Dear Gentlemen
Be so kind to introduce my better half. Has been imported via Holland to Czech Republic 2 years ago with extremely low mileage.

That is a beautiful MUTT! I used to have an M151A2 and I'd love to find one as clean as yours again sometime. Good luck with your truck!

I've always wanted to visit the Czech Republic. My family is of Czech ancestry.

Looks like it was ready for camo paint in the mutt1 pic. Any reason you decided to stay one color?

I believe thats one of those "barstow mutts" that were sent overseas to europe and sold. They wouldn't sell them here but shipped them overseas.

offroadfabworks - there must be stil number of theml in Barstow - beeing an american i would not hesitate and bribe anyone from overthere
maddawg - rethreaded - french ones - I was gob smacked by them on the roads as well as in mud and anywhere else - they work better than they look
BKubu - thanks very much - anyway I do not recomend You to visit Czech Republic in near future unless you will have to.
gimpyrobb - mmm - good question - well its my first and probably last really good military vehicle - and i am more than proud and more than addictive on it. It was the very first military vehicle with ORIGINAL paint - that has been touched by ORIGINAL US MARINES - please note that i have grown up in commies times when US Army was somthing sacred and all of our teenagers gang tended to plan how to leave the country, join the US Army and kill as many commies as possible.
Simply said - i would consider any paint works on my car as lowering its original value.

No2 Diesel - nice appretiation - thanks - beeing surprised that anyone from US knows Tatra - even if it used to be best off road truck system - sure we have friens with civilian as well as military Tatras - and prices are climbing unbelievably
regarding prague - it has altered to freaky spectacle, overpriced merry go round and chocolate box junky trash business place - wanna see something nice??? get out of Prague - or at least the City

All: Here is a link to few pictures from last summer in Czech Republic
