Joining The Club

Post by Doug308 » Fri Jun 22, 2018 8:04 pm

Hey guys and gals. After slobbering over Pinzgauers for years I have finally taken the plunge and am buying a 710M this week! And I have to tell you I so stoked!! I have ridden ATVs in the boonies for a long time and been through some hairy stuff but I am looking forward getting out there with the Pinzgauer.


this is what I am getting; https://docs.google.com/document/d/e/2P ... WwKbSv/pub

Looking forward to bugging the snot out all of you for info.

Sweet! And welcome. Add some information on your location. You might have another owner close by.

I live in St. Louis, MO and have some property along the Black River about 2 hours south. Very rugged. Easy to drive 50 miles of logging cuts and never see a road.

If anyone lives close drop me a note. I'd love to make some Pinz buds.

Welcome to the club the Pinz remains one of my favorite vehicles ever. I actively use mine for Search and Rescue and it has never failed to get me, the team, or the subject back to base. It puts a smile on my face every time I drive it

First day out with my 710M I had a group of models ask to shoot pics with it! Made an old fat guy's day.

Well done Doug!! I'm almost in the same boat as you...I finally found one in my city. Hopefully I will pull the trigger once I sort out the heating on the thing. The one I'm looking at seems to be bone stock but in decent condition. Yours looks like it's had a bit more love!

I really love this thing! It is easy to handle. Big enough to haul all of my hunting/camping gear and small enough to get into all of the out of the way places we go. My Austrian Grandmother would be proud.
