Well, I might care a little: posted average fuel consumption of the old 404 (the smallest one), 10-14mpg!
Very low-geared and with a really underpowered engine, some of the early Unimogs are closer to a farm tractor than to something really roadworthy. But they're cool anyway.

Those old Unimogs are kinda funny-looking, but not actually ugly.
