

These two photos were published in the Sullivan Daily Times on June 6, 1947, which was the three year anniversary of D-Day. One photo shows St. Lo, France, in the summer of 1944. The other, taken from about the same location, shows St. Lo in 1947. After wasting far too much time examine the town via Google Earth, my guess is that the bottom photo was take just below a castle near the victim’s memorial, pointed south with the La Vire River along the right hand side.
