TRR Trivia – March 2018

Last month’s multiple-part question was presented by Greg B.
1. What was the first production year for the Jeepster?
2. What was the last production year for the Jeepster Commando?
3. How many Jeepster Commandos do we have in the club?
4. Who owns each of these?

1. 1948, specifically July 21, 1948
2. 1973
3. Three
4. Darrel/Judy T, Greg B, Allan P

It was decided that this question was worth 6 points, 1 each for the first 3 questions and 1 for each person identified as a Jeepster owner. Several people got some of these correct, so the points battle began in earnest with this one. Congratulations to Gordy H for getting 5 points; the only part he missed was the first question, which he answered 1949 rather than 1948. Gary B, Jim C, Karla H, Paula K, Richard H, James H, Brian G, Debbie T, and Vic W all received 3 points.

This month’s trivia will be brought to you by Gordy H, who holds the lead for 2018 with 5 points.
