2018 Willys Am Tegernsee (WAT) Convention

• CATEGORIES: Event, Features

CeePee and the Willys Am Tegernsee (WAT) group had the convention a few weeks ago in Southern Germany. Despite the dry, hot weather for much of the summer, on the day of the convention the weather turned rainy. However, in his post about the event, CeePee reminded readers that “Nasty weather is only considered as another challenge by jeepers. That’s what makes them special too”.

The group welcomed a couple visitors from Australia, one of whom showed the group how to wipe a raw potato across the windshield to keep the rain from sticking to the windshield. You can read more in CeePee’s report, which is written in both German and English.

Old School Jeeping Photos

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old Images Jeeping • TAGS: .

I ran across these photos today posted by a guy who grew up in the Skyway Cliffhangers Jeep Club, a club based in my hometown of Renton. The photos below highlight the kinds of paint jobs I remember back in the 1970s. As a kid, part of the fun of going to playdays and jeep conventions was to see all the different paint schemes (colors, designs, and accents), tires choices, cage architecture, engine experimentations, and other modifications. You can see lots of old PNW Jeeping photos here:
