Bonjour, cher Ike,
Merci pour ces deux publications de ce véhicule qui passe les années avec succès.
La couleur attire immédiatement le regard.

I'm a sucker for old cars.
They seem to have such character and this truck is determined to take the limelight with its vibrant colours, as well as its style! I actually like the w/s photograph better as it portrays the roguish nature of the vehicle.
You have got up nicely close to capture the fine details and have conveyed them to us succinctly.
Have a great Sunday,

Hello dear Ike,
That's the beauty of the simplicity ! Almost 50 years old but still having it's unique character.
Good job done.
TFS and have a nice weekend

Not a make of vehicle I am familiar with. The bright yellow paintwork is very eye-catching and makes a fine photographic subject. Excellent realisation.
ourania (46288) 2014-07-13 3:40
thanks to a friend, I've started being interested in Willys, their old use and their restoration. I like everything about this vehicle, I'm glad you found it and offered us a thorough and delightful presentation of it. It looks both as a very competent car and as a toy:) It must have taken a lot of work to restore it so well and its owner should be proud of it. Both pictures are lovely, with excellent sharpness, light and colour management. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

The tight frame is putting the truck in evidence. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the Willy truck. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

NERHABA DEAR IKE...
macjake (68476) 2014-07-13 4:33
I guess we're going to have to wait until John tells us more about this unique truck :)
So glad you added the WS photo. In fact, i think i prefer that WS photo because we get a sense of the trucks personality up front :)
however, here we get to see the bed in the back and the strange placement of the extra tire.
cool find in the streets!
mirosu (16265) 2014-07-13 5:08
I hope you are safe. I also hope that the piece will return to your country soon.
Nice view to this jeep truck. Very nice color and superb close up photo from excellent viewpoint.
Very well done.
Wish you all the best.

I love the bright yellow colour of this old truck. A good diagonal composition and great clarity. Very well seen and taken.
Kind Regards, Ann
ChrisJ (114657) 2014-07-13 10:23
The yellow truck contrasts well against the steely blue grey asphalt road. The diagonal axis adds dynamism. Good sharpness, density levels and saturation. Good shadow detail and effective tight framing. Have a safe and happy week!
Cricri (120143) 2014-07-13 10:37
Deux belles images de ce véhicule ancien bien entretenu, une couleur jaune qui attire en plus le regard, belle présentations
jcpix (13930) 2014-07-13 10:56
Proof once more, you don't need to travel far to find some of the best material! :) What a great find, this trucks yellow color really stands out against the gallery of images. A simple scene, but one which carries a lot of interest and novelty. On the technical side, you did a great job balancing the varied light, there's good detail to make out in virtually every aspect of the frame. Looks to be in good shape too, someone has cared well for this old timer. :) Have a pleasant evening. Take care.
mcmtanyel (23327) 2014-07-13 21:23
Now, that is one well-preserved beauty! It deserves a dedicated battery of Iron Dome missiles. Well seen and rendered, thanks for sharing this classic truck with us.
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-07-14 1:34
very stylish car and the one which draw my attention as well. I love its bright yellow color which makes the whole picture so cheerful. Well presented in this tighter framing with good quality sharpness, colors and contrast.
Thanks for sharing
All the best

Ike, what a beauty!! such an impressive truck, the bright yellow is very attractive, it looks great to me and I'm sure that is still running!!
Waylim (25502) 2014-07-14 17:53
This is a very nice and charming image of the jeep. Really give a strong sense of nostalgic. Excellent POV, good colors and light. I like the close up approach and the crop bring us closer to the subject.
delpeoples (58288) 2014-07-15 4:33
Ciao dear Ike
What a cute car, it has weathered the decades very well and still looks very stylish, probably more stylish than it did in the 50s or 60s. I know that our car lovers here on TE would be salivating over this beautiful example of classic car. The light, colours and sharpness are exquisite.
Well done, I hope you are keeping well, dear friend
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-07-15 6:49
It's impossible to miss this bright yellow jeep, good accident deterrent. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
abmdsudi (54565) 2014-07-15 7:35
This is some 60 odd years old WW2 Willys still looking good well restored & modifiid in excellent shape, great someone cares for this lovely good old vehicle. Looks like the owner is having great fun with that colour! something for him to be proud off. A pleasure to see so much to enjoy and take in. That's the delights of nostalgia! Well done shot, tfs
adramad (45994) 2014-07-15 16:06
Great composition with this old model truck, I remember seeing in movies, its yellow color, gives more attraction to this splendid composition.
Good management of the brightness and sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Have a good day.
Didi (60588) 2014-07-16 8:51
Interesting view on this yellow truck
rolling since 1947, the vehicle has been very well preserved
Gigidusud (21151) 2014-07-17 14:00
Beautiful yellow Willys truck well captured, nice the other version in WS too. Well done!
photoray (13981) 2014-07-17 14:11
A rare sight anymore here in the U.S., though the Willys were popular with outdoor enthusiasts in the 1950s, but reduced in popularity by more modern 4 wheel drive vehicles after then.
While tramping about on dirt and sand I could have used a Willys. I learned to carry a shovel to dig out when stuck.
Thanks for sharing,
And best wishes for peace at home ASAP
nikkitta (17066) 2014-07-17 18:23
I like old vehicles that this well kept one, I remember seeing some of them at work inside rural areas in Argentina, green or grey I believe
This with the yellow is more eye catching
Well done, congrats
Te deseo unos dias tranquilos y en paz
fabbs99 (17167) 2014-07-17 23:04

jmdias (64962) 2014-07-19 2:43
during 1970's my father had some willies similar with this, but not so old. very nice details of the vehicle and its excellent conditions. I liked the light, framing and sharpness. TFS.
Miguel82 (27646) 2014-07-22 15:43
That old jeep is still in good condition Ike, useful link about the brand, good light utilisation and sharpness, regards
emka (98810) 2014-07-26 3:58
I like such old cars and always dream about going somewhere with one. But it has never happened. Old car, maybe just like me but much better preserved :). Nice yellow colour. I am sure that the owner love it and care for it as for family member.
I hope you are well. Have a good weekend
clic (17129) 2014-08-14 11:43
Unless I am mistaken, it looks like the ancestor of those dark green sturdy Jeeps for military use.
Looks quite suitable for drunk teenagers riding after the 'last call' for beer on Saturday nights!
fotka (4471) 2014-08-19 6:15
Eye catching truck through its yellow color. Nicely restored to its beauty.
Good diagonal composition with perfect colors, light and sharpness.
baddori (20147) 2014-12-18 2:25
E' superba ma un mdello più recnte e di uso pic up ....country people.
E' nell'immaginario del sud est asiatico ... ibus-jepp con gli ornamenti. Un a foto da ollezionisti di immagini. Spesso i "veri" collezionisti le tengono in luoghi riparati dagli agenti atmosferici.
