Baseball, Apple Pie, The Sherman and Jeep


Recommended Posts

Of course you could also throw in the C-47, However....I do not do planes very often.

 

The Sherman....what need's to be said! America's Version of the T34. Over 48,000 were produced between 1942 and 1945. The Israeli's used heavily modified Shermans into the late 1980s and Chileans used them into the mid 1990s. Just goes to show we make a mean product!

Again, what can be said? Nothing exemplifies American innovation like the Jeep! It was more versatile than the Sherman or any wheeled vehicle of it's time.
