Long Gone John’s Eugene the Jeep

May 04, 11

If there’s one thing collectors enjoy even more than their own collections, it’s something another collector has managed to obtain somehow on the sly.  Usually rare, and definitely interesting.

Sure, I have my Six Million Dollar Man pinball machine and my Count Chocula cels, but I don’t have Long Gone John’s Eugene the Jeep.

The Jeep was my second favorite character on Popeye after Wimpy.  Just look here how he holds that corner together.

I’ve never seen another one remotely like this one. Pops right out against the brilliant purple wall.  I’m sure it’s close to one of a kind.
