    tama ba?
    well, for the sake of argument, i guess you could call the jeepney an AUV. but for easier identification, it's a jeepney. :wink:

    the AUVs started with the passenger type fieras, tamaraws and L300s. same function as jeepeneys, they load the same way as jeepneys, and in some provinces, it's quite hard to tell them apart, what with the local iron works cutting apart original Toyota, Isuzu, Mitsu, etc. bits and pieces and putting them together in the jeepney mold.

    then, they evolved into wagon type vehicles, such as the FX which is now the Revo, and the highlander which is now the Crosswind, and the adventure, which is still the adventure. :mrgreen:

    Oh, addendum lang..... Jeepneys (Jitneys) will always be jeepneys. Backyard Engineering lang po sila (no offense to Jeepney peeps). AUVs were (are) developed by Big corporations like Toyota and Ford. Hehehe..... If you can relate with a ford fiera.... matanda ka na! (like me hehehe :mrgreen: )
