    Will those cup holders be heated & cooled to keep your beverage of choice at the right temp along with being spill proof for when you hit the pile that doesnt move?
    Actually no I have not but I think it would be worth a look.

    20' long? I'll bet that would play heck getting around that cul-de-sac in the residential driveways. On the other hand...Huge!! Powerful!! Expensive!!! All the ingrediants for a wife's nightmare and a man's premium playtoy.

    All I know is I hope they designed this one to at least be able to accomodate a person over 4'8" tall. For some reason, the old ones were designed for midgets. Must be a lot of short germans out there.

    That would make a real beast of a tow truck too. Kinda makes a Humvee look wimpy! Be fun to show up at church in one of them.

    Those of you who are as old as I am (50) will probably remember that the Unimog has been sold here in the US on a sporadic basis for about the last 20 years or so. They were sold at Case construction equipment dealers and were painted "Case" yellow with "Case" decals. I just saw one here at a repair shop last month.
  9. Tim, im looking at your first picture, this is not a unimog, look for the mercedes logo in the front grill. but it look great too.
