It's a Jeep, not a "car".

And, get off my lawn! :)

There's just something about the use of "car" in reference to a Jeep that is wrong.

If I can convert one person to use "Jeep" instead of "car", then my work is done. :)

"Car" is the abbreviated form of "carrier".

Guess what the JEEP vehicle was designed SOLELY to do? It was built to be a troop carrier during the war, and transport military personel from point A to point B.

The Jeep, therefore, is 100% car.

(But I do totally understand what you're trying to say. My wife has always called my pickup trucks "cars" and it drives me insane.)

When people call their Jeep a car, I assume this is what they drive:

And in the Sahara trim, no less. Call me crazy but it doesn't look half bad. Would look even better as a station wagon.

A Jeep may be a car but if you call your Jeep a car then you don't appreciate how special it really is, especially when you mod it to your taste. I'm proud to call mine "my Jeep"!
