Bug Out Vehicle ? Me thinks the Casspir.

From what I hear, they can be bought for a cheap song. Bad news, the shopping is way over in South Africa so the shipping charges are murder.

Yep… that would be the one.

  1. “From what I hear, they can be bought for a cheap song.”

    Define: “a cheap song”

    Also, how many of them fit in a shipping container?

    1. They are about 22 feet long so …. And we are talking about the pre-Mandela era Caspirs (mid late 90s) so they are in need of TLC … I am guessing high 4 figures

  2. Would need an engine swap. A 130 HP, 5.7L, naturally aspirated (non-turbo) diesel, is pretty weak tea. Drop in a 300HP, 6.7L Cummins crate engine and now you really got something.
