V-DRIVE IS ALIVE
I’m calling you out on this. This has to be an April Fool’s joke, but I like the way you guys think.

I got to the last page in my latest mag, and to my surprise, I see this article. I took these pictures of this van in Nampa, Idaho, to prove that these did in fact exist. The guy says he still uses it to pull his boat with. The other cool thing (unproven by me) is he told me that this van
was once owned by a casino mogul from Reno, and he would use it for hunting trips.

The response to the April 2018 Trail’s End column about the unique V-drive 4WD system was varied. Responses ranged from skepticism to excitement. Thanks to everyone who took the time to write us with comments. One of our freelancers thinks he may have access to a surviving V-drive–equipped rig, so stay tuned for more info in an upcoming issue.
