Saw this Gem yesterday and sent pics to my friend, he replied

"Ahh okay I gotcha damn nice jeeps"

I'll give him a pass as he probably glanced at it, though now I want one xD

Still, ever see a car, send the pic to a friend and they thought it was something else, or does that just happen with me?

To be fair, he's my Consigliere and while not the biggest car guy, does know something

We talk about everything though
Had to look up "Consigliere"... definition I got was "an adviser, especially to a crime boss." ... hmmmmm... :idea:

Exactly, also helps that my one story is set in a 50s/60s world that includes 5 families (only 3 really shown) in Albania (idky I chose it)

That, and I made a guild when I met him and promoted him to that rank ages ago

Tom Hagen, Silvio Dante, those are Consigliere's

While that’s not a Jeep in the strictest sense, everyone in the world will think of it as such and probably call it that other than Jeep people. Plus it’s got a seat cover with the word Jeep on it. You shouldn’t expect anyone who’s not a Jeep person to know different.

True, but the front does say Toyota

My wife calls G-Wagens "Mercedes Jeeps." lol

She knows Jeep and Mercedes are totally different brands, but anything that looks kind of like a Wrangler becomes a jeep.

Exactly what I was talking about. A G-Wagen. Old Toyota FJ. New Toyota FJ. Suzuki Samurai. Land Rover Defender. Many people refer to all of these generically as a Jeep.

True. The general public is not into Jeeps and uses the word the same as Band-Aid and Kleenex. So when they see a boxy 4x4 they lump it into the Jeep category. Sidekicks, Isuzu, Mitsubishi, and I've even heard people call older Bronco's with no roof a Jeep.
