WOW! :o  Never seen one before -- that is soooo cool, and really cute too.  Looks like it would be fun to drive.  Lots of options -- love that grill on the front, the luggage, rack and step.  Looks like the paint job is in good shape too.  Looks like a winner to me.  (good photo too)

Congrats! I like it. It is nice when you are able to drive yourself to the center I did it for many years. It sucks when you have to wait for a ride.

Nice car Epoman! Over Here in England 4x4 have a bit of a bad name. But most of my mates have them.  It's me who has had a change this time, Astra Easytronic Design 55. mines 6 month old. not happy with it >:(  300mls gear linkage went. It's a petrol not a diesel and only getting 35mls to the gallon.At gas at 90 pence a litre. which works out about 90p x 4.52 = £3.82 a gallon or $6.69 a gallon.  Thats why I have change to a smaller car. Already got the thing stuck in the snow! Twice ::) At  least you will not have that problem with a Jeep :)

Not only that, but I could never have a problem with snow!  Last time it snowed in this latitude was during the Ice Age!
I need to tell you guys about this.   I live in the British Virgin Islands, an interesting place.  This place is a mixture of British and American culture (with a big Caribbean input, of course).  We drive on the British side of the road, but the cars have the steering wheel on the American side.
I am from another island which is more British, so I was very pleased that this vehicle has the steering-wheel on the British side.  My students are appalled at the sight of me on the right side (which is the right side)!

- Epoman

I'm sure you probably already know this Epoman, but I'll say it anyway.  There are adapter pieces made for cars and other vehicles so that a person without use of their legs can drive.  It costs a bit to get them and have them installed, but it greatly increases the freedom you have.  My little brother has a set on his car, the only problem he has is getting his chair in and out.  He has to get someone to do it for him.  A guy I went to High School with that was in a chair had a convertable, so he would just let the top down and heave his chair into the back seat.  I believe there are other options that are much more intense and technical than these to.

 ??? Who says I don't drive? I drive all the time. My hips are broke but I can still move and have a lot of strength I just can't walk. In fact the last time we drove to San Francisco from Los Angeles I did all of the driving, on the way back I drove 7 hours back non-stop it was great. I guess you thought that because I said "it sucks to wait for a ride," well we only have 1 car and my wife drives it to work.  :)

My mistake, I guess I read more into "it sucks to wait for a ride" and your hips being broke than there was.  Well then that was embarrassing, at least anyone out there who may have not known about other options now does.
