Nice Steyr Puch. I've only seen the 6x6's. Thought it was a Volvo C303 at first.

There's actually another for sale near my office. It's the kind with the canvas bed cover though. The one in the photo is much nicer - it's the only one I've ever seen.

I'd definitely go with the ambulance or radio truck so as to get the metal top.

This place is local to me; http://www.expedition-imports.com/ca...category_name/, one of these days.

Lots of hot rods come to the beach for Thanksgiving.



The old fella from PA said it would lift the front end 3 feet in the air.

Sometimes he runs a wheelie bar but not this weekend.



I bet it's a hoot to drive.

This has been my shop truck for the last 8 years...

(1950 Chevy panel truck, w/ Buick 350/350, IFS, PS, PB, tilt, cruise)

but then I got this...

(Chev 350, all aluminum, liftgate on the back, runs on propane)
much better for hauling tools, equipment, signs, & motorcycles!


but now a deer committed hari-kari on my front end...

My father had one like that. Stuffed an early Chrysler hemi into it. Complete with the push button automatic. Dodge has finally caught up to him.
