A CJ-3B Buried in the Snow in Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, Features

Someone is saying to themselves, “I knew I should have put the jeep in the garage.” This CJ-3B is located in Iqaluit, a Canadian town way up and out there, in relation to me anyway.  The photograph was taken just a few days ago (as best as I can tell) by Ron Wassink.  I think the jeep is for sale, too, for those that want to take a REAL road trip, but bring your back hoe to dig it out of the snow.

From Wikipedia, “Iqaluit was founded in 1942 as an American airbase, geographically located to provide a stop-over and refueling site for short range fighter aircraft being ferried across the Atlantic to support the war effort in Europe. Iqaluit’s first permanent inhabitant was Nakasuk, an Inuk guide who helped American Air Force planners to choose a site with a large flat area suitable for a landing strip. Long regarded as a campsite and fishing spot by the Inuit, the place chosen had traditionally been named Iqaluit – “place of many fish” in Inuktitut – but Canadian and American authorities named it Frobisher Bay, after the name of the body of water it abuts.”

The Houston Art Car Parade (May 20, 21 & 22)

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features

Mark wrote me to share with me one of Houston’s unique cultural events.  They were the originating city for the Art Car Parade. Houston launched the parade in 1988 with 40 cars and a couple thousand spectators.  Today the number of cars in the parade will top 250, with around 250,000 spectators. The 2011 Houston Art Car Parade will be held this weekend.

Naturally, did a few searches to see if I could any jeeps, but I only found two.  So, below them are a few curious creations that have appeared over the years.

Here we have the PEEP JEEP, a jeep decorated with peeps.

This appears to be a bengal jeep of some sort:

And here are some random pics:

How about this unusual top?

“I have for sale a Willys JEEP CJ2A.  The jeep is currently titles as a 1972 because it is very hard in my state to get a new title.  The original serial number is on the jeep.  The jeep is tagged and i have driven it alot on the road.  The jeep has always performed very well for me.  The body has been patched over the years with new metal, (no bondo that i can see).  The frame is in good shape.  All the brakes have been replaced, (master cyl., wheel cyl., lines, shoes, ect. ).  The wire harness has been updated to 12 volt and all the lights work fine.  The 4 wheel drive also works great.  The engine runs good and all the gears work fine in the trans.  The water pump is new and the starter is rebuilt.  I bought this jeep when i retired 5 years ago to pull a wagon with firewood out of the woods, I am older now and find it hard to get in and out of so i bought a tractor instead.  This is a really fun little jeep and i hope some one will enjoy it as much as i have.  This is a reserve auction and i will not reveal the price.  The jeep is being sold “AS IS” with NO WARRANTY”. There is a $500.00 non-refundable deposit required within 48 hrs of end of auction.  If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment to inspect the jeep before bidding yo may call me at 443-553-2712 my name is MIke.  Thanks for looking and good luck bidding.”
