Yes. Good car, just not for me. Wanted to get back into a 4X4, researched small crossovers, found the attributes I wanted in the Patriot.

Perhaps. But I'm always more content in a 4X4 than any of my cars. Kumbaya.

WHOA... just thinking this morning. My new Jeep ® has one of the most diverse backgrounds of any vehicle on the road. It's got a little bit of all of these flavors wrapped up in a sweet little American dish:

Willys

Kaiser

AMC

Renault

Chrysler

Mitsubishi

Diamler

Anyone else in its ancestry? Italians just married in, but haven't been around long enough to add their own spices to the plate.

Here are some photos taken today. Sasquatch took the first one. He emailed it to me. He said he likes it:

It's a shame you don't know who to email about that.....

If you're going for every drop of lineage blood, you'd have to include Rambler, Frazer, Hudson, Nash, Knight, Overland, and one of the grandaddies of 4x4s, Jeffery.

Cool on the family tree info. I did forget about the other members of AMC, and other companies who built the original military vehicle that became the Jeep. Thanks for the comments.

I'll check the C&G Garage shortly.
