Seven Days of Dream Car Garages: Day Six by Craig Cole

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 Jeep-Wrangler-Off-Road.jpghammered 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.

    What?!? No mention of the Dymaxion? Seriously? Bucky must be rolling over in his elegantly designed casket. The only redeeming item on this list is the Citroen DS. Now THAT’S a car!

  • “…you can go read Nancy Drew.”  That, sir, is some fine, funny writing right there.

  • Hope to hear more about that 1936 Ford.  I like the styling, Ford’s transition into Streamline Moderne style.

    Such a wonderful selection! It’s so personal and you had to have thought: “what’s that random communist car I like? oh yeah!”. I wish that you had done a video or narrated this, I Love how you speak in your videos.
