The first generation Jeepsters were the American version of the MG's or Austin-Healys. There was nothing that looked remotely like them and they were unique.

I've always considered the Jeepster to fit in a niche kind of like a Corvette; sharp looking, fun to drive and not a lot of practicality.

Now, you just need some flashy white sidewalls on that lil' critter!

Keep us posted!
