So Jerry................

I just LOVE THE SMELL OF CHEAP FAKE CHICOM PLASTIC AND ARTIFICIAL RUBBER IN THE MORNING!..........AKA: ching-chow-lo-hung-dung-sheep-yeep.

Sadly, I'm in the midst of reducing my inventory of rolling stock due to space issues and the need of valuable original parts for the bins in my warehouse.

Yesterday I pulled an old faded yellow 1953 Willys CJ-3B Universal Jeep from my yard that has been sitting in the open since 1993. We will strip her down to the last bolt, nut, washer and cotter pin tomorrow. She has at least ten thousand dollars worth of original parts on her all made in America, by Americans citizens with 100% American produced iron, steel, aluminum and a minor amount of American Bakelite plastic and genuine RUBBER. The original military type tires have zero pressurized air in them but still stand firm.

The last new Jeep that I own is my 2006 TJ Wrangler Rubicon with less than six thousand miles on it. Even though it has always been garaged, early this year I had to do a complete remove and replace of every cheap fake item of plastic, rubber and fabric to include replacement of the entire seats on the vehicle. For something always marketed as "tough, rugged, off the highway capable, bla, bla, bla", the vehicle is a total piece of shit for it's thirty five thousand dollar price tag. All intentional though, no different than every other product sold in the former USA now. No manufacturer of ANY product wants it to last more than a very few years so you gotta buy a new one! Also, every single replacement part that I get a "good deal" on was also made in ChiCom land.

That cheap ChiCom (Jeep) is probably what we will encounter by the hundreds of thousands when our ground troops get sent to slaughter in the soon to come NORK fight. It'll be like hoards of swarming red fire ants pouring out of their shit holes with their only battle plan being to overwhelm us with sheer numbers. We won't or don't have enough Apache gunships or killer drones to take out enough of them to even make a minor dent in the hoard.

The newer YJ Jeeps are the cheapest yet overpriced examples of limited lifetime crap ever produced with the Jeep brand attached. Just go to any junk yard to see them piled up in line after line. No Willys Jeep ever suffered the insult of a junk yard death as they were always built tough with the best materials and with pride by Americans in America.

Funny thing though, the Gooks did manage to acquire quite a few Willys Jeeps to include Universal Jeeps given to them by WHO and various other jerk-off charity groups. They didn't last long though, especially when our Charlie Model Huey gunships caught them in the open.

Factoid..............

Mahindra of India was one of the first to contract out the overseas production of several Willys Jeep models and still does. They produce the Willys models CJ-3B, the CJ-5 and the CJ-6 today, virtually identical in every respect to the original Willys specs.

They produce the military M606 (modified CJ-3B) for the Indian government.

I buy and import thousands of dollars of their parts every year that are 100% direct replacements for Willys Jeep models going back to 1945, all of the highest quality. I have hundreds of customers that buy replacement parts for their Mahindra Jeeps outside of India to include Japan, most of Africa and South America.

As for "45 mph? WTF?" How fast did any cars go in 1950? Road conditions in those times now long gone were horrific. How fast do you think a 134 cubic inch four cylinder engine with 70 horse power can push a one thousand pound truck?

Years back I was able to acquire over 100 Mahindra military M606 Jeeps that had been imported through Mexico and held by the US Customs at El Centro CA because they didn't meet US DOT standards. I basically got them for free but they had to be demolished before I could take them off of their hands. Talk about filling my shelves with parts! I hired ten guys in Calexico, gave them the tools and cutting torches then let em at it. I still have an uncut body tub that I managed to sneak away that is far superior to any Willys Jeep ever produced.

As available for "off road use only" that's a hoot, just look at all of the crap tooling down the road today. Ever see the highway safety rating for a three wheeler or a new quad? Might as well be a fly on the windshield when in a head-on with a ten thousand pound Ford or Dodge truck.

And Jerry, that little diesel engine that they put in them is of the highest quality. I get calls all of the time from USA Willys owners that want to replace their old worn out gasoline fed 4-134's with something a little more high tech.

Thank you Jim for the history lesson as a proud Jeep owner/fan I had no idea about this part of it's proud heritage. I now look at the original article in a different light. Closer to an original Jeep than the modern version I tool around Scottsdale in.

I guess jj's knowledge of the cars of 1950 is limited, as more than a few cars on the road, most actually, could go well over 40-45 mph. You can start with the Old's Rocket 88 1950 model with a top speed of around 100, with most passenger cars at around 65-80. The Hudson Hornet for instance in the 40's, along with the Packard, Chrysler, and other's could get down the road pretty damn good. The 45 mph top speed fits cars from the 30's, but that didn't last long. https://www.anythingaboutcars.com/1940scars.html

Many of the older four-wheelers were geared incredibly low. I had a '66 Landcruiser back in the 70's that had a strong straight 6 (copied from an old GM design), but the three speed was geared so low I could only get it up to around 50 miles per hour. I believe with a modern configuration, the Toyota could have easily done 60-70 mph.

Reminds them of a big solid American Turd, something the squirters can't produce.

Ever walk under a highway bridge in Me-Hee-Ko?

My '51 CJ3A has 5:38 gears. Most I have gotton out of it is about 60mph. I am pretty sure we were going down hill.
