Wish List

Whoa, baby! The new Jeep truck concept, Gladiator, stopped me in my tracks with desire. I have eyes for no other than my Edy, but now I'm thinking we need to be a two Jeep household. Once released, I'm certain it's going to be wildly popular.

Plastic Hood Straps

It now seems to me that hood latches (straps) should be made out of metal instead of plastic. Especially 100 miles from home driving against a strong Kansas cross-wind. An approaching semitrailer caused a wind current that broke one of the latches and left my hood flapping in the wind on the driver's side. I turned around and headed back 20 miles to the last city I had passed and pulled into a Chrysler dealership, Midway Motors in McPherson. They got me right in and back on my way in a little over an hour. Although I will now worry about the durability of plastic straps, I was very pleased with my Chrysler experience in a different city.
