OSHKOSH (AP) – Arnold “The Terminator” Schwarzenegger quietly slipped into town to test drive some of the military vehicles at Oshkosh Corp.
Company spokesman John Daggett says Schwarzenegger toured the manufacturing plant Thursday and took a 13-ton mine-resistant ATV for a spin on the test course. Daggett says Schwarzenegger became acquainted with the Oshkosh military vehicles when the company entered a hybrid Light Concept Vehicle in the Baja 1000 race across the Mexican desert several years ago.
While Schwarzenegger might have hoped a test drive would lead to a purchase, Daggett tells Oshkosh Northwestern Media the vehicles and their design are the property of the U.S. Department of Defense. The company can’t sell them to private individuals or businesses.
