JSC's Moon Truck

Not a Mercury or Saturn, but It Goes Way Off Road, NY Times

"It turns on a dime and parallel-parks like a dream. On the downside, its a little pricey (at $2 million or so) and its top speed is a pokey 15 miles an hour. Still, theres a lot to like about the concept car taking shape here at the Johnson Space Center. Did I say car? The new moon buggy conceived by space center engineers is anything but a car or a buggy. Its official name is Chariot, and this, my friends, is a truck. A heavy duty workhorse of a truck."
