I recently picked up some new World War 2 era ads from my friends at American Art Archives. The ads are pretty typical of the patriotic stance that manufacturers took during the war, but are also telling of the way that the public looked at the new tools and vehicles of modern warfare including, of course, the jeep. The jeep is featured right there as a common background to the military and war context in which the products are shown. The products and the advertising that is used to describe them are partnered in context along with the jeep and the modern soldier, “modern, dependable, enduring, power and precision.” Not only did the advertiser promote their patriotism but their product as well. You can view the full sized ads by clicking here to view them and many more ads in their albums. here. It’s now the perfect time to start thinking about Xmas gifts for the jeep lover in your life. The This-Old-Jeep.com online marketplace has tons of gift ideas that you can view here and through tomorrow for the Black Friday weekend there also alot of sales happening. You can find them and the store here.

here to be taken to the store link for the t-shirt. Through this weekend you can get $5 off any t-shirt and 30% off any case, calendar or mug. Just enter VETERANSALE5 at checkout. And thank you again to my sister, my sister in law, my wife’s uncle and mother in law for their contributions and the memory of my third great grandfather John Lasher, a Civil War vet and survivor of Andersonville and to a distant uncle in the Revolutionary War. Thank you!

This-Old-Jeep.com Zazzle store marketplace. What jeep t-shirt collection would be complete without a cutaway F-Head or an Andy Warhol homage to his silkscreens with an early MB/CJ-1 prototype? The simple but beautiful illustrations from a soon to be shown early brochure made for another fanciful listing of ‘future’ civilian jeep uses. Hope that you enjoy them and look for another six t-shirts to be released over the next week or two and soon, the all new 2012 This-Old-Jeep.com calendar will be here!
