Diego Rosenberg
Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.


  1. Ford really missed the boat, the iconic jeep front grill/ end was Fords design. Due to the fact it was a war of survival and suppliers weren’t concerned with design patents Kaiser Steel who also built a ton of jeeps was able to capitalize on Fords design and make it their marquee, which is still with them today.

  2. How could a car guy not know that the iconic Land Rover WAS the first semi-replication of the WWll Jeep in the late 1940’s? The Series l was a Rover 4- banger with Jeep tranny and suspension wrapped in birma bright aluminum-magnesium left over bomber panels in a Solihull warehouse. When the Jeeps that the landed gentry took home to their estates wore out, they needed to replace them with a workhorse machine. The Queen drove hers until the day she died. The LR is still thriving today.

  3. Likewise with the Toyota fj. My understanding of this is the us military was want to off shore jeep production to Japan to reduce costs of getting vehicles to Korea for that effort and handed the specs to toyota. I am betting an aside was the benefit to their economy.

    The last one of course is the amg hummer. Amg=American motors general, their military division.
