Almost simultaneously with the re-discovery and re-acquisition of my Scrambler, Peterson's 4-Wheel & Off-Road reprinted a four-page 1981 review of the Scrambler in their May, 2016, issue. It included a comparison of the newly-introduced CJ8 with a 1929 Model A Roadster pickup (see below). Since my neighbor owns a 1930 Model A, I thought I would create my version of the photos that appeared in the magazine...and maybe improve on them a bit. My neighbor's truck is a 1930 Model A Closed Cab Pickup. He has owned it for 50 years. His truck was manufactured in early 1930 and has a 1929 body since the '29 commercial truck bodies were continued to mid-1930. They made good use of leftover parts in those days.

A very nice recreation of the photos. The scenery you have as a backdrop is amazing. It's hard to find a single adjective..............God's work.

Looking at that you realise our Heeps are just a natural progression

My goodness. Those pics are just so beautiful. It always amazes me when you post pics. I want to see that every day when I leave my house. I hope that you don't take those views for granted. I am guessing not since you seem to know how to photograph them. Wow.

Well said, I feel exactly the same!
