Jeep Enthusiast: Bennie David Jr. And His 1992 Wrangler With Over 300K Miles Of Travel. Same Motor, Same Transmission, Same Seats, and Same Paint Job For The Whole Ride.

On July 1st twenty years ago, Bennie David Jr. walked into the local Heritage Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep dealer on Reisterstown Road to purchase a Jeep.  The radiant fire red Wrangler with bucket seats and a cloth top was exactly what he was looking for.  The year was 1992, and he couldn’t wait to get his custom stripes painted and ride her down the streets of town. With MPG being less of a concern in the 90’s, a 15 city/16 hwy rating sounded good to Bennie.  That would be fine with most drivers today as well if it only cost them $18 to fill their gas tanks – just like it did for Bennie in 1992 at the local Crown station, $18.03 for 13.7 gallons of gas! He still has all his receipts.

Bennie was sure to mention the “outstanding service” from his salesman, Vance E. Harvey, and the “long hours he spent with me and the large amount of money that he helped me to save” were his motivation in contacting the dealership and Mr. Harvey after all those years.

Since that July day in 1992, Bennie has taken his Wrangler all over as a Sanitation Expert, to places like Pennsylvania, Japan, California, Hawaii, and currently resides in Nevada after racking up 307,011 miles.  The high praise Bennie and his Wrangler received were well worth the time he spent making sure she was well taken care of.

Today, 20 years later, there are still reliable cars like Bennie’s being sold at Heritage Automotive with salespeople who enjoy what they do and continue to put drivers behind the wheel of cars they can love for years to come.  If those drivers do as good of a job as Bennie did, there is no telling how many years that love can last.

 

Bennie said  “…outstanding service I received from the salesman, Mr. Vance E. Harvey. He was very instrumental in my decision to purchase my 1992 Jeep Wrangler, because of the long hours he spent with me and the large amount of money that he helped me to save…”

Three Consumers Solve Online Clues and Win All-new 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander in Jeep National Tiki Hunt Contest.


In a unique online contest, the Jeep brand buried three “Jeep Tikis” across the U.S. as part of the national “Jeep Tiki Hunt” contest, which began April 1. Within the past week, all three Jeep Tikis were found, bringing the contest to a close with three people winning a limited-edition 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander. Including Virginia Beach resident, Melissa Block.

Each week since the contest began, clues were unveiled to consumers on JeepTikiHunt.com and posted to the Jeep brand’s Facebook site and Twitter handle. Each Jeep Tiki was equipped with a GPS tracking device and contained a unique telephone number affixed directly to it.

The Jeep Wrangler Islander Tiki Hunt was the second phase of a broader consumer contest launched in conjunction with the introduction of the all-new 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander. Previously, Jeep hosted the “Jeep Tweet-to-Win” contest on the brand’s Twitter page, where five lucky winners were awarded with trips to the 2010 New York International Auto Show to compete to win an all-new 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander. The five winners dug in a giant sandbox outside the show, with one finding a Jeep Tiki and winning the first Jeep Wrangler Islander model.

“Since we introduced the all-new 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander, we have had the pleasure of giving away four vehicles to four Jeep fans through our social media contests, ‘Tweet-to-Win’ and ‘Jeep Tiki Hunt,’” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “This unique experience has given us the opportunity to connect and communicate directly with Jeep consumers on several levels, while igniting passion for the Jeep brand, the Jeep Wrangler and the all-new Islander.

“While four lucky consumers have won an all-new Jeep Wrangler Islander, anyone can go to their Jeep dealer to purchase one, while they last,” Manley added.

A limited number of 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander models are still available in Jeep showrooms nationwide, including at Hall Chrysler Jeep Dodge on Virginia Beach Blvd.

Justin Walter Reade-Chitaphana, from Los Angeles, was the first contestant to find a Jeep Tiki, which was hidden in a flower pot on Venice Beach. Melissa Block, from Virginia Beach, Va., was the second winner, uncovering a Jeep Tiki at The Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier in Chicago. The third and final winner was Scott Carman of Golden, Colo., who discovered a Jeep Tiki attached to the wheel of Buffalo Bill’s horse and buggy at the Buffalo Bill Museum & Grave in Golden, Colo.

About the Jeep Wrangler Islander
After more than 20 years, the unique Islander theme returns to the Jeep brand. The limited-edition Jeep Wrangler Islander is available on Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited 4×4 models. Based on the Wrangler Sport model, the Islander’s unique beach theme conveys open-air fun at first and every glance.

Jeep Wrangler Islander is featured in Surf Blue Pearl Coat, and is also available in Stone White Clear Coat, Bright Silver Metallic Clear Coat and Brilliant Black Crystal Clear Coat.

Other exterior features include an Islander “Jeep Tiki” decal on the hood with latitude and longitude coordinates that represent an actual location relating to the “Islander” theme of the vehicle, black side steps and popular Moab 17-inch wheels and 32-inch tires.

Inside, Islander’s seats are Dark Gray with Surf Blue inserts, blue stitching and an embroidered Islander “Jeep Tiki” logo adorning the seat back. Blue stitching also has been added to the leather-wrapped steering wheel, with Mopar rubber floor mats completing the beach theme.

The Jeep Wrangler Islander option package is available in Jeep showrooms at a U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $1,120.
