Iran might find a use for that thing.

Frog enemies? Would Bucky O'Hare want this?

Please refrain from using ethnic slurs, subby.

We got a deal on it as military surplus.  Although we never found a use for it, you might.  Bid early and often!

What is that block down there? Also where's the accelerator and brakes?

This is that Rio Dell thing?

To be fair, Rio Dell thought they could use it for municipal maintenance, not cops playing soldier.   They just never did.   Used to live in Rio Dell, a long long time ago.

Thank god. Without this military device the city workers will stop being authoritarian. Just the existence of that paint job was making them violent.

No big deal, they've already surrendered.

Alex Jones seen eyeing the frogs forlornly. Such a waste of beautiful amphibious kissing machines.

That almost looks like someone's half-assed self made cupholder, but the holes look too big for that.  The accelerator and brake pedals are probably just hidden by the shadows.  Everything underneath the dash is dark so it all blends in together.

I'd be much more concerned with what appears to be mold or fungus growing all over the steering wheel.

Sorry, had to look that up, never heard that one before! Family always said I was French, Irish, and Italian. Stubborn, drunken, lover.

No wonder I love FARK🙄

They put a picture up of that too. I have a feeling they don't really want to sell the vehicle.

Destined for a scrap yard.

It's not been maintained, and parts for repair would be next to impossible to find.

And it's not even an interesting enough piece of military hardware to restore for a collection.

" I think it's probably a learning lesson that just because something's free through U.S. military surplus, it's not necessarily something we really need to have."

Dude seems more self-aware than most cops.

"But hey, maybe you have something very heavy to lift without being spotted by animals or enemy snipers. Here's your chance."

Could use it to lift subby's mom off the bed and into the air to then shower/hose her off and clean her up for "fun time".
