Well, now doesn't that depend on whether it's the weekend or not. Here's home for a Saturday/ Sunday........Georgia Pass.........but alas, I get away from all of that during the week in Longmont.I see you have a classic CO tag..Where in CO are you?
Damn! Should have used the terms "upper case" and "lower case", I guesscdmbrennan said:Let's not forget that the original Series One was based on the Willys GP (i.e. Jeep)- even had the same wheelbase. Land Rover was designed to be a British GP, general purpose vehicle, aka jeep.
I think it's all in the capitalizing. jeep is a word to describe any 4wd vehicle; Jeep is a trademarked brand.
