Last night the Discovery Channel gave Jessie an armored vehicle for completing 21 or 22 episodes of Monster Garage. did anyone see this? what kind of vehicle was it? i could hae sworn that i heard "Barret" when they were talking about it. also it had a MG mounted on top of it, do you think that it was a real MG, or just a copy?

I saw that --- I guess he can park that next to his Ferrari 360 now. I do not know what vehicle that was, but I did notice a UK flag on the back, I think. The machine gun would have to be in-operable. Pretty cool gift though.

I believe they are street legal. I think they sell for $10-15,000, Not sure about that tho.

Yeah, I saw that last night. Never seen Jesse smile as big as that before. I heard him say, sort of under his breath, "Man I am very hard to buy gifts for."

Street legal question: it looked like it had legit CA plates on it.
