New Jeep owner!

Recommended Posts

Hi, just bought a 1943 Ford GPW mostly original and to say I'm chuffed is a mild understatement.

She served with the US in the Pacific campaign and ended up staying in the Phillipines in service as a Provost vehicle and still has a working siren on her! Great fun but scares the cats!


Despite her history she is going to be British probably 6th Airborne and will soon have a nice olive drab and micky mouse camo scheme. Currently in a horrible shiny light green very neat but not authentic.Ford-GPW-Jeep-2.jpg

Welcome Chris. Nice Jeep. Unfortunately the parking area at the Clubhouse allocated to Jeeps has become overcrowded, so Jack has removed all Jeep parking allocation and instead instigated a Valet Parking scheme for the Jeeps.


Having said that, it seems to work pretty well (except for when TonyB is on forklift duty :shocked: )
