Apparently I'm a piker as far as Unimogs go. At least mine was a Cabriolet!

That would have been sporty around the docks.  LOL 

Picture actually somewhat related:

These were built for use as river patrol craft in Vietnam.  Propulsion was normally a pair of V12 Cummins 1710 engines of about 750 HP each driving two shafts with controllable pitch propellers.  But you'll notice the stack with smoke and the bow wave in the picture; there was also a gas turbine that could be engaged to drive both shafts with the diesels disconnected for GTF out of Dodge City speeds if needed.  (Reportedly 40 plus knots!) 

One of the instructors at my alma mater had commanded one of these (Marathon, pictured above) in Vietnam and got the Navy to donate her to the Academy as a training vessel.  The gas turbine was gone by the time we saw her but somehow the deck gun was still there but permanently deactivated.   It was cool as hell to crawl around but impractical as a training vessel.  High maintenance costs with the controllable pitch propellers was the end of her and the government ended up selling them off to one of the gulf states.

That's Harley Quinn.  It's also a 'Chop.

She originated in the early '90s and got her own comic in the late '90s.  She didn't exist in the Adam West / Burt Ward era.

Cesar Romero was the TV Joker.

There was an homage to him in the Nolan film, specifically how he hides under a clown mask disguise.
