We Found Military Trucks In The Streets Of Manhattan | Carspotting

October 9, 2019


– This vehicle’s not supposed to be a vehicle made by somebody. This vehicle is supposed to
be America in vehicular form. (upbeat music) Hi, and welcome to Carspotting, the show in which we find interesting cars parked on the street in New York, (upbeat music) or driving through New York. (upbeat music) Now is the part where I go
walk off and look at cars, but I can’t, because I’m stuck in the
middle of Park Avenue. (laughs)
(upbeat music) What a weird show. (upbeat music) Hi, welcome to Carspotting, the show in which I waste all
of my camera people’s time. (laughs) (upbeat music) Everyone’s pretty relaxed on
a good, warm day in New York. (upbeat music) There are no cars here, because it’s a park. (upbeat music) People, not cars. (upbeat music)
No cars, just people. (upbeat music) All right, this is good. I was lying to you before. I actually did find a car in the park. (upbeat music) There is one car. I don’t mean only to find
a commercial vehicles. These are vintage vehicles, but sadly, a lot of old
cars are being used as sort of props as much as they are cars. This is a Piaggio,
(upbeat music) as you can see on this
little badge over here. Ape. Spelled A, P, E, which means, I think a bee
or something like that. It’s actually a very interesting vehicle. This is one of the most produced vehicular designs in human history. So, this say, post-war Italian, three-wheeled truck
called the Piaggio Ape, it was designed to be put into production after World War II, when most of Europe was just bombed out and had absolutely no money. So, they figured people wouldn’t be able to afford a whole pickup truck, so they started designing and
selling three quarters of one. (laughs) So, you can see, it’s got a regular pickup truck back, but the front is basically a motorcycle. And, if you look in, it’s like steering like a motorcycle, and I say it’s one of the most popular vehicle designs in history, because you don’t realize that this was actually sold under license and became all of the
three-wheeled pickup trucks that you see across South
Asia and Southeast Asia, (upbeat music)
like Tuck Tucks, and Bajajs, and all of those things are all– trace their ancestry right back
to this little Piaggio Ape. So, even though now it’s
serving as a makeshift bar here at whatever this little restaurant place is in Union Square. It’s actually a proud little
piece of automotive history. I think one that’s not appreciated
as much as it should be. And, I’m gonna look for the armory, which is around here. This one’s interesting, because it’s got a bunch of military vehicles parked outside. (upbeat music) Here’s a guy recording a Super Duty. (upbeat music) Excuse me, sir.
(upbeat music) Do you like this truck?
(upbeat music) – Don’t speak English. – Ah.
(record skidding) – Spanish.
(record skidding) – Ah.
(upbeat music) Well, we have a translator. (upbeat music)
(cameraman talking softly) How would you say, “Do
you like this truck?” (upbeat music) (cameraman speaking in Spanish) (upbeat music)
– Yes, yes. (upbeat music) (cameraman speaking in Spanish) (upbeat music)
– Por qué? (laughs) (upbeat music)
– Have you seen other cars– trucks or cars that you like in America? (laughs) – Do you think this truck
would fit on your street? (upbeat music) (laughs) – You should get one.
(upbeat music) (laughs) You should get one. (cameraman talking softly) – (laughs) Yeah, they’re
cheap as hell over here. You should just bring it on over. (laughs) – You should just fill
your luggage with some gas, and then fly back with it. (laughs) (laughs) – Since we’re tourists, basically, even though we live here, it’s fun to see– You never really notice
what is so different about what’s right in front of you. This is a New York City Parks vehicle. It’s right by the Union Square Park. It’s an F-2 or 350,
(upbeat music) which to me is just another truck, ’cause I live in America
and there are tons of these, but these Spanish tourists are like, “Oh, my God, I have to take
video of this gigantic truck,” which would be the size of a commercial vehicle back in Spain. Well, still, let’s continue and try to find some even bigger trucks. I promise even larger. (upbeat music) Cordoba. There’s a Cordoba car. The Chrysler Cordoba,
(upbeat music) which was marketed by Ricardo Montalban, (upbeat music) who was a pioneering,
Spanish-speaking actor in Hollywood. Wow, what a turnaround. The Chrysler Cordoba is
best known for its ad, which I think is actually misquoted as having rich Corinthian leather. (upbeat music) I think in the ad, he actually says, “Fine
Corinthian leather.” (buzzer honks) – [Spokesman] I request
nothing beyond the thickly cushioned luxury of seats
available even in soft, Corinthian leather. – Which is funny, because there’s no such
thing as Corinthian leather. (upbeat music) It was just Chrysler just
making stuff up from the 70s. The reason Chrysler, of
course, was making stuff up about its interiors in the 70s was because in 1973
there was the oil crisis, (upbeat music) which pushed for not only
stricter emission standards, but also you really have
to get better fuel economy. Leaded gasoline was going out. High compression engines were going out. Gas was expensive. People weren’t buying high
horsepower cars anymore, (upbeat music) so Detroit had to figure out reasons to get people to buy cars when they weren’t marketing
them on power and performance. So, you would start seeing
them market things on luxury. So, something that they would’ve tried to sell some muscle car in the 60s, in the 1970s, they would’ve tried to sell
as a personal luxury car. So, that’s why Chrysler went from (upbeat music) its heydays of Dodge Chargers that they Duke Boys were jumping away from Sheriff whomever, to Ricardo Montalban telling you about a leather which doesn’t exist. (upbeat music) Yes, here we are, I should also say this is Gramercy Park, New York City’s only private park. (upbeat music) I don’t know if it’s its only. It’s certainly its most famous. You have to live around here to get a key to be able to enter it. Since it’s this nice little pocket of– (upbeat music) pocket of quietude in
the middle of the city, I just want to point out this super sweet Jeep Grand Cherokee, which would have been the next big Jeep after the XJ Cherokee. This was the one that came after. It’s like the XJ, except bigger, and this is from the early 90s on. So, I think this was sold from ’93 on. Anyway, another very
popular vehicle for Jeep, as you can see this is
in really nice condition. Here’s the owner.
(upbeat music) We’re doing a show on interesting cars parked on the street in New York. (upbeat music) Do you mind if I ask you a question or two about this lovely Jeep? – Could you say it again? (upbeat music) – How is it– is it reliable, or– – [Host] Not bad, and it’s the V8 in these things, right? (upbeat music) – [Host] Is it the dual four-liter, or– (upbeat music) – [Host] They’re sick. I mean– – [Host] Have you ever– has it only ever just been like a construction vehicle for you, or– (upbeat music) (Host laughs) – [Host] Aw, man. Yeah, no. It’s good. (upbeat music) (Host laughs) (upbeat music) – [Host] Well, it looks
like it’s been good to you. (Host laughs)
(upbeat music) – The thing is, if you’re talking to random
people about their cars, they’ll clam up, because they’re like, “What do
you wanna know about my car? You don’t need to know that about my car.” But, if you’re like, “Oh,
what an interesting car. This thing is so cool.” They’re like, “It is. I would love to talk about it.” But, that’s how you do it. (upbeat music) Observe. This is quite interesting. New York, being an old town, there are still old armories, (upbeat music) and while I only know this armory for having art shows in it, it’s always fun to turn the corner in the middle of Manhattan and find large military
vehicles parked on the street. I wanna point out, to give you a sense of scale, we’re actually very lucky to have (upbeat music) a rather nice XJ Jeep Cherokee, this being a ’99, even younger than the
last one we looked at, with nice street tires on it, actually, and then, so this is like a truck, and this is a truck. (laughs) This is a proper,
genuine military vehicle, which is, I guess, it’s
here because of the armory, and so every so often, you’ll be walking around, and you’ll turn the corner and then boom, here’s the armory, and here is this full, (upbeat music) vast military truck full in desert regalia, ready to blow up ISIS or whatever. (upbeat music) Obviously, you’re not
selling the newest model to someone walking into
the dealership every year, so they don’t have–
(upbeat music) They feel less inclined to
really advertise who makes them. This vehicle is not supposed to be a vehicle made by somebody, this vehicle is supposed to
be America in vehicular form. (upbeat music) It’s just funny see how huge
they are parked on the street, because everyone is always
telling you in a car website, “Oh, it’d be a good city car. It’s small.” And, then you go into an actual city, in midst of Manhattan, and there’s this. (laughs) (upbeat music) Joint Base Lewis MCCH. (upbeat music) It’s for outbound freight only. So, this is a truck, truck, even though it’s a military vehicle, it’s really for hauling stuff around, just military stuff, stuff of the military.
(upbeat music) Yeah. I mean, look at this thing. It is charming how much sort of interesting stuff you can find. If I’m not mistaken, (upbeat music) this would be– to have some sort of, maybe– I think this would have a
tire reinflation system, which would be all of this gobbledygook, in that the tire could be blown out and then reinflated through the vehicle. I think, I don’t know that for sure. (upbeat music) There’s also lots of very fun stuff that you don’t get to see in regular cars, because they’re meant to be– they’re obviously not
meant to be sold to people and be parked in your driveway. They’re supposed to be used and serviced. So, all of the instructions of them, instead of being in an owner’s manual, are just spray painted right on. You can see it’s set up like a regular sort of
Isuzu delivery truck, or a UD or whatever, where the cap lifts forward, and your gigantic, presumably huge diesel engine is in it. I feel bad that I don’t know as much about these things as I should. Middle school me would
be very disappointed, because I really liked
trucks and things like this. (upbeat music) I think these are
actually the most handsome of all of the sort of military trucks, these ones. Oh, and there’s a hummer on the street. Let’s go check this out. Oh, look, people love this thing. They’re tourists already looking at it. (upbeat music) This is a real Hummer, not like the stuff that you would buy at dealerships in 2006 or whatever. (upbeat music) It’s a real ass military Humvee, H, M, M, M, V, (upbeat music) which stands for Hummer, (upbeat music) Most Motor Vehicle. (upbeat music) This was the vehicle to sort of supersede America’s long standing run of Jeeps, which is why it’s still got this face, which looks agro for
the time, but actually, in comparison to today’s much more oppressive military vehicles, it’s actually pretty calm
and collected by all things. By regular car standards, this
thing is unbelievably beefy. (upbeat music) I mean, like a regular car– the Piaggio that we saw not that long ago was a three lug wheel, and this one I’m not even
gonna bother counting it. If you’re on the internet, you have all the time in the world to count each and every one of them. You could pause this video
and then count them all. (upbeat music) And, then I would look
really stupid by comparison. You can see it’s got some sort of stuff that are ready for maintenance. It’s got the wheel chock
so it doesn’t roll ahead, and it’s got actually what looks like an oil change bin tied in together. And, also, since this is
a pickup trucky version, (laughs) in New York City, someone has thrown trash into it, because if there’s
anything New Yorkers are, it is disrespectful of
absolutely everyone, even if they are people
in the military right now. Hi, guy looking at me from up the street. Hey. Hey, friend. (upbeat music) Hey.
(upbeat music) Cool.
(upbeat music) It’s super wide in there. So, it only seats like four, but there’s this huge,
massive transmission tunnel, so they can be four wheel drive. These things– People who buy the
civilian versions of them will love to tell you how
bad they are to drive around, because they’re so heavy and slow, but they’re really meant to
be durable and long lasting. (upbeat music)
Anyway, yeah, so this is a– This is what the real
deal Hummers look like, and on the street they look
completely friggin’ ridiculous, because they’re so big and trucky. Look. Look at this snorkel, it’s huge. (upbeat music)
(laughs) You could ford so much
water in this thing. (upbeat music) That’s the thing about
military vehicles is, I, myself, in being anti-war guy, I hope that one day all of
these vehicles will only be used so that nerds like me can geek out about driving them through big puddles. Though, in fact, they’re
used as tools of war, which is fine. I mean, it’s not great. I would–
(upbeat music) but, you know. They’re interesting. (upbeat music) So, thanks for tuning into
Carspotting this week. I think we all learned a lot about some interesting vehicles, and the taste and trades
of New York and Manhattan, and unexpected things that you wouldn’t seem to find on the street, and yet you do. So, tune in next week, and we’ll find some other vehicles, probably ones which are less trucky. This has been a very trucky, and commercial, and military vehicle one, and hopefully next time we’ll find some cool sports cars or something, maybe some sort of amphibious vehicles, I don’t even know what we’re gonna find. Anyway, thanks. See you then, ciao. (upbeat music) Hello, and welcome to Carspotting, where we go finding interesting vehicles parked on the street in New York. Yeah! Let’s go find some. (laughs) (laughs) Oh, yeah. I should walk out. Well, I’ll walk out now, ha-ha! Now, we’ll go find some cars. (laughs)

    Want to see what it's like driving one of those massive cargo trucks? Go to my channel. I got a 40 minute long video of me driving one from back when I was in the Army. Also the truck you saw particularly is called an LMTV (Light Medium Tactical Vehicle) which hails from the FMTV (Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles) covering a variety of chassis and role design. You can find them in various flavors from the cargo versions like you see there to wrecker versions meant for vehicle recovery operations. Earlier ones were no armored and latter ones were built with aluminum cab armor. Versions that were in combat zones can be identified by the windows. The one you see is a standard uparmored version while the combat zone versions had much smaller windows (also armored) which had metal grates to protect them against RPG strikes.

    Interestingly the frame is also aluminum. It's got a turbocharged Caterpillar C7 in it which can also be found as a commercial engine in a variety of vehicles. 4×4 is only available in low gear ranges otherwise it's in 4×2. The Alison transmission is what you would expect. It's generally an all around solid truck for the most part when it was properly serviced. I always liked them. I know many others who didn't but whatever.

    They are manufactured by BAE, Oshkosh, and Stewart Stevenson (although the latter doesn't make them anymore for the military I believe).

    Driving wise it's incredibly top heavy to the point there is an inclinometer inside the cab so you don't accidentally roll it. For a truck it's size it accelerates decently enough and the brakes are good but that's expected with air brakes. There's a lot of body roll it floats a lot. It's meant to be driven at 50 – 55 MPH which is the max speed limit for military vehicles per Army regulation. The governor is probably a big reason why it's not nearly as fast as it probably could be but it would be wildly unsafe to drive it at high speeds unless you are a very experienced driver. I personally got one up to 78 MPH on the autobahn (a feat I do not care to repeat). Steering is also really loose.

    That said I preferred them over HMMWV's because they were nowhere near as stiff and didn't kill your back on a long drive. Also all the uparmored ones had air conditioning which was a godsend.

    "Hummers are built to be durable and long lasting"

    Every single time I have worked with the US Military in places like Iraq and more recently, Estonia, their hummers always break down. Their cross-country capability is shocking. They have absolutely no decent armour on them. They are uncomfortable.
    The British used to use the WMIK (Land Rover), which always got blown up by IEDs, but it was still a damn-sight safer, more reliable and more comfortable than the Hummer. Come forward to today, the Jackal which replaced the British Land Rover may be an open-top vehicle, but it just excels in every single way compared to the hummer that the US still uses. Don't go saying that they're replacing it soon, because the literal only difference in the replacement compared to the hummer is the reliability.
    The US is stupid.

    So first vehicle is an LMTV, they're used to haul stuff around from point to point, pretty clear there. Second vehicle is the infamous Humvee. The chock block and drip pan (not oil change thing as you called it) have a purpose as BII or basic issue items, since this vehicle was on the street and just sitting there unsupervised the chock block and drip pan should've been under the vehicle where they belong. Also there are eight lugnuts. I understand that civilians don't know a lot about military vehicles or the military as a whole but really you should've just looked it up on your phone and then continued the video. It was absolutely cringeworthy seeing you try to explain something you knew nothing about and then to make ignorant claims. Modern vehicles aren't anymore oppressive. Humvees and modern troop carriers like the MATV, MRAP, and so on are all armed with the same weapons. The only difference is that now we have a better chance of surviving after getting hit by an RPG or running over an IED. Do some research next time, please.

    HMMWV HIGH MOBILITY MULTI-PURPOSE WHEEL VEHICLE. Hummer is something a rich guy drives to get coffee at starbucks with his friend Chad, who also couldn't join the military. It's also something you get from a woman.

    Don't quit your day job. Your Mommy probably pays your rent and you work as a waiter for pocket money while you kid yourself that you make videos. Go back to Minnesota or wherever you're from. Get a grip.
