Working last week here...though the picture is a fail in every way, patch under exposed and sign too far away.  Cut me some slack, I was driving onto post in the frenzy that is the morning arrival at a base. Smiley


Also spotted this in Pensacola.

There's an east wind coming, such a wind as never blew on England yet. It will be cold and bitter and a good many of us may wither before its blast. But it's God's own wind none the less, and a cleaner, better, stronger land will lie in the sunshine when the storm has cleared.

7000 is not that bad of a price because of the accessorizes and parts.
Not sure if its a German one or a Canadian one however, most likely Canadian though.

The grill guard is bombardier but the antenna mount is German. It has KFOR in ghost letters under the door sill, which is peculiar, I didn't think any KFOR iltis made it back over here. The green/black camo points Canadian too.

Interesting Iltis. The paint is either crazy faded if it's still original, or it's the wrong colour if it's actually a Canadian model. The seats look the wrong colour as well (they appear faded black or grey whereas the Canadian ones were always either O.D. or sometimes (replacement seats I think) were more of a seafoam green.

Pretty sure the trailer isn't Canadian though, as the Canadian ones were slathered in the same kind of reflectors as you see on the front of the Iltis it's self, but they were red.

$7000 U.S. for an Iltis seems on-par with what they go for up here, which usually ranges from $5000-10,000 Cdn.

The Iltis was crazy hella fun to drive, and narrow enough it could climb straight up near any goat path - but it was a maintenance nightmare. Next to a Lada, it's probably about as close as you can come to a disposeable vehicle. Wink

Cheers!!

It was a franken-vehicle, both engines are located in the crappy trailer.  It was not worth 7,000 unless rust has become a commodity.

Headed up to MA for Liberty Canyon last weekend, where we moved all our camp sustainment gear to the top of the farthest ridge on foot and it rained on us every night.  Sadly, the rain never did really cool things off just made them wet.  We left all our weapons crates props and explosives props along with some water in an FSS one ridge line closer to the US Firebase.  The chunk of tent was the worst piece to move...and bonus, the damn thing leaked from every seam!  Yep, well worth lugging it all over creation, not. Built a raised bed to get out of the muck, luxury!
