So we got a call for a 1975 International Scout 20 miles in the desert backcountry. We had to drag up the mountains and through some rough terrain.

Curious if that was a standard why didn't yo use 2nd gear and pull start it? Could have drove it out on its own power

Had a buddy that had an old International Scout back in the Marine Corps, Guess now it was not that old then, As it was early 70s Scout in the Mid 1980s, would be a classic now though!

Reminds me of the movie commando when he drove his truck down the hill with no power no power steering or brakes .

Just curious. I understand the liability reason for putting your own people in the recovered vehicles. Does your insurance company require any specific qualifications other than being one of your employees? What is the policy on your own damage? Around here, unless it is an obvious total and the recovery is more a "clean up the mess", I've seen large equipment brought in just to make sure there isn't any added scratches. The reason I ask is that you would never see the "coast down the mountain" around here. Even in some tight areas, as soon as it can be put onto a conventional setup, it is.

If I was the owner of that International I would have been the one staring it back if I had someone else driving it and hid in the bushes like she did I would have flipped the fuck out I understand you're trying to do your job and everything but sometimes people got to ride in their own vehicles

Somebody should tell Lizzy to move the seat it can always be put back but it better for her to sit more comfortable and safer

Ah I’ve got a question? The scouts starter is not working? Right? Then can’t you just coast or tow it & pop the clutch to start it & drive it out?

Lizzy, this is BY FAR your work to date. I have been in that seat when I was 12, but I was in single axle grain without power searing or power brake. You should be proud of that trip, and grateful for an experience that you will have the honor to be the last to experience it. -Tips my hat to the Lady-

Why not try and get a starter?? It's an old vehicle but not that old. And why didn't the fella have his camp broke down and ready to go? Or he could have just camped and had a starter brought the next day..

Wonder why they didn’t jump jump the scout off. If it had a manual transmission like I assumed it did. But then again the longer they pulled it the more money they made

As an owner of a 77 scout II for over 20 years now... I can tell you that Scout didn't "break down". It was just resting.. They will go ANYWHERE forever.. But the second you treat them like a 79 ford beater... They just quit .. to teach you a lesson. I'm pretty sure they learned it from VW's..

I’m a little late to the show, but if the battery has any juice, you can sometimes bang on the starter while someone is inside trying to crank it.

Rules for flat towing in Nevada? Guess same as anywhere- tow vehicle must be running, the dead vehicle must be behind tow vehicle & don't run over the rope... Think that about covers it?

My first car in 1991 was a 1980 scout II. It weighs a freaking ton. it will pull a house but it will also use a full tank of gas going a very short distance. I had the 345 in it. Loved that truck. Cannot imagine counting on a 35 year old scout in the desert now though. Put a LS in that dang thing.

My dad had an International Scout (maybe a Scout II) back in the 1970s. IIRC, it was his first automobile with two wheels too many (he also had a few motorcycles [one at a time]). After that, he had a FoMoCo car and a couple of Chrysler cars. Me, I'm into foreign imports, especially small to midsized Japanese and German automobiles. Although I prefer to own imports, I'll drive anything with wheels on it (and I've driven a few vehicles most people reading this have never ever touched with their own hands). I'll fix 'em too, regardless of where they originated.

Flat towing? It's Nevada. Do whatever you want. I live in Reno and that's what I do... whatever I want. California is slowly taking over though and unfortunately, things are changing.

My dad bought a Scout 80 in like 77’ I was four. That POS left us stranded at least three times. Finally in 1980 he found an early Bronco he could afford. Never left us stranded, and I still have it.
