Today, the Jeep® brand is officially celebrating its 80th anniversary. It was on this day in 1941, that the U.S. government issued a contract to produce the legendary Jeep. Originally called the Willys Quad, the first version was considered a “light reconnaissance vehicle” to replace the Army's motorcycle and modified Ford Model-T vehicles. After modifications and improvements, the Quad would become the MA and then the MB. However, the Army would call it the Jeep.

I find it so interesting how different the size of the vehicles are.
