Jumping Jeepnis

Alan Ginet displays his pride and joy Saturn Jeepney that has travelled all the way from the Phillipines where it was once hand-made and custom built out of aluminium in the decades following the American occupation of the islands after ww2, when the salvaged and imported American parts were used, put together then reinvented as ‘Jeepneys’, and have been iconic symbols of Filipino transport ever since. Alan tells me this is one of the finest remaining original examples from the post war era.
