It’s March and finally we can start to think about the promise of spring, regrowth, warmth, the promise of being able to drive topless again and yep, parades! This photo that is dated as coming from March of 1953 also hails from St. Petersburg, Florida where the weather is probably just about right to think about a parade of beauty pageant contestants! I hadn’t noticed until just now as I tried to zoom in on the windshield frame to determine whether the CJ was a 2A or 3A that it appears to be a split windshield 2A. I believe those are the shadows of tool indents making this a very early civilian (VEC) as well?
The year is still early and you can still order and enjoy the 2012 calendar that features 17 new and never before seen photos of the jeep from throughout the years! New this week, is also available on Pinterest which is sort of a visual Twitter where I’ll be posting update photos as well as other neat links to jeep history that I’ve found online. And we’ll also be available on Flickr where you can view our Photostream as well as other great photos available from other jeep lovers’ streams. Check back next week for more of the timeless jeep!
