It's amazing what a name will do! I remember my Spanish teaching (many moons ago) saying that the Chevy Nova wouldn't sell in Mexico when it first came out the 70's. The problem? No-va in Spanish translates to "no go". Who would want to by a car called the Won't Drive?

However, these Jeeps drive great-but you already knew that

Reminds me of Tonto, the Lone Ranger's friend. In Potawatami it's "wild one", in Spanish it's "idiot".

I hate my Compass.....

......and for good reason.

Sunday, after leaving a local shopping mall, i walked to my Khaki Compass across the parking lot. when i put the key in the door (26D pkg), it wouldn't open. i tried it again with no luck. when i started to walk around it to try the other side, i noticed that in the basket i kept in the back was a white baseball cap. i thought to myself....."when did i put that THERE?". when i got to the back of the Compass, it was then that it hit me. I'M TRYING TO GET INTO SOMEONE ELSES COMPASS!!!

it looked just like mine, well except for the fact it was a LImited, didn't have any Sport Bars on it and had the 18" Chrome wheels. ok, it was KHAKI and that was it. but since i've seen very few Compass' on the road, seeing one the same color just never registered.

i must be getting old.......

yesterday when I went to lunch I spotted a Black compass and a gold or maybe it's khaki colored compass as well - still never seen another Rallye (which is good for me - everyone's always checking me out when I'm rolling around!)

thats the way i felt too. it was kind of neat to have something that not everyone else was driving. but like anything else, the longer it's been out, the more i'm starting to see. since that experience at the mall, i've see TWO other Khaki colored Compass'.

maybe i should have mine painted "Sublime" or "Plum Crazy"??? (for those of you old enough to appreciate )

Hmmm a sublime Rallye - that might be pretty cool with the black wheels and a black spoiler.

we had one on our lot when i bought my Khaki colored Sport 4X4 and if it had been Khaki, i might have gotten it instead.

they are different....

Mine's on order in Jeep Green. Just waiting on shipment.. a week or so to go. the anticipation is absolutely killing me!!! ... enough to notice the comment was referring to the wheels. Meh.. yah only black for the wheels. but no complaints. Save for the anticipation complaint. That stands.
:

And for the record, we've got a white Patriot in the parking lot at work, and my boss drives a shiny-shiny red Wrangler Rubicon (he referred me to the dealer...)
