Theme # 244 " Public ( Military ) Transportation"


My wife and I needed some relaxation so we took a nice Sunday afternoon drive out on Eastern Long Island. It's a very rural area with a lots of farms and wineries. We stopped at the Hallockville Museum Farm which was having their annual LIAPA Tractor Pull and Show with demonstrations and displays of antique farm machinery by the Long Island Antique Power Association. In addition to the antique farm machinery there was displayed all kinds of antique cars and trucks. This Jeep is a original 1948 and in good running condition and shape. We got there late which worked to our advantage as the spectators were at a minimum. I couldn't resist to take this shot with the two flags and the bright blue sky. As you can see I used my polarizer to full advantage. A couple of links on the history of the jeeps are below.

  2. You blow me away Eddy, who ever heard of Public Military, - What an OXYMORON, that's like Military Intelligence or Women's Logic.

  3. Nicely done - my grandparents had one of these and my dad and uncle converted it to a golf cart (looong story). Brought back memories.
