JEEP...Bantam, Willys & Ford. Then came Kaiser Willys, then AMC & Chrysler.

Jeep wrote the book on 4wd and Humdrum copied a page out of it for the soccer moms of Beverly Hills.

Larry's Comment: Looks like Hummer has been bought by China. Might be the first time China has bought an American product instead of the other way around...ha!

Jeep being controlled by Fiat (Italian) is also a kick in the teeth to most Americans who know and understand the historical importance of the Jeep.

You are correct HiHood (CJ3B guy I'm guessing) about the origin of the Jeep and the copy-cats that followed. BTW are you the same HiHood I see occasionally on a particular Jeepz forum?

I guess you missed the part where AM General was the division of AMC that built Jeeps...they didn't 'copy'...they 'evolved'.
