Expedição Brasil Uruguai 2012: Novembro 2011

Mas, mesmo assim correrei este risco, por força da necessidade de ser justo com os veículos e seus adoradores. Costumo dizer que em relação ao jeep, há dois tipos de mulheres: as burras e as espertas. As burras dizem: – Ou eu ou o jeep! . As espertas ficam com os dois, o jeep e o marido (namorado, amante, agregado, parceiro etc). Vi também uma quadrinha rimada que assim dizia – “ a minha gata queria dar uma voltinha, Pegar meu jeep e sair por aí sozinha.

Disse pra ela que para mim estava claro, Deixe meu jeep e vá pro shopping com outro carro. Ela falou que era ela ou meu carro, Que não gostava de ficar suja de barro. Ai que saudades que eu sinto do seu perfume, Eu largo tudo, mas do jeep tenho ciúme. Mas não vamos radicalizar nem dispensar uma boa (no sentido figurado) companhia feminina. Photo by acgonzaga.

Handles and footboard - the side and rear handles were removed together with the right footboard for easier manoeuvrability into a Horsa. Spade and pickaxe brackets - also removed from the side for the same reason. Jerrycan holder - this was moved from the rear of the vehicle to between the two front seats.

Whilst watching a repeat of the Goodwood Revival on the TV over New Year 2010, my wife mentioned that she would like to go to the Goodwood Revival. I stated that I did not have a suitable vehicle only to be told "why don't you restore that old jeep? " Like a fool I said great idea. The vehicle was dragged out from the back of our storage unit and totally dismantled. She was in a bad way! The chassis had been badly repaired and was also bent. The body was equally bad, floors shot, rear panel missing, rear quarters shot, glove box internals cut away etc. In hind sight it would have been cheaper to have bought a new chassis and body but then it's a replica not a 1942 Ford Jeep. The chassis was totally dismantled and the legs straightened on our jig. The body tub was then painted next and then fitted onto the completed rolling chassis.

Em 1953, três amigos a bordo de um CJ-3B do mesmo ano, se aventuraram numa viagem de mais de 70.000 km, subindo as Américas e chegando até o Alasca.
