What a nice pic! Both machines are from the same era and both very capable vehicles! Did some 4x4 track with a Willy's jeep once. Outperformed most modern 4x4's on the technical terrain. Very very slow though..

The Willys is fine up to about 60-kph. After that you start worrying about dubious brakes, no seat belt, no doors and no role over cage :shock:
