Both dessert storm, and dessert fox too. Plus he "spend $65000" and did a "fram off restoration." This is the real deal guys

Probably a DOD contractor who is getting the squeeze by the GAO.

Check out his other toy for sale. Wouldn't this put a grin on your face:

I'm confused too... Zebra's have brown stripes, not Jet Black.

It's off Georgetown Pike, but I can't figure out exactly where.

Oh, and it looks awful.

I would rather have $65k than that truck. I wonder how much effort it took to restore the whole truck and keep all the rusted screws and bolts. The only galvanized frame I see is on the benches in the back.

$65k invested???? This guy has much to much money to throw away. Besides being one ugly ass paint job I keep asking why the shiny diamond plate on the sides and blacked out parts? How about those tree hanging folding steps? Improperly lashed khaki canvas? White steering wheel? Basic black vinyl seats? Farm animal siren? Rhinolined hoopset? Did anyone notice where the intake was broken and welded up because the intake/exhaust manifolds were bolted tightly together before attaching the the cylinder head? A heavy layer of undercoating tells nothing of the frame condition. It could well hide major repairs. Anyway, if he gets $12k to $15k he'd be damn lucky in my humble opinion.

I'm assuming that most of the $65k was spent in figuring out how to do a frame-off restoration while not actually removing a single bolt/screw. Magicians can be expensive!

That would make sense, since his photobucket name is marwandien.

109 Lightweight....interesting.
After looking at the detail photos, $65,000 is damn funny.
