Absolutely beautiful! They are very rare here. In the northern 2/3 of the country they put salt on the roads to melt snow and ice. Any old Jeeps that were driven at all in the winter were eaten up by rust and scrapped long ago. Most of the ones that have survived are in museums or private collections and only brought out for special events. It must be 40 years or more since I've seen one being driven on the street. After the war they built a civilian model that was similar, but there are very few of them that have survived.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.
