Artist's Description

I salvaged this old photograph from my archives which was taken in 1975 using an old Pentax film camera. The subject is myself driving my M38A1 ( Military version of CJ5 ) Jeep built by the Kaiser
Jeep Corporation in 1954. They bought the company from Willy’s and then on-sold the company later to the Chrysler Corporation. The vehicle is stock-standard military except for a capstan winch fitted to the front bumper and driven off the crankshaft front pulley. The engine and instruments were all waterproofed enabling me to drive through quite deep water. That fooled many other 4 × 4 Club members until they realised it was waterproofed. This vehicle was imported from Vietnam, complete with two bullet holes in the back panel so she was a combat veteran indeed !
I make no apology for having no roll bar and crash helmet – that’s how it was in those days. I’m surprised that so many of us survived ! In the picture you will note the back righthand wheel has started to lift off the ground.
After doing my best to revive this old photograph I finished it off in Windows Photoshop – dry brush.

Please view large.
