Oshkosh Medium Tactical Vehicle – East 26th Street, NYC

Oshkosh Medium Tactical Vehicle - East 26th Street, NYC

Since founding Man on the Move in 2007, we have spotted our fair share of rides in Manhattan. Chrome Lambos, homemade rat rods and everything in-between. I guess there’s a first time for everything though because I have never run into a Medium Tactical Vehicle in Murray Hill before. And when I say Medium Tactical Vehicle, that’s exactly what I mean (wanna see the brochure). Unsure of exactly what I was looking at upon first sight, I did some body inspection and found an Oshkosh logo painted over in camoflogue. Let’s just say these guys don’t make kids overalls. Oshkosh Defense manufacturers some utterly heavy duty, all-conquering rigs capable of traversing any harsh environment earth (or war) is capable of mustering.

Here are a couple of fun facts:

  • 15 Ton payload (on-road) and 7 tons (off road)
  • Capable of traversing a 60% gradient and 30% side slope
  • Can ford up to four feet of water (thats taller than many cars)
  • Available in 4×4 or 6×6

Lambo Murcielago - W16th St & West End Blvd: St. Louis Park, MN

The new Aventador is getting so much love lately that it’s easy to forget how delightfully sinister it’s predecessor still is. All hail the bad ass V-12 glory that is Murcielago.

BMW i3 Mega City Vehicle – West 55th Street, NYC

BMW i3 Mega City Vehicle - West 55th Street, NYC

I excitedly spotted BMW’s new i3 the other day. A milestone for the brand, it represents the first ever zero emissions, mass-produced BMW. I didn’t think I was going to like it based on the goofy pictures I had seen up until this point, but it’s actually distinguishing in the sheet metal. The design, while certainly not elegant, does come off substantial and upscale in its look and feel. I suppose that makes sense considering the blue and white roundel on the hood. Looking forward to driving it one of these days to see if it lives up to the sporty Ultimate Driving Machine mantra.

Rolls Royce Pickup – I-95, Ft. Lauderdale

Rolls Royce Pickup - I-95, Ft. Lauderdale

As they say, sometimes reality is stranger than fiction. In his classic series, John D. MacDonald‘s protagonist Travis McGee drove a Rolls Royce pickup truck in his hometown of Ft. Lauderdale. This morning, our loyal fan Steve Rice spotted this fascinating minotaur of a luxury automobile on I-95 in Ft. Lauderdale. After doing a bit of research on the El-Camino of Rolls Royces seen here, we quickly discovered that it isn’t the sole member of this automotive tribe. Even funnier, they all seem to hail from Ft Lauderdale.Thanks Steve! Grade A spotting.

Second Sighting: Mysterious Homemade EV – East 64th Street, NYC

 Second Sighting: Mysterious Homemade EV – East 64th Street, NYC

We have acquired another, more telling angle of the mysterious, homemade, solar powered EV currently humming around Manhattan [emissions free of course]. It definitely appears to be of the vintage British variety, either originating as an MG or Caterham, or both.

Somebody flag this owner down and ask questions next time he’s spotted!!!! We must know more about this amazing piece of custom engineering.
