Call me crazy, but I sincerely believe in buying American products whenever I can.  Yes, even autos.  It’s important to support the American economy and our heritage brands.  However, I am not going to spend my hard-earned money on inferior goods or services just because it’s American.  Quality is paramount.  So it should come as no surprise that I drive a Jeep.  It’s a cool thing to drive down the road in your Wrangler- all the waves, nods, and peace-signs from other Wrangler and CJ drivers.  It’s a tight-knit community of loyalists, and I love it.  I also have a theory that a lot of Jeep owners may just be a little more patriotic than most folks, and that the contribution made to this country, particularly in war time is especially meaningful to them.  Of course a good number of them are probably just off-road fanatics, but I’m sure a lot of them must share my nationalistic sentiments.
