To quote one Homer Simpson "Awww I want it now!"Wink

We used to call the Goats our 'advance party limos'. One of the coolest ATVs I've ever driven.

 Looking forward to seeing both these builds MikeYes. Our you going to add the LoinMarc barrels?

Must've been some good stuff. :-) Oh, that is the XO! No camo disipline in that shot and they're just begging to get busted!

Good job on the review Mike! Very interesting and about time but, I'd have to hit the lottery for this one.

They were all around us in the early '70's but not part of 2-4INF's TO&E thankfully. IICRC, they were not well liked by the arty guys in the next kaserne over.

Anyone traveling to Quintana Roo (Cancun) Mexico, there's a Mexican Naval Base in the area that had a slew of (Gama) Goats in a Motor Pool two (?) years back. Kind of spiffy in navy grey, don't recall any markings and I'd be damn if I was going to whip out the camera. (There were also Mi-17's in the area for you rotor guys.)

Thanks,
Kevin Keefe

LOL... I wouldn't know... Our Survey guys were so "well-camouflaged" that no one ever saw them until pay-call...

IICRC, they were not well liked by the arty guys in the next kaserne over.

One of the coolest ATVs I've ever driven.

 I DID like driving it in convoys... It was easily the most comfortable ride of any "Army truck" I ever drove, but DAYUM! that thing's engine was loud...

Several years back I remeber seeing these things stacked like fire wood awaiting their turn to be dragged out onto the ranges as targets - what a waste. They were next to a line of M60s that looked like you could fire them up and drive away.

Summer break - build on
