Would be well suited for conversion to the quad .50 version of the M3, old school fire superiority.

Always wanted one of these. Perfect for ACK. A German one would be even cooler.

Did you mean to post "half shirt"? A half track is useless to him, whereas a half shirt will bring YEARS of entertainment to the masses.

While hilarious to think about, a half shirt does not fit 3D's 90's grunge band theme. 3D looks and smells like teen spirit... and you don't want to see teen spirit in a half shirt do you?

I will defer to your expertise, as admittedly *most* of my experience has been 2D.

Speaking of which - where the HELL is 2D at these days?

THAT is a very, very good question. The last public sighting of 2D was prior to Larson's Alaskan adventure. That could bode poorly for 2D. He may have become an improvised feux Maxtrax somewhere along the Dalton highway. Perhaps shredded into cardboard body parts in some coyote lair.

Or even worse, 2D may have been repurposed as the "Wilson soccer ball" concubine/companion for a lonely, reclusive gold miner somewhere up in them thar' hills, keeping a working man company through 10 months of winter.

The 2D Briggs on Larson's AK trip was the "copy" (of a copy). There is still an original copy floating around, that the NYC *had* to have (and tore from my cold dead hands). Now he seems to have most likely gotten spit out the bottom of the NYC porn industry I'm assuming.

Can you imagine how fun trail rides would be in a German halftrack with a flamethrower?
