Staying slightly off topic (I have not heard anything about this rollover in the AU G-community yet)
Speaking of Puch, I recently visited the Johann Puch Museum
in Graz, Austria. Its a big shed which is very packed with all sorts of stuff.
It contains many items from the Steyr-Daimler-Puch factory (now Magna Steyr
, founded 1864) and is was very interesting to see how many things this 'contract manufacturer / engineering shop' invented and made for various manufacturers along with a lot of prototyping.
The Puch brand made bicycles, motorbikes and mopeds. Steyr brand trucks.
The assembly line where the Haflinger/Pinzgauer was made was taken over by G-wagen production. G's in Austria were branded 'Puch' not Mercedes and for the French Army were 'P4' which used Peugeot engines. G's were also assembled in Turkey from a CKD kit.
They invented and made the 4WD system for G-wagen, VW Golf Country, VW Synchro, Benz E-matic, Jeep Grand Cherokee (some of which had a badge on the back "Made in Austria") 4WD Fiat Panda, PUch 650TR (like a Fiat 500)
They made the aluminium body of the Mercedes SLS, the stretched body (5-door) for the Aston Martin DB9 Rapide, the KTM Crossbow sports car. Hydrogen storage tanks for cars.
The facrory probably a lot of other stuff which did not make it to the museum. Unfortunatly I did not get to the factory itself.
They currently make the BMW Mini, X3, X5, Z4 and 5-series, Jaguar E-Pace, I-Pace, new Toyota Supra. And many others in the past.
If you ever get over to that part of Europe check it out (along with the Mercedes and Porsche museums in Stuttgart)
They even a created a differential used in Toyota Landcruisers. Anyone recognise this?
