    Original JP

    I found this earlier and thought I would share. It's amazing how versatile these things are. These machines were a critical piece to winning the war. Enjoy. Sorry the music is horrible....

    Wow. I'm going through Birmingham on Wednesday and Friday. I may make the trip a little longer and check out on Friday. I love my jk but the old JP's are my favorite.

    On that video, did you see where they wrapped it in a canvas and canoe'd it across the river! Incredible

    The canvas boat wrap was cool! They loved to get those things airborne for the camera too.
