For a few years, Jp magazine ran a Q&A column in each issue called Ask Bree Three. For the benefit of our new readers, the column featured a different photo of a scantily clad model that just happened to be into several types of motorsports, along with three question-and-answer submissions from Jp readers.
Long story short, Ask Bree Three was met with either rank disgust or vibrant enthusiasm. However, the underlying complaint that we heard from camps on both sides of the Bree fence was: "Why don't you guys run photos of real Jeep chicks instead of some model who doesn't even pose in front of a Jeep?"
So for those of you wishing for real Jeep chicks, here you go. And remember, submissions for any of our special Sideways editions or regular old off-road gaffe photos can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or snail mailed to Jp Magazine, Sideways, 831 S. Douglas St., El Segundo, CA 90245.

Then and Now
I came across these old photos taken circa 1963 on the Rubicon Trail. This one is of my father- and mother-in-law with the whole family in their Jeep. The newest photo is of my wife Margie today; she's still off-roading! In 1963, they got four kids, three adults and full camping gear across the trail in the two Jeeps.
I'm guessing CJ-2As. Right now, her parents' Jeep is resting comfortably in one of the barns on their ranch, just waiting to be resorted to prime condition.

Save a Horse, Ride a Jeep
I personally was offended that the girls featured in the Jeep Chix Edition page were not "real" Jeep Chix. It appears that they were posing with Jeeps that were not their own. As a "real" Jeep chick, I feel that if Bree was taken away, she should have been replaced by chicks who own and drive Jeeps, not just pose with them.
