    Here's my buddy's Humvee. He has tried to get me to buy it a couple times.

    Nothing like a small, nondescript vehicle to fly under the radar. I think a Humvee of military truck just screams "I got good stuff somewhere".

    Cool vehicle but if I get one I want it up armoured. We used to have an old Willies Jeep with rag doors. I froze my tush off.

    Well, to be fair, this is my work truck which sits out in front of my house. It probably screams too.

    Right now I'd think that screams, "Bring evil around here and all hell will descend upon thee." A Humvee sends a different message.

    We got our Jane because she can make one trip with our 3 tons of pellets we use every winter. MUCH better than 3 trips back and forth in our regular truck. And she enjoys being in the local Veteran's Day parade ;)

    That might be the one I plan to steal from the department if we enter a world WROL. :)

    you'd be surprised how much I can get in the back of a small 1200cc vehicle, and it'll go down small narrow lanes passing oncoming vehicles without almost having to stop, very handy in a SHTF scenario.
