These armored vehicle sightings are too much fun. And not just because of how unbelievably ridiculous they look parked among Toyota Corollas and other plebeian methods of civilian transport. This particular rig, which appears to be right off the set of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, seems to be loosely based off of a late model Ford Excursion or heavy duty Ford pickup. As if the Excursion didn’t already carry a large footprint at ~ 19 feet, the owner made sure there was plenty of extra room for his entourage of bodyguards by adding an additional set of doors. I have no idea what the well-to-do owner does for a living to warrant such extreme protection measures, but apparently threat levels were low enough for a quick stop at the strip mall in Hollywood. I guess Target and WalMart are neutral ground for people with dubious intentions.
Thanks for the snaps Steve!
