No guess for the history of it.....

G'day Steven

dunno about the vehicle .... but down here in Oz at the moment unleaded petrol is from $1.45 to $1.65 depending upon city vs outback ... I just filled up at $A1.55/Litre = $6 per US gallon

We've learned to live with those prices
Regards, Phil

Hey Guys

Steve, right now in the UK the average price of unleaded is 1.36 a litre or $8.96 for a gallon on gas. 80-90% of that is TAX .. apparently it goes towards maintaining the roads and the like... yeah right...

Cheers

Harj

PS.. whats history on the Jeep ??

Which is why you don't tend to buy and drive the big porker SUVs that are all over the place in the US, like gasoline-propelled cockroaches. You could land a helicopter on the roof of some of them.

There's going to be an interesting collision in the near future, I think. Gasoline prices in the US are expected to continue to rise, but the fuel-economical Japanese cars (e.g. Honda Civic) are going to be unavailable as soon as late this summer, until the Japanese factories that were making the semiconductors that go into the cars, get back into production. Meanwhile, Ford Motor Company has a few very good and fuel-economical cars available now. I think Ford is going to do well this summer and autumn.

It seems like everywhere I park my little Chevy I'm surrounded on all sides by Expeditions and over-sized pickup trucks. There are a lot of people down here who don't give a rat's rear what gas costs.

And when you're stuck behind one on a street or highway, you can't see in front of them so your safety level (reaction ability) goes way, way down.

There are a lot of non US people around the world who have the perception that the US "with 10% of the world's population consumes 50% of the world's petroleum products ~ and that's not fair, it's not sharing the world's resources etc etc"

- now while the numbers may be inaccurate, the perception is what's there and from at outsider's viewpoint, that can make it a bit scary for the future

Back to the original question, what is the history of the jeep ? Is it a Willys Overland ? There is a lot of history with the jeeps which were the original off road vehicles. I always liked the open looks of the older jeeps. I believe some of them started out using 9N tractor engines in them.
