Daewoo G2X does exist.

I'm in South Korea at the moment. Went to the Gunsan plant and saw 7 G2Xs in the executive parking lot. They are a duplicate of the Sky with exception of badging. 5 were 2.4, and 2 were 2.0 Turbo.
BTW, I'm really impressed with the cleanliness and hospitality of South Korea. Nothing like I expected based on hearsay and the news media. I'm taking a tour to the DMZ this weekend.

When I was in korea it sucked. I was out in the farmland area where they use human poo as fertalizer and the flies were horendous. Almost lost a boot in the mud cause I sank down to a knee, had to drive open hatch in my tank during the dead of night in the middle of winter! Even with all the sniffle gear on I was forming frost on my face. Plus some of the smaller towns have horrible wierd smells that float around.
Civilized areas were nice, the drivers are nuts. Getting in an accident over there is a smoke break to them. No joke. You ether drive like them or you will get no where in a normal vehicle. Even in our tanks they would weave in and out of our convoys. We have had our tanks tailgated and the koreans put up a stink cause their paint peeled from the heat of the turbine exhaust we even had someone rear end a tank.. a couple kids in a little kia or something.
Definately go see the sites, I didn't have much time to do so. Also go see the korean folk village! The dance event is amazing.. plus seeing some guy do tight rope stunts and bouncing his crotch on the rope was kinda wild.

Not the kind of response I was expecting, however as a proud previous military person I can understand. I will say:
"THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO PROTECT THE FREEDOMS WE SOMETIMES TAKE FOR GRANTED".


Thanks for the advise on the Korean folk, I will go.
Seoul is very clean for a big city (traffic still sucks though). I am told there is almost no crime (wish that were the case in my home town). I plan to take in everything I can while here (I can get drunk at home). I will post some pictures when I get home if anyone is interested.

I was stationed in Anjon-ni for two years back in the 70's and yes the locals are something too behold. And yes the traffic on the outback roads was washboard. I remember having to drive a deuce and a half at least 50 MPH to smooth out the bumps going out to the missile sites that I supported...Skip...

The locals were crazy. They would line up outside our gunnery range and protest stupid crap. When I was there on guard duty some guy came by and complained about the noise, that the booms were keeping him awake at night. Ok, that's understandable but nothing we can do about it. He gets an attitude, our korean soldier talks to him and he leaves all mad. Comes back later with his entire family, showing us a 5 month old baby. Apparently he said that us being there was making his child sick.. kid looked perfectly healthy to me and had that "Why you drag me out here?" look on his face. The korean police came by later and escorted them back into town.
I also used to give children our MRE's (Made Ready to Eat meals), the kids out in the country were not as well fed as the city kids. It was against the rules but I rather see it in the hands of hungry children then not when we had food available from the local vendors.

I wish I take a few people not in the military to drive a tank, fun as hell. Specially when you hit a corner hard at 40mph and you start drifting a 67ton beast.

thread hijacked.

I started this thread to discuss the G2X, and my positive experience so far with South Korea. I understand the past and some others experiences. I also appreciate the service that those have given to our great country as I also did. It's not often that we can speak of positive things that happen in the world today. Forgive me for trying to discuss the positive things of today, instead of memories of a negative past.

Edit: Sorry about thread jackin
Otherwise Enjoy the country! Its nice down on the southern tip where all the chairforce are stationed. Be sure to buy some replica jerseys in bulk then sell them $$. Mink Blankets (not real mink) were $30 last time I went which was like last year, over in america they cost somewhere around $80+.

nice to see they are selling them!!

We got to see them at the Mecca tour. Not only on display, but caught one or two on the assembly line.

The HUGE emblem is a turn-off tho.

Awesome videos, but he would have scratched the car in the second one, and that makes me sad.
