Uh...what?

So according to The Washington Post,2 million for a wannabe GPW and another million or so for the wannabe Bantam trailer?Per unit? What a bargain! Our tax dollars are being spent wisely again I see. Doh!

And it's just a pretty modded M151A2... Hell, they should just use the M151 as it was, they are plenty easy to drive, and learn to drive if you can't drive stick.

But, hey, its the US Gov't. Talking sense is like trying to catch a bucket of steam under the midnight sun...

That vvehicle is about 80% M151A2 parts. I 'm sure I read aboput this years ago. What a ripp off for the US taxpayer. Should have bought a few M151s or even one of those Yamaha off road vehicles.

Do you think we could just sell them back the GPWs? well after of course adjusting for storage, and the new inflation rates. We could sell them for only 700000, and call it a deal.
In 30 years we could sell them a Multifuel for $100000, and they would be happy.

I agree that it looks cool for civilian offroading, but after reading about it I dont like it either. First there is no way this thing costs $209,000.00, maybe $50,000.00. Second there is no armor or doors and it will only do 45mph. Its a death trap AND a ripoff.
