Ok I am a long time JEEP (CJ, YJ, TJ) fan and have owned 3 of these bad boys to date, One of the reasons that I love them is that when I was growing up in merry old England in the 80's the Jeep seem to feature in an awful lot of Movies and as such became a bit of cult classic in its own right so what I would like to know is how many 80's movies did it feature that you can think of [Smile]

Platoon
Biloxi Blues
Short Circuit
Commando
Private Benjamin
Wargames
Romancing The Stone

Those are immediate thoughts - basically there was a fad for movies with a military theme or the influence of a military organization. And as most of these were US Military, they used Jeeps.

I'm tempted to say that the military theme was more of a cult than the actual vehicles, these kinda came as part of the package. Had those movies been made in the UK, you'd own a series of Land Rovers, Toyota Landcruisers, or similar by now, I'd guess.....

Don't forget The Goonies "Trusted your old mother boys!!!!"

I used to own one of them. Drunk petrol like it was going out of fashion.

Matt and Luke Goss - 'Bros'. Yep, pronounced 'Bross'.

And this.

Blonde from a bottle, and posing was what they did best. Good to see there's still a little hatred out there for the twins!

Remember the t-shirts "Matt and Luke make me puke"?

I can no longer dislike them the way I did in the 80's. They were the last big British pop group of the glorious 80's before everything became all dancey, 'street' and 90's.

Probably the last years they could get away with that. By the 90's it was a big no-no.
