“VINTAGE JEEP WILLY DEALERSHIP ADVERTISING SIGN Kaiser AMC PARTS SERVICE. Condition is Used.

Check out this great dealership sign salvaged from an old garage. The sign is 18” x 24” and would have been part of a lighted sign in a metal frame of some sort. This auction includes (1) plastic printed Jeep sign as shown.

See the pics. The sign is cracked and has some pieces missing from the top left corner. While damaged, it does not detract from the coolness of this piece. The color is vibrant, and the graphics are bold.

Build a frame/box for it, and put some LED strip lights behind it and hang it on your wall for a cool effect.”

Ride-the-Ducks DUKWs to be Auctioned in July

• CATEGORIES: Features

Blaine share this auction of a series of Ride-the-ducks DUKWs (and DUKW-like vehicles) to be auctioned in July. As the video below demonstrates, Ride-the-Ducks was a huge tourist attraction until 2015 when one of the DUKWs suffered a mechanical failure, careened across aurora bridge traffic into bus, then teetered on the edge of the bridge (hanging over a spot is pretty close to my aunt’s houseboat on Lake Union). The accident and the resulting litigation doomed the company, resulting in it declaring bankruptcy in April of 2020.
