by the way the only thing that exploded was the battery ... had about 20 ltrs of lpg and 120 ltr of fuel at the time

could have been heaps worse just lucky the guys coming the other way saw what was happening and there was room for them to get out of the way

this is my current tonka toy

I guess this is worthy of the truck category and definatly US heritage.
I owned this around 1990 for a few years. 1974 Cj5 Jeep, had a nasty little 307ci through all Dana driveline and a rear locker. It had a bit of a problem keeping the front end on the ground with any weight in the back! Heaps of fun off road ,but i had a big off when i launched it into space off a big dune. Luckily i only popped out the winscreen,cracked the fuel cell and inverted a front leaf spring on the landing.Scared the crap out of me and my mate and I was lucky to keep it shiny side up. Dukes of Hazzard style.
I miss that rig.......
