It sat in a barn for roughly 40 yrs until my grandpa restored it. It has been garage kept since then. After my grandpa passed away several years ago my mom got the Jeep and she gave it to me. I have no place to keep it besides in my back yard. It runs and drives, and attracts everybodys attention. I know it’s worth a decent amount of money, I’ve done my research. Im asking $8k or best offer or I’m considering trades just let me know what you have the worst I can say is no thanks.”

Shane’s Spring 2020 Trip in a GPW

• CATEGORIES: Features
draft-of-trip

Shane’s preliminary route from Florida to Richmond, VA, Spring 2020, View it on Google.

You may remember my visit with Shane Miller while I was visiting Richmond, Virginia, this past December. I recently turned Shane onto a running, driving GPW in Florida, which he subsequently bought. Instead of towing it home, he’s decided to drive it home to Richmond, an 863 mile drive. He plans on taking the trip sometime in late March or April.

Shane’s preliminary Route on Google 

Why is he doing it? Because, why not? I applaud the adventurous spirit and am jealous that I’m not in the passenger seat! Sometimes you just gotta live life and take some chances.

That said, he’s not dumb either. He’s worked on enough WWII jeeps that he doesn’t underestimate their ability to break down. So, he’s publishing a potential route to see who might be along the route in case he does have some mechanical problems.

One of his goals is to visit the Jeep-Collection at Omix-Ada. Another goal is to visit his 101-year-old Great Uncle, a WWII vet, in Athens, Georgia. He thinks his uncle will get a very big kick out of seeing him driving the GPW.

If you are along the route or have suggestions/comments, feel free to comment below or contact him directly at donovanshanemiller @ gmail.com (no spaces around the @)

1942 Article About Holy Names Academy Buying Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

This November 20, 1942, article from the Catholic Northwest Progress Newspaper highlights the Holy Names Academy’s Girls School’s efforts to purchase a jeep for the Army.

Holy Names Académy Girls Buy Jeep for U. 5. Army

RIDING In the jeep which had been sent to Holy Names Academy through the courtesy of the War Department, the members of the Student Council celebrated a major event in the Schools at War Program which has been carried on at Holy Names since September. During one week the pupils of the school contributed $1040 In savings bonds and stamps to the War Savings Staff, the “buying” of a jeep for the army being the goal of their efforts.

Making a serious effort to co-operate with the Treasury Department to save, serve and conserve, the girls have entered upon all three avenues of action. A recent questionnaire revealed the types of service being rendered: Clerical service, messenger service for local civilian defense, assisting in the unification and harvesting of crops, studying, first aid, roiling bandages, making of kits, and the collection of books and magazines for recreation centers.

The Christmas project at Holy Names this year is the preparing of boxes for army chaplains. containing religious articles for use in their work. Besides these helpful articles, a chaplain will also receive a spiritual bouquet which the girls are preparing during these preceding weeks.”

1955 Willys History in Air Trails Hobbies For Young Men

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine

Air Trails Hobbies was a ‘how to’ magazine that provided news, reports, designs, and ‘how to’s’ on a range of hobbies. It’s intellectual bent on science and design just makes it more odd that it’s overview of the Willys History seems so lacking, especially in the 4WD jeep department. Given that, by February 1955 (the date of the issue below) the CJ-5 was already introduced, it seems a bit odd to ignore the latest jeep!
