Saw one in Margaret River last year Doug, but it was just parked in someone's driveway.Not sure if it was the same one though. Wouldn't mind hiring it to pick up my 90 mil lotto win next week, lol.

Doug,

There's at least one if not more around Sydney as well. Didn't notice if it had rear wheel steering but it sure is funny watching it negotiate a corner.

Had the pleasure to be driven around Freo getting pictures taken for our wedding!

Whata blast!! Fantastic inside and really topped off a great day!

The interior is amazing with sound system and screens all over as well as the built in bar!

Great to be able to get into without crawling around especially the ladies in nice dresses! The extra height is perfect for a limo!

Matt.

LOL!
I think ramp-over might be one of several issues in the bush! Would be nice and comfy on something like the Great Central Road where it's undulating and straight.

I remember seeing a fleet of these in San Fran back around 2002. Had a chuckle at the time, as the stretch mods had turned a reasonably capable 4wd into something less capable. And they weren't as long as the ones in Perth!

Gidday Doug. Here ya go!

We chatted to the driver at our Motel in San Diego a few months ago. The vehicle did have rear wheel steering. It must have been interconnected and the rear wheels only moved about 10 -15 degrees.

If you want a larger file size for your collection message me.

Hi Doug, as Didi said, a couple in Newcastle area, owned by Spero, I think from Spero electronics fame. The last two weddings I went to, both wedding parties hired them, the last one I went to, the guys also hired the Hummer ute. Very impressive, same driver in the stretch both times, had a yarn to him, he loves the vehicle. Was imported/stretched in Melbourne, he had to go pick it up. They were planning at the time I spoke to them to get another one, done in pink, calling it the Playboy/Playgirl Hummer, apparently the girls love them... and perhaps the notoriety!

At least one in Adelaide. Black with silly spinner wheels. Total waste of metal.
