I saw an Iltis for sale at the Fall Hershey in the Car Corral for
around $8,000 if I remember correctly. It was in nice shape with
Canadian markings and paint scheme...Just couldn't find the money in
my wallet...

As for rolling a Hummer, My younger brother bought a civilian model
last year for the tidy sum of $85,000. It is nice, but I wouldn't
spend a quarter of that amount for it. The worksmanship and finish
were not up to that price standard and as I drove it I was listening
to the electric fuel pump pulsing away under the dash someplace.

Anyway to make a long story short, a cousin rolled the thing on the
flats in the California desert about 3 months ago. He did about
$20,000 worth of damage to the body. So even the Hummers are not roll
