Yeah, I've always liked jeeps, my life's aim is to own the same make and model of jeep that Frank had. Probably not going to happen though, lol!

While we are on the subject, does anyone know why this type of jeep was chosen for Millennium? Obviously it has pratical applications, i.e. its a family car. However, is their any symbolism involved such as the colour red maybe represents blood or something. Or maybe some one at 1013 saw this car said, "Hey, that car will do." Lol!

Perhaps Lance had his choice of several and picked that one. The large car dealers are

more than happy to donate cars to be used either by the stars or in the shows in

BC. [ Richard Dean Anderson got a Lincoln Towncar ] as to the color.. lets face it

the #1 and #2 color choice by men are red and black and the bad guys had black...lol

I had another thred up for a while, and was looking closely at pics on eBay.

It appears to be a Jeep Cherokee Sport...1995.

Terry and I talked about me getting one, but I'm a bit nervous about all the horror stories I've heard about how easily they roll over.

I'm sure if your a good driver you'll be ok Raven Wolf. You know how things sometimes get sensationalised on the news and on the internet.

Its all about knowing your vehicle and not exceeding its ability or yours. I drove a

school bus for several years and its very top heavy and UNmanuveralble. The big

thing I have found with mine [and others I have driven] is it oversteers so every thing you do must be done slowly and with control so not to exceed the laws of physics. but overall.. its the most fun and functional vehicle I have ever

owned. :clapping:

Thank you. Both of you. The only car I've ever driven that I felt COMFORTABLE in was an Infiniti Q45, and that wasn't even mine. The one I wrecked was a Ford Escort....and that thing was a P.O.S. The one I have now...(that I hardly drive, since my jerk ex-boyfriend cracked the windsheild in 1997.) is a VW Golf, and I've always felt like a bird, perching on a wire in the driver's seat. VERY insecure. Maybe I'll test drive a Jeep sometime, just to see how it feels. Still, if I had the money...even a little...I'd get an Infiniti. :smokin:

Cherokees don't roll, where'd you hear that? it's a very safe vehicle. the only problem i have with them is that they don't age well. the older 90's models have an engine problem that causes the piston chambers to wear into and oval shape and burn craploads of oil, lose power and generally suck, but all models are unibody contruction and if used a LOT off-road, become weakened by constant flexing of the subframe and body. here's a couple pics make you feel a little safer:

well, that last one should say it all. i think that's enough for now.
