Cool a little youtube fun

there's a raft of jeep stuff on there:

here's a smarmy Brit running a cheesy wrangler DIESEL vs a WWII vintage Jeep for a couple of tests.



there's a ton of other semi interesting vids.

If that would have been a manual rubicon with the rear locked out, it would have climbed right up that hill.

....clueless? turned the lights out and drove thru the brush???

sounded special alright!

Thanks for the vid link...that's exactly what I drove with my buddy in high school circa 1961-2. Amazing where you could go with 60 hp! But 70+mph? No way!
