Unimog: A personal favourite now in Dorset

I see that Dorset Fire Brigade have taken delivery of their new Mercedes-Benz Unimog Fire appliance. What is a bit sad about the vid is that it is not "they" who call it a Unimog - it is a decades old brand. Get a grip, boy.

I have always had a soft spot for Unimogs, being as they are tough, flexible, robust and very capable vehicles. When things get too big for a Landy, get a Unimog. If ever I [bought my Bamboo plantation in Thailand|Move to Sutherland|Retired to a lake in Canada], I would have an old Unimog and probably convert it to series hybrid with a solar panel on the roof for good measure. Of course, no newer than a 406 - the later models were just plain UGLY.
