Vintage Military Vehicle Collection

This past Sunday South Florida Jeep Club had the privilege of seeing an awesome vintage military vehicle collection. The owner of the collection Mr. Fred Perkins allowed have us a tour and shared the history of the particular vehicle itself and the role it served. His collection while rich with WWII era Jeeps also contained armor personnel carriers, duce and 1/2's, a tank and many other vehicles. Thought I would share some pictures and a link...

That looks pretty cool! I love WW2 history.... tanks, jeeps, planes, personnel carriers, boats, and the stories.

How about an invite next time!

I happened upon a sign that said "Air Show Today" on the side of the road last year. It was by New Smyrna Airport. My buddy and I followed it to the side of the airport where it looks like they restore aircraft. The had a b16? bomber there, a couple of p-51 mustangs, a tank, and some other cool stuff. It was free to get in, and you could walk right up and get in most of the planes! There were some vet's there with some cool stories too.

Edit- Here is the link to their website. Check out some of the current and past projects!
