There's like, one pristine garage queen thats beautifully maintained and 30 pieces of poo poo held together with bondo and chicken wire that may have only done one roll when flipped while hydroplaning in the desert, but probably more .Bonus points if the DUI or fatality wreck at the front gate next to the 0 days since dui/fatality sign is from your unit, instead of from the British royal Marines turning drunk driving into a competitive sport. In a rental

I remember one of those Asian poo poo box vans that got sold from marine to marine for probably 20 years that my buddy had.

It wouldn't shift out of 1st gear unless you held the button and shoved the handle back and forth like you were pumping water or something.

Also if you sat behind the driver you had to put your feet in specific spots or else they'd hang out of the rust holes

I think every marine has seen a Gunny special a.k.a. the gray humvee (beat up old pickup, where you can tell how fast youre going by counting traffic stripes through the floor, usually owned by a divorced snco who wants to kill and or gently caress his ex wife, who he calls "the fat bitch")

Edit: forgot it has the only pioneering kit that's sl3 complete you'll ever see in your life, in the back.

The only road vehicle I ever bought from another Marine was a beat to poo poo 88 or 89 Ninja that I don't think the dude ever changed the oil in, the clutch was super hosed, and the gauge cluster didn't work lol. Then I traded it for a lawnmower when I got out. That bike was still in better shape than so many other cars, and that's terrifying.

Oh hey, the last guy I know who bought it was a sgt who'd been busted to private 6 times and had the promotion patents on his barracks wall.

I think he was on his 3rd wife and he told me how much he loved and missed his wife while having both hands down the shirts of two buy me drinky girls.

I hear he finally made staff when I left.

I never bought blues because they are terribly expensive and lol at affording them on LCPL CPL SGT SSGT or less pay. Plus I liked my alphas a lot, always felt like grandpa coming home from Big Two
