Here's a picture that will make every Jeep owner wish they had a time machine!  Sure would like to find some of that rare equipment shown on some of those vehicles.  Below is the text that accompanied this picture.

THOUSANDS AT MINNEAPOLIS SEE FULL LINE DISPLAY OF 'JEEP' PRODUCTS

Twelve 'Jeep' vehicles on display at Centennial Plaza, in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, attracted hundreds of spectators during their four-day stand July 8 through 11.  The vehicles along with several specialized equipment units were furnished by area dealers, and salesmen from the Twin City dealerships manned the show along with district manager Jack Ballantine and Mr. Paul Sutton, Fleet Sales representative from the factory.
Tuesday, July 9 was designated "Fleet Day," and special invitations were sent to state and city officials, local public utilities representatives and other area fleet buyers.  Four sales were made as a result of the exhibit and twenty-eight excellent prospects were obtained.
