I was looking for something, can’t even remember what at the moment, when I ran across this picture of jeeps at a race in Cripple Creek, Colorado, on Hemmings.  That lead me to the Denver Public Library Digital Collections where I found a variety of pics.

Here is one image of kids on a jeep as part of a war bond effort.

Here is a second photo:

The caption on this photo notes these men are wounded vets and are touring the Gates Rubber Plant in Denver.

Here are some post war jeepers exploring mining areas in Colorado in the 1950s.
