Thought this was pretty cool. Sorry if I sound like a goof; but, if it quacks like a duck......

Very cool, although probably not going to be used for good intentions.

I could not really hear the volume, at work sadly.

My buddy's company builds stuff like that. I have been to their facility a few times since they let me use the lift whenever I want.

My buddy's company primarily builds for foreign dignataries. Diplomats/ambassadors/etc. often carry classified info and property. The inside of their vehicles are considered sovereign territory of their home country.

They also build full armored attack vehicles/trucks for swat teams and various other entities.

These are for an armored security company.

Cool, inconspicuous. They could be transporting bullion and no one would look twice.

Pizza delivery in Detroit or Chicago? Or an inconspicuous commuter car if you happen to work in Mexico.

I think it's a good idea. The usual armored vehicle is a giant SUV that screams HVT inside. This is like a sleeper. Hopefully a little more affordable to the common man as well.

Aren't Texans the only people who say, "all y'all"?

I am a Navy Brat that got stuck in the south. When I go north, they think I sound southern. Here, they think I am a yankee. It ain't just a Texas thing. And the funny thing is, I have never lived north of the Mason-Dixon line(in the U.S.).

I wonder how much weight that adds and if they added stiffer springs or something.

I wouldn't have been able to guess where you're from if it wasn't for that one bit of slang. And your profile, of course. I've been a Southern California boy my whole life so my favorite word is "like". Like totally awesome dude! Like, how much would that Forester, like, cost, or something?

Don't laugh at me. You'll like, hurt my like, feelings.

They came to pick it up when I wasn't therre. I have been wanting to ask them. I would think so. The video doesn't show that box in the back seat as well as you can see it in person. It does not look light. They have gotten 10 or 12 of them from us. I forget. They are wanting more, but they only want white and it's hard finding some.
