Here’s a series of jeep photos from the Portal To Texas History website. There are many, many more: https://texashistory.unt.edu/search/?q=jeep&t=fulltext&sort=&fq=

This is my favorite of the bunch: An M-38A1 with a Schooner-like soft top:

This photo is dated 1945, but it’s clearly a 1950s photo based on the grille.

1950 Newspaper Truck Ad on eBay

UPDATE: That’s to Mark we’ve learned that at least one of these ads ran in the October 1950 issue of Capper’s Farmer magazine.

I don’t remember running across this ad. Note the lack of ‘Jeep’ promotion, part of Willys shift to the promote the Willys branding across the models.

The Bad: The passenger side storage is rusted (very common) and the original owner welded on a spare tire mount that has cracked the body right next to it. No seats, the previous owner welded in some seats that were complete junk so I started removing them.

Prefer e-mail. If you want pictures of anything let me know, I have lots of them.

More Tech for More Cars, More Problems for Us .. ARGGG!

• CATEGORIES: Features

This might be a bit of a rant …

ww

During the 2000s my kids were into World of WarCraft, but I could never get into the game myself. Partly, this was due to my own impatience. Generally, I’m pretty patient, but I’m less so when it comes to games. An example: one time I needed to hand my sword to another player, but to do so I had to execute a bunch of commands, spells, and other machinations that I can no longer remember. Ugh … I quickly lost interest.

Why do I bring this up? Because last night Washington State (and apparently other areas nationwide) suffered through a Verizon outage.  Ann and I were in bed when we learned of it, so we tried texting one another. I texted something gloriously romantic like the word, “test”.

Being it is so close to Valentine’s Day, I probably should have texted, “Won’t you be my Valentine”? But, I didn’t …. Dumb, dumb, dumb … You should learn from my mistake … go ahead … please learn from my mistake: text your significant other right now. Ask, “Won’t you be my Valentine”?

I’ll wait. You can thank me later.

Anyway, it took about ten minutes for the texts to reach our respective phones due to the outage and despite the fact we were sitting right next to each other. It felt like World of WarCraft all over again.

iphone-car

I beat this notion to death only to bring up the fact that Apple (accidentally?) released code a few days ago that demonstrates the company’s efforts to bring a new “CarKey” feature to their phone. It would, theoretically, allow iPhone users to seamlessly move from one car to another, even to rental cars, without ever having to have a key. How could this possibly go wrong? Let me count the ways …
