Don't see these too often.

My old boss who is a genuine German mechanic has a lot of interesting crap that he's collected over the years. One of the most interesting is this circa 1971 Mercedes-Benz Unimog that was rescued from a junkyard many years ago. Originally this Unimog served as an airport snow plow before being retired and rescued again. It does run, but hasn't in a couple of years. According to the owner, it maxes out at about 40mph and is handy for driving around the perimeter of a house to reach your gutters for cleaning them out.
