Moab Easter Jeep Safari 2010 Moab Rim Trail in a Willys Jeep
Easter Jeep Safari 2010. Taking my Willys MB on the Moab Rim Trail. I did this last year with my JK so I let my buddy the "Troublemaker" from Illinois have a little fun. Only the V8 engined Jeeps made it to the top of the Sand Dune at max throttle. The MB did it at half power!! Go to www.jeepingoffroad.com for the Willys build up and more Jeeping adventures.

Jeep History: "Autobiography of a Jeep" 1943 United Films 10min
more at http://cars.quickfound.net/ "Describes the designing of the Jeep to meet military needs of being compact, light weight and maneuverable over rough terrain." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeep Jeep is an automobile marque of Chrysler (itself a subsidiary of Fiat). The first Willys Jeeps were produced in 1941 with the first civilian models in 1945, making it the oldest off-road vehicle and sport utility vehicle (SUV) brand. It inspired a number of other light utility vehicles, such as the Land Rover which is the second oldest 4-wheel-drive brand. The original Jeep vehicle that first appeared as the prototype Bantam BRC became the primary light 4-wheel-drive vehicle of the United States Army and Allies during World War II, as well as the postwar period. Many Jeep variants serving similar military and civilian roles have since been created in other nations. Bantam Reconnaissance Car When it became obvious that the United States was eventually going to become involved in the war raging in Europe, the U.S. Army contacted 135 companies asking for working prototypes of a four-wheel-drive reconnaissance car. Only two companies responded to the request, The American Bantam Car Company and Willys-Overland. The Army had set what seemed like an impossible deadline of 49 days to supply a working prototype. Willys asked for more time but were refused. The bankrupt American Bantam Car Company had no engineering staff left on the payroll and brought in Karl Probst, a talented freelance designer from Detroit. After turning down an initial request from Bantam, Probst accepted the job after being asked again by the Army, and initially working without salary, went to work July 17, 1940. Probst completely laid out plans for the Bantam prototype, known as the BRC or Bantam Reconnaissane Car, in two days, and the next day estimated the total cost of the vehicle. On July 22, Bantam's bid was submitted, complete with blueprints. Much of the vehicle had to be assembled from existing off-the-shelf automotive parts, and the custom four-wheel drivetrain components were supplied by Spicer. The hand-built prototype was completed in Butler, Pennsylvania,[9] and driven to Camp Holabird, Maryland, for testing by the Army on 21 September 1940. The vehicle met the Army's criteria, but its engine did not meet the Army's torque requirements. Ford Pygmy and Willys MB The Army felt that the Bantam company was too small to supply the number of vehicles it needed, so it supplied the Bantam design to Willys and Ford who were encouraged to make their own changes and modifications. The resulting Ford "Pygmy" and Willys "Quad" prototypes looked very similar to the Bantam BRC (Bantam Reconnaissance Car) prototype and Spicer supplied very similar four-wheel drivetrain components to all three manufacturers. Fifteen hundred of each of the three models were built and extensively field-tested. Willys-Overland's chief engineer Delmar "Barney" Roos made design changes to meet a revised weight specification (a maximum of 1,275 lb (578 kg) including oil and water). He was thus able to use the powerful but comparatively heavy Willys "Go Devil" engine, and win the initial production contract. The Willys version of the car would become the standardized jeep design, designated the model MB and was built at their plant in Toledo, Ohio. The familiar pressed metal Jeep grille was actually a Ford design feature and incorporated into the final design by the Army. Since the War Department required a large number of vehicles to be manufactured in a relatively short time, Willys-Overland granted the United States Government a non-exclusive license to allow another company to manufacture vehicles using Willys' specifications. The Army chose Ford as the second supplier, but building Jeeps to the Willys' design. Willys supplied Ford with a complete set of plans and specifications. American Bantam, the creators of the first Jeep, spent the rest of the war building heavy-duty trailers for the Army....

The 55 wasn't running great as these two rivals, who are best friends, have at it. Again, thanks to Carl Sexsmith and Phil Anker for the photos from the 2006 event used in this 2007 video footage.

RIDING in the 750hp LSx Willys Jeep
It's been a LOOOONG time since a ride along has put such a HUGE smile on my face, as silly as it may seem, riding in this Jeep is more intense and crazy than a 1800hp TT Lambo (although a different kind of fun), it's almost like an amusement ride that tries to scare you. Hop onboard the 750hp Procharger & Nitrous Express powered LSx Willys!





Willys CJ3A Jeep-a-trench found in the woods
A year ago I found out about this old Willys Jeep. Earlier this past summer I tried to find it. I was not able to find it because of the thick greenery and weeds that had it well hidden, and the fact that I didn't have more exact and specifics of it's location on this property. I recently talked to the owner of this jeep and got more detailed directions of it's resting spot, and was able to find it.

Gassers At 131 Dragway In The '60s
This is an updated version of my video "Drag Racing In The '60s part 3". I made that video about three years ago and since then I have upgraded my photo and video editing software. I have been able to clean up the photos and video a bit and I added sound to the movies that I extracted from some recent video I took at the drags. I thought it would be fun to add some sound to the old 8mm movies. I also made it widescreen. The soundtrack is me jammin' on some Booker T and the MGs and CCR.
