Yeah, but what fun is it walking into a dealer ship and saying to the sales lady...

"I'm not leaving till I get a navistar???"

Thanks, but I'll take a....

It is (a dupe) but it doesn't matter, that truck is unbelievable.

I can't think of how I could use it, but I am sure I'd find something.

I agree completely. It's like some queer trying way too hard to be butch.

My father has driven tractor-trailers and tri-axle dumps/concrete mixers since he was 18. Since 1980, he's owned a concrete foundation company. I've owned a concrete finishing company since 1999. Between us, we own and drive over half a dozen 3/4 and 1 ton pickups and a Kenworth boom truck.

I see no practical use for that Navistar vehicle. Calling it a "pickup" is like calling a battleship an armed boat.

I was merely quoting the article. This truck is completely ridiculous to me and I'd take a real Hummer over it anyday.

I'm amused, but I don't really want one. However I wouldn't turn one down if it were given to me, either.

I doubt the Navistar is all that good as an off-road vehicle, though...

Kenworth and Peterbuilt should follow this!

My father has always said that if he won the lottery, he'd have a custom RV built starting with a Kenworth truck as the basis of it.

I think freightliner already has, i seem to recall a blrb in a trade magazine some where about it.

However id rather have one of these.

The new F-450s and 550s should be sufficient enough.

That clears some stuff up. I saw one of these parked in a neighborhood today. I couldn't figure out what kind of parking ticket to give it, so I just let it go. Since I checked the link, I know it is in violation of at least two ordinances and I'll tag it tomorrow morning when I go back to work.

That truck has got to be worth at least 3 additional inches of penis length.
Link Posted: 9/19/2004 5:02:15 AM EDT
No way would I take it offroad...

I dont even think it can fit on the roads here
Link Posted: 9/19/2004 5:07:57 AM EDT
Old Humvee any day of the week over that.

If my MPG is going to suck, its going to suck in style!

Oh, but you know some f'in soccer mom with a GD cell phone glued to her ear WILL buy one. I'm sure it will come with child seat mounting points.

Don't know who this was directed at, but just because I posted that I saw no practical use for one DOES NOT mean I don't think you should be able to purchase one.
