Default m14 tank/orchard sprayer

I just spoted this one in town and the owner was there too. He explaned quite a bit about it. He said it started life as a m14 military tank personel carrier used in vietnam but they were not liked very much due to the fact that it had a large gas tank that when shot could blow up. It has now been converted to a diesel orchard sprayer.

The owner explaned that it had a very thick steel cargo bed for the troops to ride in and the engine was in the middle with the gas tank next to that.

Man, that's just cooler than all get out. Did I just say that? It must be time for bed.
