Just gorgeous and has me re-reading Travels with Charlie.
Love to see more off road features please.
Never miss a petrolicious video, and there is nothing I love to watch more than a rare Porsche or Ferrari with lineage and history and a cracking exhaust note, but somehow this video has them all beat. Really a window into a different time.
awsome job on this jeep
Thoroughly enjoyed watching this. Many thanks for sharing it with us!
I think the story is great , it reminds me of my youth my father was in WW 2 and I have a picture of him standing next to his jeep over in Germany right after the war was over . My dad had a Harley I have pictures of also. He gave to the MP’s when he was discharged . We also had an old teardrop we went camping in but unfortunately it got swept away in the Agnes flood of 1976 where we camped with it at the old jelly stone park by the river in W Va… Read more »
Absolutely wonderful. Thank you for sharing!
Now I miss my Wrangler more than ever. Awesome story.
Far and away one of top stories presented by the folks at Petrolicious. Really appreciate the tone and delivery of this story, earnest storytelling and authentic 50s-60s Americana. Well done.
Amazing story full of good vibes and emotions.
Such a great film. Thank you Larry and Petrolicious.
This goes down as one of my Favourites.
Fantastic Camera work , as usual, and a Great car/trailer combo with such a passionate Owner.
I’ve known Larry and his family since I was a child. Larry has taught me so much about cars, boats and engines, and his Mom and Dad were special. I love this video so very much, such a well done job by Petrolicious, thank you!
@ GaryT, happened to me as well.
What a great film and story. There was an article about this car a few weeks or month back and that was great as well. I even learned a bit, it does not take much for a nice and happy vacation, a trailer hitch (even on a Prius) and a tear drop trailer and off you can go.
Thanks so much Petrolicious and Larry Shank, the little film made my day
This brought tears to my eyes after seeing the spot where he played the film and him going up the Jeep’s steps.
What an amazing video!!! That gentleman is sooo luckey to have that history and memories along with that Jeep!!!! This video made my day when I watched it!!!
Thanks, Petrolicious for finding all of these great autos and the stories that go with them!
not a jeep person, but phenomenal story and vehicle. it’s a shame he doesn’t have a kid to pass on his story, rig and integrity
He is living in the past ! But I think, everybody here are !
As others have said, great story, great film…as usual. Thanks!
Really great story.
Outstanding film, as always. Superb choice for the story, and very inspirational, too. As the father of two preschool aged kids, makes me want to head out as a family and find our own places in the world, far away from screens and indoor air. I may not have an off road vehicle, but it’s clear that as great as that would be, it’s about the adventure, conversations and bonding that give life to the machines beneath us.
This makes me want to sell the 911 and head for the hills with the little one. Really a great story!!
What if you could keep the 911, but still find those hills?
Don’t sell the 911. I have one and nothing can replace them.
Don’t sell the 911. Keep it AND get a Jeep.
Wow!!! What an amazing rig/setup, but more importantly, the story. What a powerful story. Great job as always.
