History repeats... Again

Those of you that knew me between 1999 and 2001 may remember me mostly as covered in grease, smelling like exhaust, lost in the woods, and half asphyxiated from carbon monoxide. Well, I am thrilled to say that those days are here again!



Thanks to one of my excellent feild agents and associates in Albuquerque I am now the third owner of this 1942 Ford GPW. The first two owners being the US Army Air Corp, and a guy named Louie. What you are looking at is a completely unrestored, original WWII army jeep! From what I understand, it was sold right off Kirtland AFB right after the war ended and has been in NM ever since. It looks like it even has its original paint!





HAH! 45 MPH? I know that no military vehicle in history has ever been held to their max speed. I believe chestocrates can verify that this vehicle will do more than that as it enters the water!





It might be a shame to cover that original paint job...

The Sophist has been on a bit of a rat-rod kick recently. Before you suggest it... this is the right way to rat rod a jeep... It is a possibility. Brohiem... how is that class 3 license coming?



It is almost in this condition already... just loose the arctic top and windshield... Add some weapons...

I am not going to help you fix this one up. As for the class III, i am here and cant get all the back ground checks, however with my conceal carry i can hold the weapons i do have at the ready, so we can roll semi-auto at the moment. although i can get you a stovepipe mount for the back. So i will see what magic i can work on that, but it wont be back stateside until december. Ill let you know. Stay safe dude.

When did you ever stop being "covered in grease, smelling like exhaust, lost in the woods, and half asphyxiated from carbon monoxide"?? That's how I remember you.

B: Look how beautiful it is already! It doesn't even need to be fixed up! I just might need someone to hold the spark plug again... let me know if you see anything!

A: I was going to counter that I haven't been lost in the woods recently... but I guess that isn't true either. This should allow it to happen much deeper and farther from help though! As for the exhaust, etc... yea...

if I remember correctly, it could easily surpass 45mph, even with all of its major systems plugged with rotting organic material and water. A couple of those jeeps with the tops cut off, and we'll be ready as fuck for the THUNDERDOME.

rock and roll, motherfuckers!
