Family Guns premier

IMA held a premier on September 7th of their new TV show “Family Guns”.  They pulled out all the stops with a huge screen on the lawn in front of the warehouse, wonderful food, tables under a tent, and an open warehouse to explore.  WW2 military vehicles were lined up on the grass.  Below is a shot of the Jeep we rebuilt for them next to a “Seep”.

I took my friend Randy’s wife and son.  Laurie looked at the Seep (the Jeep version of a Schwimmwagen) and immediately nicknamed it the “duckling”  That just gave me a wonderful image.  Picture a WW2 DUKW surrounded by a bunch of these “ducklings”!!  Below is a shot of Chris, Paul and I with the 1945 GPW.

Happily the warehouse was open to the public. Randy’s son was in heaven exploring all the WW2 German gear.  The British cannon below was just one of many beautiful pieces in the warehouse.

And here is a shot in their main showroom.

The first episode of the show aired this evening and was great fun to watch.  Make sure to catch our episode on Sept 26th at 10pm.

Just a note on prices represented on the episode (before people start looking for a deal!!)  Pricing did not include items taken in trade. Plus this Jeep had an immaculate drivetrain including a rebuilt engine and many original F script parts.  So the main overhaul of the Jeep included major frame welding, steel work on the body, and then it was a huge amount of cosmetics and re-assembly.
