One hell of a woman, she belongs in the heroes hall of fame. And she also bought up seven children, i hope she got the recognition she deserved.

This has been and is one of my most favoristic threads on the "G". The whole chorus now: "There ain't nothin' like a Dame....Nothin' in the world...."
I now have, conclusive, definitive and irrefutable evidence that Dames are uncontrollably attracted to Jeeps, and by extension, their owners. Thanks to all who have contributed to my educated, reasoned and common sense conclusion in your photo postings supporting my position on this matter.
Signed, Never Lonely in my G503,
