Is that a Kahn creation?
Why, how, can anybody do that?.........and sell it afterwards, for a profit?
Lost for words.

Actually I'm not lost for words but chances are they are the same as yours. Most of them four letter ones, like "pink" and .........."pink".............and, well you know

But I also found this....

The SAS Pink Panther.

One of the most famous military attack vehicles. In 1968 The Special Air Service SAS bought 72 long range desert patrol vehicles built on Series II 109-inch chassis and transformed by Marshalls of Cambridge for The Regiment. They were delivered in standard green but many were repainted in pink which was then believed to be the best camouflage paint in the desert. Notice the change in color as the angle of view changes.

The reason they were so tough was the combination of guns and equipment ant the guys driving them- the SAS. There were later similar equipped Series I and a lot later 110's. In the Gulf War they proved invaluable as they even outperformed the specially equipped Hummers. The nickname of "Pinkies" stuck on them even if the new ones are no longer painted in that color.

The 2.25 -litre petrolengine was tweaked from the than standard 69bhp to 77b hp and compression was raised to 8,0:1. 9.00x16 tyres were mounted, doors, windscreen and canopy considered as unnecessary for desert driving. Fuel was carried in 4 tanks- a total of 100 gallons. Add to this extra weapons and kits and the weight goes from an empty 1910 kilos to an combat weight of 3050 kg- nearly half a ton more than the standard gross vehicle weight.

The Dunsfold Trust owns one and it can be seen at their Public Days. Another one belongs now to the Gaydon Heritage Museum.

I rolled one on exercise in Deutschland one night, S111, overturned with the gennie running, middle of the night, and petrol pouring onto me from the underseat tanks.
Thank ***k the electrics were too sh*t to ignite the fuel.

Combatgas doesn't burn as well as Civgas apparently. Maybe because it's crapper?

Heads down, as it were.
