Been a Busy Few Days

• CATEGORIES: Features

Monday I’ll have a regular update …

We’ve had family in town the last couple of days, so life’s been busy. The past week we also picked up Ann’s new Ford F-350 Lariat Dually, which will allow us to do some heavier towing, such as moving cattle around, pulling a tractor with our tilt trailer, and potentially towing a heavier jeep (more on this next month if everything goes as planned).

We happened to get lucky that Ann was at the Ford dealership testing out front seats on Wednesday when the new Dually was delivered from the factory, only to be declined by the person who had ordered it and put down a downpayment. That was good news for us, as there is an 8-10 month wait on these trucks. Ann loved the comfort of the seats, so that pretty much sold the truck. (We had been looking at a Cherry Red Silverado Dually 3500, which we really liked, but the seats weren’t very comfortable).

Here are just a couple pics:

2022-09-09-ford-f350-fx4-lariat-1 2022-09-09-ford-f350-fx4-lariat-2

This past week I also got this last of-the-big bunkhouse projects completed. The rear of the house wasn’t very good looking. The crawl space access had a wood lid that tilted down towards the house, so water could run into a portion of the crawl space. In the middle is a septic pump that moves waste from the bunkhouse to the septic tank. To the right of that is the crawl space access. In front of both items is an area where the septic pipe from the pump drops into the ground (so needs to be covered.

Perhaps the biggest challenge was using reclaimed, deformed and twisted pressure treated wood to build this. Between cutting down he pieces and using clamps, I was able to straighten the wood enough to make it usable.  Now instead of two different doors for accessing the pump and crawl space there is one larger door.

Year? ‘Jeep’ News Vol 1. No. 4

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: .

Thanks to Jan, we can have a look at the No. 4 issue of the ‘Jeep’ News. It’s unclear when this was published, but late 1947 seems most likely. The name Russ Borg is printed just above the ‘Jeep’ News name, though the H&R Repair Service out of Lohrville, Iowa, is listed on the back as a place to go for a free demonstration. The only reference I could find to Russ Borg was that he was involved with on in the Warner Brother’s movie studio.

1947 Jeep News Vol.1 No. 3

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Magazine • TAGS: .

Thanks again to Jan for sharing another early Jeep News magazine. This one is titled Milt. Henry’s ‘Jeep’ News. There is a reference to a jeep bought in early 1947, so my guess is that this was published sometime in mid 1947. The jeep-related company advertised on the back of this issue is Lincoln St. Garage, 7 Lincoln St., West Medway, Massachusetts.

1958? CJ-3B Australian Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I am guessing that based on the reference to right-hand driving, and given that jeep manufacturing was introduced in the summer of 1958 in Australia, that this brochure is likely from 1958.

Here is the front of the brochure:
