Jeeps were on their way out when I first enlisted in the military. My motor transport operator school had us learn how to drive military trucks on one. It was the only time I saw one; after that, it was replaced by the CUCV (pronounced CUC-V), which is like an SUV. That was replaced by the Hummer.
So “Jeep in a Crate” caught my eye. It was actually a scam–get people to buy the government auction lists, but there are some pictures of jeeps being packed for shipping overseas during World War II. I wonder if the original shape was designed exactly so they could be packed into a crate and then loaded in a shipping container.
And if you want entertainment, check out the story that follows the jeep article for Nazis and flying saucers.
