The Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen Wolf was a version created for the Bundeswehr, Germany’s armed forces, and this beauty has been restomodded to perfection by the folks at Legacy Overland of Greenwich, CT. The vehicle was originally designed to be purely pragmatic with no real comfort built into it, but that’s all changed. While it keeps the same body structure as the G-Wagen, the engine, transmission, and transfer case were all fully rebuilt. It also received Bilstein shocks fitted to the rebuilt suspension. the newly-restored vehicle received a comprehensive frame-off restoration that still managed to look as close to the original vehicle as possible while adding in high-end features like LED headlights, a full two-tone leather-trimmed interior (on the rear jump seats, too), premium sound, a custom air conditioning system, a black mohair soft top, and big Cooper tires. The final touches included a new Boxwood Green paint job, a black bullbar, as well as signal guards, and a bonafide snorkel. It’s the G-Wagen we’d take over any of those G63 AMGs relegated to trolling rich suburbs.

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
