Thats cool. Always nice to have intelligent input.

I deal with CBP daily and some officers amaze me.....

For example I'm working with an officer right now who feels that a G Wagen I am waiting for release of is a 1992. I have provided this officer with a Merc Vin decoder showing its was manufactured the end of 1986, as well as the Dutch army release document showing both the date of manufacture and the in service dates. All documents indicate the truck is a 1987. This is a milspec truck still in its olive drab paint and was built under a specific contract for the Netherlands direct with Mercedes Benz. Being a unibody vehicle and specifically a mercedes there is a high degree of certainty (ie no doubt) the vehicle is what the paper work says it is.

This vehicle looks familiar? Didn't the DOT get this already?

I know what it is, and I drive a puma quite a bit! There are tons of photos of that truck before it was destroyed, and in the image you posted the bonnet is very clearly not a puma model. Either way, it's illegal and it's gone

polish that thing from top to bottom with a brillo pad and hit it a dozen times with a baseball bat and there are a bunch of guys on here that would pay 80k for it, LOL.
