Re: Pinz owners in San Diego...I've got a new owner for you!

That looks like a perfectly acceptable new home for the white 712. Let's hope that Graham "Basher" Downes enjoyed it while he had it... Now that I know you're a G-Wagen owner too, you may be hearing from me when I finally get around to pulling the trigger on one. Enjoy the white truck and feel free ...

Re: Pinz owners in San Diego...I've got a new owner for you!

The white 712 has now changed hands since the tragic and obviously untimely death of "Basher", the fellow to whom I had sold it.

Jorgo - care to fill "the family" (AKA the forum folks) in on those details sir?

Re: Pinz owners in San Diego...I've got a new owner for you!

I heard about it over the weekend. I only spent one day with him when he came to town to learn about the Pinzgauer but he was obviously an extremely accomplished and successful guy. Very intense and driven. Was probably tons of fun to hang out with. No wife, no kids so I'll be curious to learn was c...

Re: Looking to Buy a Pinz, but lots of Questions, please hel

They ARE loud compared to "normal" vehicles. When I got my first one (a 710M) it reminded me of being in a helicopter! Vibration, noise, lots of gear noises...and both of mine have been exceptionally clean and well maintained. Even a perfect one (or nearly as mine have been) are intended for a fairl...

Re: Leather Steering Wheel Cover

I had one of those but I felt like it was just too big and thick. The alternative was easy...

Go to a bike (bicycle, not motorcycle) shop and buy a package of black handlebar tape. Mine held up great for years and was a great improvement over the stock wheel. Cheap too!

Re: Has anyone imported a vehicle and how was the money tran

Lots of good comments here. I've been investigating dealers in The Netherlands, Belgium and Poland for the G-Wagen I'd like to acquire. My first thought is to find one of "us" from the forum who can be your eyes and ears on the ground to facilitate the transaction. If that's not an option, i think t...

Re: Most confusing winch bumper design so far

I saw that truck at Thilo's a number of years ago and it didn't have that item at the time. The subsequent owner has introduced himself here on the forum since then so perhaps he (or she) will weigh in with some of the details on that.

That truck turned out great guys! It also looks a whole bunch better than when I first shared my photos of it with you.

Re: How to trash a nice G-wagen

In my village, is nothing exciting happen ever except time that we take my rat bastard former brother in law Igor's G-Wagen and decide to play trick on him and winch it to top of his apartment block.

Is such and fun idea. Everyone in village laughed for many days and days!

Re: This Texas ebay Pinz has me seeing RED!

I suspect that those guys in San Antonio, Texas Pinzgauer did build those trucks up. They have (or did have) a fairly big clientele of folks with ranches in South Texas where a Pinzgauer makes perfect sense for hunting applications. That windshield modification is designed so that hunters don't have...

So challenging a guy in a new G500 to a race would probably be a bad idea!

Re: My new Steyr! 1979 300GD G-wagen - with new winch bumper

I'm much more focused on finding the cleanest unit and don't feel strongly about SWB or LWB as long as it's clean, rust free and has a solid drive train.

While on the subject (?) Dave, do you have an opinion about a 240? Is it going to be capable enough or even slower than a Pinzgauer?

That does look great Vince and is the hard top version of what I'm seeking.
