Photo of the week: Jeep

Every since I was a kid and first rode in my brother in laws old Jeep I have loved them. The jeep Lawrence had was an M38A1 mid 50’s version. It was strictly a hunting vehicle without brakes, tags or registration. However, later on he got an older WWII version that was painted red and it was street legal. I remember riding in the topless open Jeep with my sister.

As Beth and I made a short road trip yesterday I spotted this old warrior rusting away. I wish I had the money to buy it and rescue it. I get the same feeling animal lovers do when they see an animal in the pound.

It is an M version from the WWII/Korean war era. Original front and rear seat and front bumper. If ol’ LEH was still alive we would be dickering on that jeep. Not long before he passed away he had expressed the desire to get another old Jeep ” Just to have something to tinker on”

This is a 3 exposure HDR processed in Photomatix and Nik filters Tonal contrast.
