Hi all, my name is Aubrey (60s baby and parents with a sense of humour!!) and I live near Blandford in Dorset.
I was about 12 watching “A bridge too far” where James Caan, playing Sgt. Eddie Dohun, was driving a Jeep up the side of a hill, bumping all over the place without any problem, decided then, one day, I would own one
Many years later, having drooled over Jeeps and anything to do with them, in March 2018, I managed to buy a 1943 MB that I have restored and have had running (on and off) since Easter 2019
My wife thinks I’m barking mad as we had both served in the British Army, me 25 years, she (a mere) 12 years, where we spent the majority of our time maintaining our vehicles
My current project is a “not very military” Yellow VW campervan for her ladyship but it does mean we can go to shows together!
I'm hoping my next project will be a trailer for the Jeep
