On one of those occasion when researching one thing and ending up somewhere totally different I ran a site yesterday that sells tanks.. If you have $199,000 just sitting around, you too can own a vintage 1943 M5 Stuart light tank. It is small enough to fit in your garage and light enough that it should not crack your slab. I actually think I would buy one of these if I had the money. You can get them street legal and how cool would it be to pull up at work in a tank?
Especially when applying !Vulture6Participant
I have a friend who works at the Virginia Museum of Military Vehicle (http://vmmv.org/) and they have quite a collection. He's frequently off to the far corners of the world to buy at T-34 or some other iron beast.PhidippidesKeymaster
I think I heard of a farmer who bought a tank once to serve as a tractor.WallyParticipant
Especially when applying !
Hell yes! Or better when I turned in my retirement papers... they'd have then understood. 😮
Where can you find this one ?
If I could see the bumper number I could guess better. As it is, I will guess Bastogne because of the snow and the French language signs in the background.Update, it is this one: B-6 from the 41st Tank Battalion, 11th Armored Division at the Ardennes Memorial in Bastogne. I was right the first time. ;D
Too strong ! 😉
More like a lucky guess that quick research showed to be correct. There are several dozen if not 100+ Shermans sitting around in France and Belgium as part of memorials.
Another helpful clue : “Created by Colonel Guy de la Vasselais, the “Freedom road” retraces the route taken by General Patton?s 3rd Army from the Sainte-M?re-Eglise to Bastogne. All along this way are kilometer markers.”
Yeah, I noticed the marker and knew what it was, it narrowed it down to France or Belgium but there are several hundred of these markers and your picture was not clear enough for me to read it. 🙁
