VEHICLES

Absolutely random stuff and may not be remotely related to pigeons.

The only thing I drive is a F150 but every once in a while I run into something that just makes me say that's a truck.
How cool is thins thing?
It is not close to being new but also not remotely common.
Whole lot of talent out of Wyoming came out to bring this legendary Dodge back to life.
Comes with 2 or 4 door set up, V8 or turbo diesel engine with all the modern futures added to it.
Check them out: http://www.legacypowerwagon.com/

I like it!
Now all I have to do is come up with the $120,000 to $170,000 price tag on it.
Good luck with that.

1955 Mercedes 404 Unimog

Talking about trucks: don't let its age fool you — the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 404 Unimog ($28,000-$140,000) is still one of the toughest vehicles on the road. Currently located in SoCal, this unique specimen — it was the fourth to roll off the assembly line, and one of only 1,210 produced in the series — is available in as-is condition, or as a fully-restored, better-than-new vehicle. Spec-wise, it offers portal axles, differential locks on both the front and rear, shift-on-the-fly 4x4, a M180 MB gas engine, a low center of gravity, and 17 inches of minimum ground clearance that, when combined with the virtually non-existent front and rear overhangs, gives it the ability to handle approach and departure angles of more than 45 degrees. It's pretty much the beastliest vintage ride you're going to find short of buying a tank.

It might not look like it, but you're looking at the world's fastest big block V-twin.
The Confederate X132 Hellcat Combat Motorcycle ($72,000) set the record of 172.2 mph on the Bonneville Salts, which translates to 200 mph on asphalt.
Only 36 examples of this puppy worldwide.
