In August of 1987, the Small Island Migratory Bird Research Station received its new rapid response vehicles, a Gavril D10 and an Ibishu Pigeon. When the station's two attendants saw the vehicles, reportedly they said "I call the Gavril!" simultaneously.
Nearly 33 years later, with funding having been slashed several times, the station is forced to keep its aging vehicles running. A few years back, they did receive a one-time grant, but it was used to convert the facilities to solar power. The station has new attendants, but still only two, and like their predecessors they fight over who has to drive the Pigeon.
The vehicles still do their jobs admirably, with few modifications save for GPS navigators for both, long-range antennas and a bug shield for the D10, and custom-made stabilizers for the Pigeon (due to an incident in 1994). The D10 has lost a few amenities, including its hubcaps, rear wheel cover, and air conditioning. The Pigeon had no amenities to begin with (it arrived with broken air conditioning), though the left door latch is broken and one of the stabilizers has come loose. Both have surprisingly robust engines, with the Pigeon's 600cc 3-cylinder having even survived a dunk in the Pacific (an April Fools' Day prank gone wrong). Neither are likely to be replaced any time soon, though both employees have been trying recently to get their supervisor back in Belasco to spring for a used Roamer.
Here's the old trucks—identical 1973 D15s with camper shells—in 1987, having just been shipped back to the mainland to be scrapped. Both only lasted 6 years on the island before being replaced. The attendants complained about the unreliable engines and lack of four-wheel-drive, which was what led to the decision to purchase a brand-new Charro. Unfortunately, the considerably more expensive vehicle left practically none of the budget left, so the best second vehicle they could afford was a Pigeon with a fuel-injected engine.
That moment when you think *F*CK*
