Re: Unimog in "Act of Valor"

A friend of mine is in the "business" and he said those guys in the movie volunteered to do it and now won't be doing that kind of work anymore. They will be working training and support jobs now.
the whole movie thing was bitter sweet for them, but it was pushed on them from up on high.

Re: Engine conversion

Having driven numerous Pinzgauers over the years, I am very happy with the 2.7L Goatwerks motor Jim LaGuardia put in the Uglyduck. It will hold speed or accelerate up most grades. Only on the steepest of inclines do I have to down shift. I won’t be winning any road races but under normal driving con...

Re: Mini San Diego Tech Day Short notice.

Jay bring the mog. It would be great to see you and Donna again. Pinz guys aren’t quite as snobbish as the Mercedes guys. :lol: Some of the pinz guys may not be familiar with the Mog. They may like to see it.

Re: Mini San Diego Tech Day Short notice.

well we don't have anyone "in charge" if AceBee is still willing to host, I don't see why we could not do it sunday. I have girl scout cookie sales from 11-1 on sunday but thats local and don't have a problem being there before and after. Andre and Vinny said they could make it on sunday. so thats: ...

If we hope to get Jim and Andre to come, we need to get some commitments of paying work. Unfortunately burgers and beer will not be enough to lure them down. AceBee needs his exhaust welded. I’ll be fixing my own issues and helping others. If we don't do this now we may not see FatFab out here for a...

On the "Rough Run" the jeep guys didn’t have much interest in the pinz until, we sailed smoothly up the little hill climb they were having so much trouble with. Then the crowd that was watching mobbed the pinz was with cheers and questions.
Good driving Michael.
