*Note: Thanks to Chuck Chriss, Webmaster of www.olive-drab.com for identifying several of the Military vehicles for me.
And what a collection of vehicles it was. Here are just a few of the personal vehicles owned by Mapping Mission personal.
Jack Miller's (red) Opel Record.
Jack's other car, an Austin Princess (1955) found with his son Steve behind the British Embassy in 1967 or early 1968, and restored by Jack and sons with help from Ato Gebre Makonnen's son Makonnen. Sold in the summer of 1970 to Capt. Earl Prechtel.
Earl Prechtel's "Poor man's Rolls Royce". Earl says:"I sure did have fun with that car... it attracted a lot of attention when I shipped it home." Editors note: Earl took that car back to Ft. Rucker where he drove it until he had to sell it when he transfered back overseas.
John Cardwell's 57 Chevy.
