Fancy an ex-army unimog anyone?

Or a F/A-18 Hornet, C-130 Hercules, Blackhawk, or for the cashed-up collector, what about HMS Manoora?!

That'd be everyday. Nobody dare cut you off when driving a 'mog, not even a little baby sized Landcruiser.

Yep, the world would be a happier place with a RHD Mog. Come on lotto numbers :dance:

Thoughts on the price? $40-50 grand?

I drive a bit far to put up with a Mog for the daily commute. The Hornet would make more sense for me although finding a landing site in Parramatta could be a challenge.

It would be good to get one up on the landcruiser and dual cab drivers who think they own the road, although I hope this doesn't mean that in a few years time we will be seeing unimogs with 30" spinner rims, black paint jobs and fully sik stereos cruising around the streets of Sydney... :laughing5:

I always thought a 'mog would come in handy for getting stuff (other Mercs of a more civilian nature) out of the mud hehehe

They are hanging onto the good ones for quite a bit longer yet. These have used up all their lives.

The other day I pulled up along side of an army Unimog at the start of the Freeway Traffic lights. Not sure if the army was in a hurry or his army boot got stuck on the gas pedal, but the Unimog smoked our C200. I will pick my battles better next time. :blackeye:

Both the Mogs and Macks are filthy mongrels. The drivers have learnt how to disengage the puff limiters. They are of the misguided opinion that excess fuel means more power.
