Our Cars

While we were at Kagnew, most of us couldn't have survived without our wheels. Anything from old Fiat Balillas to a wide array of American cars, (I saw a '53-'54 Corvette one time and never saw it again) to jeeps, trucks and whatever we could find to get around. On this page I will honor those special vehicles that helped us survive our trips up and down "the hill" and around Asmara and Eritrea.

If you have a picture of your wheels, please contact me and send me the best one you have and I'll get the pictures posted.
