2012 Jeep Wrangler
Wrapping things up, my final vehicular choice is something else off the beaten path, off road entirely, in fact. Jeep’s iconic Wrangler is the perfect trucklette for slogging through dirt and mud should the desire to get soiled ever tickle my fancy.
Practically an American institution, the Wrangler’s roots reach back many decades to the original Willys Jeep. Its forebear’s legacy was forged on the beaches of Normandy, where it hammered its way across the French countryside liberating its populace from Nazi oppression. It served with valor on countless other battlefields as well.
That red-white-and-blue heritage is alive and well in today’s rough-and-ready Wrangler, an American vehicle proudly assembled in Toledo, Ohio. It’s the automotive equivalent of the Fourth of July, Black Friday and a Norman Rockwell painting all rolled into one. Patriotism expressed with four-wheel drive and knobby tires. A fine choice for a Dream Garage if I do say so myself.
