Thanks! Hoot is named after his original owner, Hootie. Hootie sold fruit, etc and used the Jeep to haul his goods. Grandpa bought the jeep from Hootie in the early 70s and Hoot has been babied since. Nowadays Hoot enjoys casual cruises around town and getting lots of attention
My JKU's nickname is Dougie, after my grandpa Doug that bought Hoot.
