    Do you still really want that HUM-V or do you want something more serious?

    That is really frigging cool. One of the 6x6's would look pretty bad *** compared to all of the Prius's in the parking lot at work.

    In reality though, I'm just hoping the check engine light on my '97 Sentra goes out before I need an inspection in August. The darn state of CA messes with us here in NY, because we follow their emissions standards. To get the Sentra to qualify, they have a special forward catalytic converter (right off the engine in addition to the one underneath the car) on the car which is super expensive. If it fails, I'm hoping I can get one from an auto wrecker for less.

        Made by the Czech Republic

        Does the US have an equivalent?

              There for a minute I thought Lee Majors was gonna run out of my screen!



              It might be a great vehicle...

              but will it climb trees to rescue snugs my cat?


              No buying decision is complete unless it meets this criteria.

                jsut about any military spec 6x6 or 8x8 truck would do the same thing, the 4x4 and 6x6 would not do the trench test as well, but my old 1953 6x6 besides being totally under powered, will do most of that, it tires are not quite as tall so it ground clearance is not as good, but it will do most all of that test track, (note that or those trucks were empty).

                          Try going to www.youtube.com and searching under Extreme Trucks and you'll get all kinds of videos to view. They have some totally wild ones of supper tractor and truck pulling that are almost mind blowing.

                          Here is one wild old Kenworth modified to check out.

                          (Screaming Detroit Diesel 12V71 2-stroke cycle engine revved up fast)
                          http://youtube.com/watch?v=T1XbZYJwsaA
                          (Remember this is a 2 stroke cycle engine and it has 12 cylinders. It sounds like it's running much faster than it really is, but being modified it is running much faster than stock)

                            The big long and heavy load. The last 20 seconds are the good stuff.
