Tons of War-era Jeeps, aircraft, vintage clothing and movie costumes make the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum's World War II Weekend unforgettable. On Saturday, June 4, we went in to photograph the Jeeps and military vehicles on display there. Among a ton of awesome rigs, we found a Ward LaFrance Wrecker lifting a Jeep (pictured above with toy MB), a GTB Burma Jeep and an awesome view of the tarmac.

Still wrapped up and in the crate from 1944.
Everyone who enters the showroom of Army Jeep Parts, Inc. in Levittown, Pa. will be greeted by this exceptional piece of World War II Jeep history. It's a Willys MB engine and it's as original as it comes. Not only is it still sitting in the factory crate from 1944 (June, specifically), but the starter and generator are still in the wear-proof wrapping and the clutch assembly plate is still sealed in the box.

David Egerton gets down to nuts and bolts with an army classic.
At first glance it may have looked like a navy jeep, but it wasn't. It was the work of a U.S. Air Force mechanic who turned the old Ford Jeep into his personal beach Jeep. Though the body and the frame matched, the old army jeep sported a CJ hood, grill, civilian tires and had its back end cut out.
