Photo Gallery: Classic Jeeps in Malibu Creek State Park

We chose Malibu Creek State Park for our Jeep cover shoot because of its background status in one of the most iconic television shows of all time — M*A*S*H*. It also happens to be gorgeous, and the rough terrain suited our Willys MB, Jeep CJ2A and Jeep CJ5 perfectly.

    Some of your readers might find it interesting to know that an original Bantam Reconnaissance Car (BRC) turned up at a military vehicle show in N.J. this past April. Here is a link with pictures: http://g503.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=96&t=236482 The BRC in the pictures is #1234 (I didn't make that up!), and it is one of the 1500 BRCs assembled by Bantam for the government competition to determine which vehicle (BRC, Ford GP or Willys MA) would ultimately go into full production. The gauges and seats in the BRC are the same as those used in Bantam cars from the late 30's and early 40's. The four-cylinder engine is from Continental, and it is not the engine used in Bantam cars. The running gear is pretty recognizable to anyone who spends time with early jeeps (military or civilian). The BRC, without a doubt, is the "grand-daddy" to anything that is, or pretends to be, a jeep. Enjoy. Chris Sussex, N.J. 1946 CJ2A "Universal Jeep" #13396 (Built in early January 1946, it has a lot of MB and GPW parts. The Dana 25 rear is stamped "9-4-45"; two days after World War II ended.)

    Nice to see some pics of the old 20 Cent Fox set, I worked security on that set and was there when the Malibu Fire burned it and all the vehicles. I managed to grab the signage, the swamp door w/ dartboard and most of the still as the fire advanced on the set. The only sign I couldn't take was the large best care anywhere sign on the poles over the road.
