The old soldier is also an old cop. The V100 Commando was a military armored car that served Los Angeles Police Department for many years. I think they had three of them.
The M151 Jeep in the TOW configuration.
Another view of the TOW version.
This little US Army tankette was in a Bob Hope movie in about 1940.
The M8 M20 series armored cars were a well liked vehicle and served around the world until just recently. I would not be too surprised to find that some were still at work in South America or Asia someplace.
