I’ve been watching an old Sci Fi show from 1970 called UFO which I was an absolutely and dedicated fan of. One thing led to another and the Missus and I ended up going through memory lane revisiting TV shows from the 60s that we liked. I realized that some items that I wouldn’t mind owning can be tracked to those damn TV shows.
The Man From Uncle Pistol Carbine was a modified & modular Walther P-38. Mr. Solo would carry it in its shortened version but when a longer shot was needed, he would produce the stock, extended barre, High Cap mag and scope out of thin air and assemble it.
McHale’s Navy is the only thing that would make me get in the ocean but only in a PT Boat. And of course, it has to be fully armed.
Daktari’s Land Rover seemd to be able to deal with any terrain in any condition. It got me interested in Off-Roading which I did for many years and until my back complained. But I still want one.
I did mention I did Off Road and here is the other culprit: Rat Patrol. A fully desert-decked WWII Jeep is in the eternal wish list. Also I have a spot reserved for the Kubelwagen but only if it follows the original Afrika Korps specs.
OK, so I am old…. but not too much 🙂
