Looking at a new car...

I should have bought this when I lived in DeKalb.

After the string of stabbings, armed robberies, and break-ins we had this past year.

How do you know it really has armor plating? Looks like a regular SUV to me.

Take it over to Ken's or Ponch's and they'll test out the armor on that sucker.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Actually, I was thinking you drive it around and we shoot at you. Let us know if one makes it through the armor.

They build those at a place over here in Bedford Park. It was on the History Channel once and they were in the railroad yard over there shooting at a car door to demonstrate the armor.

If I'm gonna dump that kind of cash on an armored vehicle it's gonna be a suburban or a 7 series beemer




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
