Ha! Von Zipper!
My Dad built three miniature ten wheelers the first one was featured in January 1955 Hotrod Magazine. the second pic is My Little Sister and I sometime in 1955 with the Lil Truck
I think some of these, updated with modern running gear are still working in some National Parks.
Pete Millar at Bakersfield, 1966.
I cut this ad out of the back of a magazine when I was about 8 and kept it in my dresser, and then in my billfold when I got one. The closest surplus auction then was at Hill AFB and I "heard" the Jeeps in a crate were still only $400-$450 but Dad wouldn't take time off from work for the 5 hour one way drive to bid on one so at 13 years old I used all my lawn mowing and poultry cleaning money to by a 1948 CJ-2A.
Thanks for the memories Keef!
