Uncle Stripper wants you..

This one hits pretty much all the GI Joe vehicle high spots: Huge glass cockpits, a scarily exposed turret, and the ability to launch smaller, more comical vehicles. The only thing missing from this is about 12 dudes hanging off of it, but for all I know, they could be on the other side. - via Cracked.com's The 20 Stupidest G.I. Joe Vehicles Ever

I don't mind telling you that I personally owned 5 of their top 20 (including the HAVOC there), and personally thought 10 of their top 20 were completely radical.

Especially the HAVOC.

"In the 1980’s the Triple ‘T’ was our foremost Sergeant Slaughter delivery vehicle, who if you don’t recall, used to be America’s foremost suplex delivery vehicle."

Sgt Slaughter is a goddamned American hero and I'll hear no words agin' him!

Jason - I bet you're just not thinking hard enough.. and to be fair, trying not to remember a toy more ridiculous than that Cobra pogo-thing is probably for the best.
