That Unimog is great! Under different circumstances I'd buy it!

Its will climb straight up a vertical wall of 1.2 metres and a slope of 45 degrees. It’s only done 37500 km from new which was 1965. About 14/16 miles to the galleon and top speed is about 70km/hour. They make good trucks for overland Expeditions. It is up for sale sadly at 3500 euros!

Hahaha, sorry couldn't resist highlighting those bits! I'd love to see this schooner rather than later :lol:

Seriously though that is ubercool and I'd use that as it was intended. Love to see the faces at my local off road place if I turned up in this!
How much is 3500 Euros in proper money please? I can't afford it but I'd like to be able to dream up ways of trying to raise the dosh!
You have, without doubt, the coolest non-BX vehicle on this website. It even trumps my AX van!
