    Excerpted from writing by J P CAVANAUGH– AUGUST 26, 2014

    In 1910, John North Willys bought a six-years-old bicycle manufacturing plant in Toledo, Ohio, where he consolidated the operations of the Willys-Overland company. This marked the beginning of an automobile manufacturing operation that remains to this day. Willys-Overland made it through the Second World War, eventually being purchased by Kaiser in 1953. Kaiser and Willys passenger cars were produced there into 1955 and forever thereafter, Toledo’s one and only famous automotive product has been the Jeep.

    When it closed in 2006, the Jeep Parkway plant was the oldest operating automobile plant in the United States. Think about it: The same assembly lines built the Willys-Knight, the Americar, the later Kaiser Manhattans and about every Jeep from the beginning up through at least the modern Wrangler. Amongst all of those famous products, the Gladiator stands right with them, a product that the people of Toledo could be proud of.

    Excerpted from writings BY PAUL NIEDERMEYER – APRIL 12, 2018

    The “All New All Jeep” Gladiator arrived in 1962, looking very modern indeed, except for the “classic” grille. How to explain that, as well as the miraculous self-leveling suspension that allows this Gladiator to stand level on that steep hillside? Brooks Stevens, America’s “ego designer” who coined the term “planned obsolescence”, played a major role in the neo-classical revival that was under full swing at the time, or just about to take off. Ironic, that the designer that most played up the benefits of “planned obsolescence” would have his Wagoneer and Gladiator designs become evergreens.

    Agree funny that the guy who coined ''planned obsolescence", one of my least favorite things, helped invent the Gladiator and Vigilante, two of my favorites. That's some very Ironical Plywood...

    Topic one: is particle board plywood?

    Topic two: why did I see a truckload of trucks on a truck carrier with spider badges, and are they rare, and should they have been photographed, and do they compete with JT? They looked like one of the big three...
