1969 Jeep photo, with glamorous ladies


Recommended Posts

The Pre-50 American auto club embraced US military vehicles from its start and collectors such as Pete Gray & Tony Oliver brought vehicles to the annual Rally of the Giants held at Shottesbrooke, nr Maidenhead Berks. To promote the show, the late John Carter would get the Maidenhead Advertiser to put a half page photo on their back page the week before the Rally.  This is from August 1969, 3 wives of club officials perched on a Jeep:  Pauline Burnell, Doreen Thorpe , & Linda Carter in the driving seat.  The Jeep belonged to Nick Johns.  There may one or two out there who will remember the RoG.

Well what a surprise to see that old photo, my original Ford Jeep RPH 521 I paid £35 for it in 1967, alas it no longer survives, it was never the same after competing in the UK's first off road rally the Welsh Hillrally in 1971
