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.
