This is a great testament to the design of the Willys Jeep! About 8 soldiers pull up on a main street in Halifax , Nova Scotia , on a holiday demonstration. They're in a standard issue, WWII-type, Willys Jeep. In the span of about 2 to 3 minutes they completely disassemble the vehicle and reassemble it and drive off in it - fully operable! The idea being, to show the genius that went into the making of the jeep and its basic simplicity. Fantastic!

not standard issue, its been prepped so that they could do that but it is neat none the less....they wouldnt be able to do that with just any old military jeep they come across....

I'm sure glad it was Willy's jeep and not his Willy!

Rattler, I just like to see the military received well for all their efforts and I thought it pretty neat as well.

its a cool video but you can see the exhaust system isnt tied to the frame, guessing the headlights and gauges arent connected and the coolant system isnt full.....but once all that is prepped and the tub not screwed in tight to the frame yeah they do come apart like that.....nothing added really so they could do it but some prep work has been done ahead of time so they could do it that fast....

My first (four wheeled) vehicle was a '47 Willy's. Good memories.

Yeah I've seen this before.

Definitely a highly modified "take down" version of a willys.

I suppose I admire the practiced speed and meticulous military timing of it all.....

But it could just as well be a stack of wooden boxes or a dozen rubics cube puzzles or crew served weapons etc.

Because I'm prior military I appreciate the practiced timing of this performance.

But, because I'm also a gear head.... I share rattler's view points as well.

grin



Something clever here.

A local fellow was in (if I remember correctly)a Marine Reserve artillery unit. His outfit won a competition at camp for getting their field gun set up and a blank round fired off the fastest. They were in our local July 4th parade. When they reached the main intersection of town, they demonstrated their speed at setting up and firing. A friend of mine was returning with the ambulance from a run to CR. On the radio chatter, he heard that there were broken plate glass windows on Main Street in our town. He got on and asked if it was vandalism and was told, "No, cannon fire."

Interesting -- like many of Rattler's posts!

Rattler is one of the Campfire denizens that I'd like to meet sometime.

Mine was a 1946 CJ2A Willys. Those guys couldn't have done that with mine. It wasn't modified. Bought it in 1966, sold it in 1996. Many, many miles way out in the boonies, and many, many fond memories. grin
