I actually like what you've received here, really like what you are saying and the way in which you say it. You are making it entertaining and you still take care of to stay it sensible. I can't wait to learn far more from you. This is actually a tremendous website.

Great collection of pictures.  Did you spot any of the WWII
1 1/2 Ford Cargo trucks (GTB) in Burma.  These were called "Burma Jeeps" but the reason is unknown as no one has produced any documentation that they were used in Burma.

The photos in this album are of jeeps that I took on a trip to Burma in Jan 2006 to travel along the Ledo Road.  I know liitle about jeeps but some I know are from WWII.  There are lots of jeeps in Burma ranging from the WWII versions to some very modern very cool jeeps that I have never seen in this country.  Please add comments.

The next jeeps were parked just outside the Myitkyina airport.  They looked WWII to me but ??.

I saw many jeeps of this style but could never fiquire out if this was a very cool custom job of a WWII jeep or a modern retro-looking jeep

This jeep I know is a WWII jeep as it has been in the Burmanese owners family since WWII.  He claims it was the personal jeep of a B.General in the Kachin rangers that was attached to OSS Detachment 101. Not quite sure how his family ended up with it, may be they were related to the general or may be the general's driver that kept the jeep.

The engine has been replaced but I think the owner said he still had the original engine.

These guys were making a cowl for the jeep behind them. They are using a short segment of pipe and a flat body iron to pound it out.  It looked like the were construting the jeep behind them panel by panel and evidently by hand.

This is a WWII jeep belonging to a Pakistan family leaving across from our hotel.  The grandfather worked on the Ledo Road as a machanic  was still alive and living with them.  He still had some of his WWII documentation-ID, pay records, manuals.

Khine our guide out early on the streets.  I was told that a lot of WWII jeeps came into town early in the morning from outlaying villages so I got up early to see but it didnt happen that day. Maybe it wasnt market day.

There was quite alot of these more modern looking jeeps which were very attractive in styling.  Have no idea who was manufacturing them.

There was so many jeeps it was impossible to photographs them all with time available.  My problem I could not always tell the WWII jeep from later ones, especially if they had been modified.  I think I could safety say that Mandalay is probably the jeep capitol of the world because of the number of jeeps you seen on the streets.  I haven't been in the western states in a number of years and I know jeeps are popular for off road so I could be wrong.
