1947 & 1948 Articles about Sam and Julian Kipnis

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles

This short article in the January 02, 1948, issue of the Arizona Post featured a photo of this father and son team to “prove” they were in WWII together. There time in WWII did not quite go as planned, but you can read that in the article at the bottom. There’s more on Sam’s life, including his time as South Tucson’s mayor, in the book: What They Saved: Pieces of a Jewish Past.

Here’s the October 03, 1947, story that led to the photo published above …. (note the next to the last paragraph is cutoff in the original article for some reason; only one line shows “Kipnis are trying to forget … “).

Kelly All-Steel Jeep Cab Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

So … this was on eBay yesterday. I’d patiently waited to purchase it, even setting my alarm clock. However, when the day and time arrived, my phone was away from me charging. Meanwhile, I was distracted researching this book 1000page-plus cook book from 100 years ago (1920 in fact), which I found while doing some ewillys posts yesterday (I was killing time awaiting the eBay auction end).

My supportive wife was very excited when I showed her the book images, as she knows I like a good old cookbook. She started chanting, “buy it, just buy it, buy it” … but no, I couldn’t at that price. After some research, I found a free copy on the Internet Archive, but looking through 1000 pages on the IA just isn’t the same as having the real thing in my hands. Eventually, I found a MUCH less expensive copy through Amazon, which Ann purchased for me as a gift (she’s hoping I’ll cook some food from it).

By the time I returned to this eBay auction, it was exactly 2:15pm, the same time that the auction ended. My timing couldn’t have been any worse.

Oh well, at least I got a cookbook out of the deal! Here are the two images from brochure that were posted to eBay.

1955 M-38A1 Yucaipa, CA eBay

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: , .

Bill shared this nice looking M-38A1. The jeep’s supposed to have only 4850 miles on it, but given the engine was likely pulled and painted (and rebuilt?) at some point, I find that claim hard to believe. Perhaps they are miles after engine rebuild? There are a few other clues that body parts were repainted as well at some point.

“1954 Jeep CJ3B. Has rebuilt F-head 4cyl. engine,(Jeep used this engine from 53′-65′), T90 3 spd. trans. Has been a restoration project that I never seem to find the time to finish,(summers are too short in Vt.!)Have replaced brake lines,shoes,wheel cylinders,also have replaced fuel tank,fuel pump,radiator,and waterpump. Rebuilt the carb,but,probably needs to be gone through again. Haven’t had running in over a year. Electrical system was converted from 6volt to 12 volt before I got it. Top is in bad shape but,new ones are still available.

Frame and body look to be original.Body is rusty, but, I’ve seen worse,many replacement body panels are available from various vendors. Needs body work to make roadworthy,but you could use it as it is in the woods. Don’t have to worry about denting a fender or scraping branches or brush like you would on a new Roxxor that you paid $18k for. Look at the patina on this ol-girl! These old Jeeps are geared so low that they are best suited for back country roads,off roading or as a utility vehicle. Simple to work on compared to newer Jeeps or SXS. No title as Vt. doesn’t title vehicles over 15 yrs. old.”
