Some Great Old Photos at JpZombie.com

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images • TAGS: .

At JpZombie.com, Casey has uploaded 20 images from the late 40s / early 50s.  Several of the images have also been loaded at the earlycj5.com website and a thread has popped up around them. A video was also uploaded (see below) that shows early color footage of the Yakima Ridge Runners (from Yakima, Washington) playing in what appears to be the Little Naches River and shows them traveling over the Naches Trail (you can also see video excerpts from Exploration Northwest which discusses the trail).

Below is a small version of one of the pics at JpZombie.  In this pic, you can see on the sign ‘Wally Klingele’, who was one of the founding members of the Ridge Runners.  Some of the pics at JpZombie appear to be pics capturing the Life Magazine Folks who put together these classic videos (ridge runner video 1 & ridge runner video 2).

Porcellana Maua Jeep Tea Cups Phoenixville, Pa eBay

• CATEGORIES: Unusual

Thanks to Dave (Hog) for pointing out this unusual item — Jeep Tea cups.  First off, the price on these seems nuts –$9999 — seriously?  Maybe I just don’t know the market for tea cups.  Also, the seller claims these are WWII tea cups, but, based on the jeep, those are Korean War Cups at the earliest.

“World War II Porcellana Maua Jeep Tea Cups and Saucers. Owned by United States Rear Admiral Raymond Schneider who was stationed in Hawaii during the attack on Pearl Harbor. Mint condition.”

Biscuit’s New Drain Holes

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

One little mod I’ve been meaning to implement was the installation of some drain holes for the driver and passenger side floors.  This allows the interior of the body to easily be sprayed out after a day in the dirt.

I knew I didn’t simply want holes; instead I wanted holes with stoppers.  But, I was concerned the stoppers would wear on the fiberglass. So, the other day I drove down the road and browsed around the local Home Depot store to see what I could find.

One idea I had was to check out the PVC aisle to see if there were any stoppers for PVC Pipe.  After looking around, I discovered some $.15 stoppers that could fit into 2″ PVC I already had.  So, I bought the stoppers and went to work.

First, I drilled 2″ holes with a drill saw.  Then, I cut two pieces (one for each side) PVC to about 4″ (my fiberglass body has two layers of fiberglass with a foam core).  I then used some handy marine glue to stick the PVC in place.  It takes the marine glue about 7 days to cure, but once cure, it’s there for life.  Here are the finished results — nothing fancy, but it gets the job done.

Here’s the hole with the stopper in place.  I still need to put some herculiner around the edges to blend everything in better.

This image shows the stopper out and the top of the hole:

This image shows the bottom of the hole:

This looks like a good price, though it has a valve issue.

“Have two Jeeps need to let one go. I have restored one of them and don’t have the money finish this one. I have all the parts to rebuild it, except the seats, and radiator they were not original. These are great Jeeps, I love the one I built. Originally pulled the motor because of a cracked valve seat. Can install new valve and you will have a runner. Can part it out for more than I’m asking I just don’t have the time. Pictures are of when I purchased it last year.  Since I have found a different hood and got ride of the wheels and tires and replaced them with original ”
