Shado-Jeep

tomtenerife
Hi, in 1991 I took a video on a local religious festival (called "Romeria") which took place on sunday 1st of september 1991 in Vilaflor, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain. Maybe I´ll have some time next weekend to cut off the video sequence (only some seconds) from my film (vhs-c) which I made during my holidays in autumn of 91. Here I send you a screenshot...

Regards, Thomas

Thanks for posting this Thomas!  

This is, of course, the SHADO jeep that was found on the Canary Islands a few years ago.  

The person who found it tried to find out why it was there, and after asking around, the best that they could come up with was that it was used for some movie that was filmed there, but nobody could remember what movie that was.

Obviously in 1991 it was in much better shape than when they found it in a junkyard.

I found some more information about the car in a movie database. They say the jeep was originally designed for another Film "Doppelgänger". But I´m quite sure you know this already:

Yes, of course... :-)

It was built for that movie in the late 1960s, then used in the UFO TV series in 1969 - 1970, then we're not sure where it was from then until 1991.  Rumor has it that it was used for a movie filmed on the volcano on Tenerife.

Hi again,

here is the short video-sequence made with VLC-player (windows media player doesn´t work well and makes the sequence even shorter...).

A few years after 1991 the vehicles that were used for such events had to pass technical examinations, so they soon disappeared. We could check if there are videos available in youtube from the Romeria San Roque in Vilaflor before or after 1991, where the jeep might have taken part.

Meanwhile I moved from Germany to Tenerife where I live since 2008  and in case I´ll meet people from Vilaflor I´ll ask them if they know something about this car.

I remember that UFO was one of the first TV-programs I was allowed to look in the early 70th when I was about 10 years old :-)....

Regards, Thomas

Thanks Thomas, that's very interesting!

Would you mind if I posted your video on my "UFO" Facebook page?  As I imagine it will be of interest to more people than just those who are here.

That would be this page:

Hi, seems that FB does not accept the video format. May be you have to convert it. No problem with that. Maybe I´ll write a comment in German and Spanish, so people can contact me with further questions.

Yes, Facebook didn't like the format when I tried it either.  So I converted it to an MP4, and Facebook accepted that.

Here is a link to add your comments/explanations:

Hi Marc, the current owner of the car, James WInch,  asked me to contact him with MSN, which I dont use due to security reasons, lol, so I asked him for a FB-friensship. Do you mind sending him a copy of your WMP-version of the video, which would be better than my VLC-version? Thanks in advance...Thomas

I don't mind sending it to him, but I consider your VLC-version to be the best / original version, since it hasn't been re-encoded.  :-)

... and I'm assuming that these 7 seconds is all the footage you have of the SHADO jeep?

Re: Shado-Jeep

Hi, yes, this is unfortunately the only scene with the jeep, even if there were some other unusual vehicles, e. g. a bus without roof, lol. On the same film I also have some shots of the so-called "moonscape", but this is a landscape created by nature and you can't enter it nowadays for environmental reasons. The area would otherwise be ideal for science fiction films:

Okay, please send him the VLC version, because I don't have his e-mail address.

Thanks,

Thomas
