Predator teams up with Datron World Communication’s team G.I. Jane

Last week Predator partner with Datron World Communication’s to support the Senior Experience Program at California State University – San Marcos.

The Senior Experience Program matches teams of students with projects submitted by local businesses and organizations. Students gain by working as consultants on rigorous, real-world projects that require teamwork and application of classroom knowledge. Businesses gain by receiving concentrated attention from bright, energetic teams that provide a fresh, independent look at their projects. Each student team works under the supervision of a faculty member.

Team G.I. Jane, 5 female accounting majors with no tactical , off road, and/or military experience , was giving a project to research, examine and recommend the best vehicle for Datron’s needs. They quickly went from ZERO experience in the off road world to being Subject Matter Experts in Vehicle platforms and capabilities in 6 months! Heidi from Team G.I. Jane and Roger Gillespie From Datron made a site visit to Predator. They came with the knowledge that the H1 was the best vehicle platform to move forward with to match their mission requirements. When Heidi ask if we would support Team G.I Jane, we knew we had to help take their final project to the next level.

HUMVEE! Start your Engines! Humvee C-Series Kit Car

AM General Storms back into the Market with the HUMVEE C-Series Kit Car.

AM General blows the dust off and is jumping back into the civilian market with the HUMVEE C- Series Kit Car. This turn of events will allow customers to build a street legal HUMVEE!  The Kits comes with a rolling chassis (probably the 2006 Alpha), and the only thing you need to get the wheels rolling is a engine and transmission etc (on your own). This allows AM General to get around the EPA emissions standards and U.S. Government safety regulations that played a huge role in shutting down the HUMMER H1 productions several years ago.

All reports about the C- Series Kits state that it will come pretty basic.  Even though they are marketing the HUMVEE  on the civilian side, it will lack some of the creature comforts that Hummer H1 owners are used too. We have received  mixed reports but it looks like it will be downgraded interior trim. Lacking power doors and locks, door-mounted mirrors, hard doors, and even glossy paint.  C-Series will have a 4 seat configuration, soft top and soft doors.  Keep in mind , it’s a HUMVEE not the HUMMER.

We are super excited about the C-Series, this is right up our alley! Big plans are on the table for custom Predator packages.  With the C-series being so basic, it leaves TONS  of room for our Research and Development department to dive in and create some smoking custom work. With that type of freedom, every HUMVEE C- Series Kit Car leaving Predator will be unique.
