Haha, I saw that on Jalopnik. That is so cool that BMW actually took the time to indulge a little kid's dream.

^^YES! Recently I was outside at work and I heard this loud, mechanical shrieking from the next street over. I looked up just in time to see a Unimog going (what sounded like) wide open. It looked like about 30mph.

Yea I'm pretty sure even modern unimogs have a max speed of like 60mph, and I bet that'd be scary as hell.

There's a couple Mogs parked on the other side of town. I sometimes wonder if they get driven. Maybe to here: http://www.northwestmogfest.com/

I think this is a 4wd Vanagon at the last edition:

There was a British car shop in Denver I used to go to with my dad when I was younger. One of the mechanics had several Bo Cars that he was restoring. That's a beautiful car. I thought I'd post it to try and derail the Unimog and 1980's Benz's that seem to have overtaken this thread.

Another Pullman. The front ends of the 60's benz's make me moist. I'll try and come up with something other than a benz next time.

Looks similar to the Ginetta G20 to me. Would be such a fun little track day car.

I've never heard of Bocars previously. They are pretty.

I love this car. Proper American grand touring car and what the Viper should have always been. Mine will be black, GTS, track pack, dark gray stripes.
