Feb 7, 2018 – New link about the History of the Jeep added in Links page from a suggestion of James who is in Ms. Tiffany Chambers class. Tiffany is a volunteer in an after school program with a fun scale model building program for 8-10 year old children. They have been building models of the Jeep that have been donated from the community and have been having a lot of fun learning about all types of them! While looking up information online about Jeeps, they came across our Open Top Tours page. Thanks to all of you for checking us out and we are sending out a big Jeep Wave 👋
