I'm a Suburban owner and I have "time" with a gatling gun in the late 60's.My suburban is not as well equipped but it is equipped enough to provide me protection.

Do we really need this stuff????

What kind of spending bill was this pork barrelled onto????

Give the MARINES a NEW whirley bird to fly the new guy around in.

(for us vets that would by FNG)

For consumer use, at least on a "beastly" burb, I think the pump-action shotguns are definitely over the top unless they could be rigged to shower down paper messages of "you jerk". However the tear gas cannons are exactly what I have been needing for those pesky tailgaters just before their obnoxious pass and cut-off.

"At Last", was that dance romantic or what, ahhh?

well...more than "vintage" weight, for sure. But probably slightly less than a new one from the factory.

Check it out.
Oops, my bad. Topkick is the one they build the large GM Class C motor homes on.

I bet this thing doesn't have much towing capacity after all that armor plating and 5" thick glass was added on.

I don't know the financial on this one, but back in the day the CIA leased President Nixon's Lincoln from Ford Motors for $1/year. That's why it is in the Ford museum and not one of the nation's museums.

No, I think that Nixon's limo is at the Nixon library in Yorba Linda, Ca. All other Lincoln limos up to Kennedy's is at the Henry Ford Museum.

Well, I guess that's a double oops.

Actually, I thought Kennedy limo was renovated and used for Nixon. Maybe not. I know there is a Kennedy buff down in Florida that has recreated the Kennedy limo in every detail...so much so that it was "borrowed" to be used in the JFK movie a few years ago.

As I recall, the Kennedy limo was used for several years after the assassination. It obtained a hard top, updated sheet metal and other protection.

It's cold but we keep dreaming of streaming!!!

Michelle (thecatsandi) and I took a trip to see the Ford museum and saw many of the presidents' limos. That was impressive but I have to confess my favorite wheeled vehicles were the Oscar Mayer Weiner Mobile and Tom Thumb's carriage. That might be because I share an affinity with the other undertall people of the world.

Hey Carol, if you want to see the most beautiful American cars ever made, go to the Auburn|Deusenberg|Cord Mueseum in Auburn, IN. Those duesies were magnificent, but the Cord Convertible Coupe is (IMHO) the absolutely most beautiful car ever built.



Those early chain drive Mack trucks were a real hoot too.

Those are some gorgeous cars. Don't see lines like that anymore that's for sure.
