Jeff's Cool Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (sold!!!)
Kawasaki Ultra 250X Jet Ski now replaced by Ultra 300X!!!
1985 Chevrolet M1009, 4x4, 6.2 liter Diesel
Nothing special about this, except:
I have the M1009 licensed and State inspected as a regular vehicle, so that I may drive it with no restrictions. The M1009 will act as my cool (no A/C), bad weather, 4X4, sacrificial vehicle. It really does turn a lot of heads, although some simply think it is a bubba camo'd hunting truck.
Note the three original military antennas. Without the tie downs, they are way over height. I don't drive it much with all sections on the antenna, at the risk of hitting trees, power lines and birds. With just the lower half installed, it still looks cool and no worries about the height.
My neighbor Dan, the designated M1009 driver for all parades. Officially qualified and ready for HQ duty. He looks official! This was July 4, 2009 and it was a HOT day that day! Did I mention no A/C in my military vehicles? *** Note: My other neighbors Mark and Kara are now officially M1009 qualified drivers *** Their qualification required a large sum of Federal stimulus money, but after the grant $$ arrived, they were good to go!
Here is my favorite co-pilot. She has even driven the M1009 once! Becky is such a great sport to ride around in anything I own.
The M1009's and M1008's (GM pick-ups) came right down the same GM assembly line with the other GM C/K type vehicles. Below are a couple of low resolution pictures of the line.
That's all for the M1009.
