looks like a puma

That monstrosity I found on the interwebs is still for sale (the listing expired, but I am sure it will be back up). Color me not-at-all surprised… I still kind of want it, though.

I could really live with this, though:


Yup, that is a fully-functional, street-legal (at least in once-Great Britain) Warthog, built off a 1982 Land Rover Defender 110 with the 2.5L Diesel, for sale for any "reasonable offer" around £17,500 (about $28,000 American, these days).

If it were left-hand drive and in the States, my Bullitt might have cause for concern…

(Found by way of Nerd Approved.)

  1. Chupa-thingy! How about that?

    Wow not only does it look cool, but it looks damn functional!

    I’m all for that! (Tho comparing it to your Bullit is apples and oranges…that warthog would handle like its namesake on the Tail of the Dragon!)

  2. My question is on how many pedals this has. My tank-lady, Sheila, has six pedals… something I find quite odd given but four directions

  3. @ liquidflorian: Bah. A wholly underwhelming base chassis.

    @ Lazy Bike Commuter: Oh. Dear. Lord.


    Go. Watch. Now.

    @ Weer’d Beard: The comparison to the Bullitt was more one of “both suck down way too damned much gas so I can only really afford one”.

    But, still, cruising the Dragon in that thing? I do not care how it handles :).

    @ MAJMike: I really need to re-watch the whole series.

    @ Mussorgsky: SHHHHEEEIILLLLAAAA!!!

  4. Based on an 82 would be nice, no computers to go wrong, pre emissions so good on gas.
    Tad chilly for northern climes, but fine for where you are i think.

  5. @ Linoge:
    I like how you told Lazy Bike Commuter to go watch the video he was quoting.
