Jeep: 20 Years of World Travel and Still Running Strong
On July 1st twenty years ago, Bennie David Jr. walked into the local Heritage Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep dealer on Reisterstown Road to purchase a Jeep. The radiant fire red Wrangler with bucket seats and a cloth top was exactly what he was looking for. The year was 1992, and he couldn't wait to get his custom stripes painted and ride her down the streets of town. With MPG being less of a concern in the 90's, a 15 city/16 hwy rating sounded good to Bennie. That would be fine with most drivers today as well if it only cost them $18 to fill their gas tanks – just like it did for Bennie in 1992 at the local Crown station, $18.03 for 13.7 gallons of gas! He still has all his receipts.. full story
