A vehicle near and dear to my heart, which can turn on a dime despite driving like a crate. The Grumman Long Life Vehicle (LLV)
Produced from 1987-1994, the LLV is used by the US Postal Service and Canada Post as a mail delivery vehicle. Unusual for North America, it is right-hand drive to allow carriers to deliver to curb-mounted mailboxes while driving. Selected as the successor to the DJ-5 Jeep as the USPS's primary carrier vehicle in 1986, the LLV was the only of the competing designs to survive a grueling testing process including over 22,000 miles of driving over every conceivable road surface while stopping, starting, and hauling heavy loads.
However, that was over thirty years ago, and both USPS and Canada Post have begun the process of replacing the LLV due to its lackluster fuel consumption, poor performance in inclement weather, lack of reliable climate control (a fact to which I can personally attest), and increasing maintenance costs as the vehicles continue to age past their projected lifespan.
