The Urban Assault Vehicle

Here are some images from the Shooting Spree, finally. SLA used the last three pictures in the camera for her grandson and family at the picnic. So I walked to Walgreen's twice on Monday to get them developed. They were taken with a disposable camera and so aren't of good quality, like the wonderful photos from some other bloggers. But you can sort of get the idea.

Isn't this just the coolest vehicle ever? It's a big, bad version of the jeep! I totally fell in love with it.

After riding out to the police shooting range on a dusty, bumpy road. It was crowded back there and not everyone enjoyed the ride. But I loved loved loved it, as I wrote in the post after (so long ago, now) the Shooting Spree. Riding out and back in that vehicle was probably the most fun activity of the day, but it would be difficult to pick.

Yep, that's me poking out of the gun turret. Many of us had photos taken like this. We were joking that we're going to use them for Christmas cards, "Peace on Earth" or something like that. Probably not.

Here are two policemen on the Urban Assault Vehicle. I had taken a nifty photo of one standing on top of it in the black sniper outfit. But that photo must not have turned out.

We rode out to the shooting range early on Saturday morning. But when we returned it was on a busy road in the afternoon! Very fun to see the other driver's reactions and their double-take! A few speeded up to get a better look. It was so fun. Ahhhh, the memories! Happy Tuesday!

How cool would it be to drive a street tank like that beast? It would certainly make someone think twice before tailgating you!

Fearsome looking vehicle! And the name .. Urban Assault .. Sorta has that "Don't mess with me" ring to it.


Love the pic of you sticking your head out the top.

Having driven an APC and a Bradley, I'm a little less impressed, although it still looks cool.

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved.
