I cannot justify spending €1200 on a bicycle, and after some time in the shop, my hardware store bike does just fine... but but... I want one. :cry:

Of course, a Buffalo could be fun...

Then again, so could this, if water was involved:

(I'm pretty far from the coast, so I doubt that'd ever be an issue, but if it were, something like this might be okay...)

If a buffalo is what you want, make ur way to Letterkenny, Pa. It's a military base with low security. Lol once the Zombie apocalypse happens, it will be abandoned. There are hundreds of these vehicles and more all u need is a set of bolt cutters. They lock the doors with padlocks and u don't need a key. They have a knob for the ignition. Lol this is ONLY in the event of the zombies lol. Plus they have a fuel depot on base so u can top off before heading out for zombie squishing fun lol
You'll only survive as long as you prepare to survive, both physically, and mentally.

Umm, not sure you should have said that. A) discussion of illegal activity PAW or not isn't allowed and B) putting something that says getting into a US military base is easy could really make a target out of it and it brings danger to the people who are tasked with defending our country.

Admins, please feel free to delete this post with the other if you so choose to take that course of action.

Love that old Wagon.

That concept almost made me puke. It's like they combined a Doge Ram, a Plymoth Prowler, and a PT Cruiser into one... :gonk:

I am about to pay off my GMC Sierra 4x4 gasser and I really want a Duramax. Looking for a crew cab 4x4 dually. I'm a contractor and carry lots of heavy materials and the half ton ain't cutting it anymore.

Awesome thread...

While I'd love one of those bobbed dueces, at the moment I have an '88 Trooper II that's gonna get the ZS upgrades.

Kinda like this one, only more silver.
Image
I'll try to get pictures of mine up here soon. It's the big four cylinder/5 sp, so it will get low 20's on the highway at 70, and better at 55 or so.

It already has a tow bar, serioiusly reinforced hitch, some lights and a new stereo (yeah babee) which gives me a USB charger. I'd really like to add a Safari style roof rack, some gas can storage and some type of locking storage in the back that doesn't completely kill the storage.

LIke the price of the Proline Safari rack, trying to decide if buying the Yakima to insure that accessories fit is worth the extra $100.

Image

I'm going to pull the stock roof bars soon, and put a coat of white bedliner down as the paint is getting a little sketchy before the safari rack goes on.

Dream would be a snorkel kit, but I can't find one this side of the pond. Well heck, I just did! Pricey though, but it's almost mall ninja in the pose value!

Image

January stinks, all the insurance and property tax is due...no disposable income to match the plans.

The final over the top mod (that the wife gave me the "wife look" when I told her about it) is to weld some rebar or wire over the windows. You know, so the zombies can't get in after they break the glass. Done right I think it would be cool, done wrong I'm afraid Jeff Foxworthy would love it

Image

Not sure what local LEO would think either...

I just posted this in the p0rn thread.

My BOV is my FJ Cruiser...


It's a 6 speed manual with locking differential, 3" coilover lift and lots of other goodies...even a rear air mattress that sleeps my 6'3" self relatively comfortably! Soon it'll have a big LED light bar and some Rigid Dually's for the rear.

Move or be moved :mrgreen:

...and my backup vehicle. Just in case.
'89 Toyta Hilux on 37" tires with a locked rear axle. 5.29 gears waiting to go in when I quit spending money on the FJ...lol

It is not 'lusting' if you have it.

Also I find the points system for hitting pedestrians, old ladies and handicapped rather juvenile.
