The Jeep design was so basic that even a child’s crayon picture of a car is more complicated than a Jeep. Maybe that’s why we love them. Our first quarter exhibit for 2015 will be honoring this great American invention. We will be displaying some wonderful examples from the basic World War II and Korean War Jeeps to the more modern and luxurious Wagoneer.

So, what's the origin of the Jeep name? In the military, ʻGPʼ stands for General Purpose (vehicle). When slurred it sounds like ʻjeepʼ. This caught on and the little military vehicle formally became ʻJeep.ʼ Now you know!
