Woher kommt Herr Pinzgauer?

Walking through an elementary school parking lot, I spotted this unusual vehicle trying to blend in with the "normal" cars. A Pinzgauer is a high mobility all-terrain military utility vehicle. The prototype was developed in 1969 and production began in 1971. For more information on this vehicle, click here.

  1. A real mystery. Very strange.

    At least its smileys are friendly.

  2. What an interesting automobile for an elementary school. I immediately thought of some of the video footage of father's who had been in the Middle East returning to surprise their children. Wouldn't it be great if that was the occasion?!

  8. Does the car belong to a parent or to a teacher? Either answer makes me feel scared. Although if you said it belongs to one of the elementary school students I would really shake in my boots!
