Is this a jeepney?

Umm. . .for the purist. . . Not. It's a departure from the seating style of the passengers seats facing each other, and in crowded quarters, the knees touching, and some say, the origin of the word ":jeepney" — jeep-knee.

This has more of a mini-bus front-facing seating arrangement. But other than that it's all jeepney innards and shell. Mud guards, roof style, borloloys. The front view is unmistakably 'jeepney: center-grille, panel board, fender, accessories and all.

My vote: Yes.
