Old Jeep Photos on Flickr

Dan spotted this Flickr thread that shows old photos from the Hemet Jeep Club. There are also multiple photos of a great looking CJ-5 with an unusual bumper setup. You might remember these great LIfe Magazine photos from a 1949 Hemet Jeep Club Anza Calvacade.

Here is a link to view the old photos Dan found (you have to browse between the photos to see all the old jeep pics). I’ve copied a few of the photos to share below:

I’m not sure  where this was taken, but it is so rare to find one of these jeep ambulances still around. If I have ever listed on for sale, I don’t remember it.

Photos from Subic Bay, Philippines, Bangkok, Thailand, and More

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images • TAGS: .

Doug had some more (over a thousand) photos digitized from a variety of southeast Asian places from the 50s and 60s and 70s. They were taken by a man who was in the Navy and seems to have traveled or lived all over. Doug has posted over a thousand pictures on Flickr. There are both location photos and photos of business cards, which I found interesting.

See all of them here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/58451159@N00/

Here are a few closeups of photos with jeeps:
