The very first Jeep fact on here is incorrect. The Jeep was designed for specific duties, was never referred to as "General Purpose". That the name may have been derived from Ford's nomenclature referring to the vehicle as GP (G for government-use, and P to designate its 80-inch-wheelbase)
Many claim that the likelier origin refers to the character Eugene the Jeep in the Thimble Theater (Popeye) comic strip. Eugene the Jeep was dog-like and could walk through walls and ceilings, climb trees, fly, and just about go anywhere it wanted; it is thought that soldiers at the time were so impressed with the new vehicle's versatility that they informally named it after the character. The character "Eugene the Jeep" was created in 1936.

Usually not, the cats have trouble signing the documents with their tiny little paws and since both parties have to sign even when a great dane is involved, they still need the clerk to look away for a minute so he can forge that cat's name.

In Michigan, it is illegal to chain an alligator to a fire hydrant.
It is against the law to whale hunt in Oklahoma.
In Fairbanks, Alaska it is illegal for a moose to walk on the side walk. This dates back to the early days if the town when the owner of the bar had a pet moose that he used to get drunk. The moose would then stumble around the town drunk. The only way the law makers could prevent this from happining was to create the law so the moose could not cross the sidewalk and get into the bar.

Bantam designed the first Jeep...Ford and Willys were awarded the contract for production...Bantam was given a contract to build the little trailers that were sometimes towed behind them. And (sorry, don't get mad) but Jeep doesn't come from GP (General Purpose) it comes from the designation codes Ford had to describe the vehicle (G for government-use, and P to designate it as an 80-inch-wheelbase, 1/4 ton 4X4 truck).
The Ford GPW and Willys MB, while both produced at the same time, were completely different vehicles. However, most parts were interchangeable. Ford had a problem with this and had EVERY part, right down to the bolts marked with an "F" script to identify it as a Ford part and to help keep non-Ford warranty parts from being utilized.
