Because it isn't a motorcycle?

Buy it, it looks like it would be a lot of fun, except when you fuel it up!

Perfect for a camping trip to Tierra del Fuego. The frame is strong enough to install a bike lift. In Germany farmers have been known to plough fields with Unimogs. They are no longer sold in the USA, but here is some interesting info: http://www.unimog.net/

He's been trying to sell that thing for more than a year. It is very cool but he's pretty high on the price...

Yeah, the price is way too high. Plus its an older one at that.

I would like one for going to work. I could drive over cars. Nawwww, I am holding out for a tank. The movie TANK just inspired me to want to do that someday. I would take it to Chicago and drive it around there just becasue they actually have a law on record of no tanks allowed ever since the movie blues brothers. I would be bound to piss someone off.

Why do you always have to be the voice of reason.


Cooler heads prevailed. See you tomorrow.
