We bought our Pinz around 2000-2001. I was still working with conventional 4x4's, and became aware that ex-Swiss vehicles were available at very reasonable pricing. After some investigation and test drives, we decided to buy our Pinz as we could use it right away as a pickup for the property but would also make a neat project vehicles. I sold the Dart & Town Wagon projects largely funded the Pinz purchase.
In the 10-15 years we've owned the Pinz I've made some upgrades (See the Mods section below).
