Quick name a Jeep you have seen in a film.... Jurassic park, right?
Last month we were invited to attend an opening for the Skull Island reign of Kong ride at Islands of Adventure. A great ride and one of the best ones there. The event was hosted at the Jurassic Park facility with desserts and drinks. After a few trips to the dessert bar, we headed out of the building and sitting off to the left was a Jurassic Park Wrangler #23. (A quick note that JP# 23 in Islands of Adventure is actually JP 12 from the movie, but after years of wear and tear and being fixed up several times it became JP 23.) The park was closed for the night and that gave us a rare opportunity to take some photos without people clamoring about. I am still undecided as to what paint theme I will be doing on the 1995 Wrangler but Jurassic park is top on the list. I have done some pre visuals on what it would look like with the Explorer theme. The last CJ7 I had had this the green with yellow and red bands. It was called Jurassic Parts. The logo on the hood was a shadow of a jeep going up a hill that resembled the T-Rex logo from the movie. SO... here are some photos from the park, enjoy. http://www.jurassicjeep.com/ has good info if you are interested in doing a build to match the movie.
It's not that I have ADD but that... Oh look a Jeep! Jeeps, Jeeps, and more Jeeps. If you are like me they tend to stand out in movies, I even saw one in the new Ghostbusters movie. Here is a few of the literally 1000s of Jeeps that have appeared in movies, film, and TV. Can you name them all?
