postscript: the vw type 166 schwimmwagen had 4wd varients, but I don't think it predates the GP. The Kubelwagen, type 62, predates the GP but was RWD.

No, I can safely say I've never seen any Swedish military vehicles from Volvo, but that's pretty rad.

Its no UNIMOG, though. Even in the company of the Kubelwagen, the MOG is the coolest thing to ever roll the Earth.

Jake, love my Forester. Who cares if it seems to be the car of choice among lesbians. Its also very popular among engineers, so at least I fit one stereotype.

Tim, I had a friend in high school that rebuilt a Scout out of I think it was 3 junker scouts. It was a beaut. Baby blue with a big V-8, all custom gauges, and a system. It was one bad @$$ ride. Laid some serious tire too. Wonder what happened to it...

Was kind of funny that they always had a "parts car" in the yard, though.

Dear gfen,

A couple of years ago on a surf fishing website I visit a guy from Australia posted some videos of a customized ralleye 4WD that he built to tour Africa.

It was based on some commercial truck chassis but basically it was a 30 foot long 4WD Winnebago motorhome that could ford 3 feet of water and drive through powdery sand and waist deep mud. That thing was seriously bad.

That Sugga with the trailer is available for $65000 CDN if you are interested? Me, I sort of need A/C and cruise control.

Regards,

Tim Murphy

If it were old exchange rates, I had no babbies and I could somehow convince my wife it was an awesome investment, maybe.

There's a store down here that's got an old MOG in front of it for years, I've never seen it move but I'm going to assume these things were built to last and it would probably start up with a battery and some fresh oil.

I wonder what they'd sell it for. I don't know how fast 100hp in a 5 ton truck can move you, though.

edit: 80HP, with a 43' turning radius. top speed "about 55mph." hah. still want.

I have been driving Deuce and a halfs and a five ton Keiser Jeeps for the last year at work. They beat your ass.....I wouldn't want to have to fish once I got there.

But you should have no problem getting to the creek, across it and even up the other bank no matter how steep.
