Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. FWIW, the going rate on these things is closer to a cool $1M, if it runs.

    I knew the guys that owned the tank used in Codetalkers and Flags Of Our Fathers, and that’s what they sold it for, a few years back.

    And yes, it’d be on the “Aesop Wins The Lotto” wishlist too.

  2. Keep the tank. I want the VW. (I still sometimes have dreams with my old ’70 Bug in them.)

    1. One place I worked, someone drove a VW Thing to work every day, panted desert tan, with a swaying palm logo (sans swastika) on the doors. If I recall correctly, he had the kit that mounted the spare on top of the hood.

    2. Nobody ever crushed a car with a VW by driving over it.

      Just saying.

      Bonus: You riding in the TC hatch, with a leather jacket and Iron Cross, baby.
      Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof! That’s my other dog imitation.

  3. Just be very careful where you source your ammunition. A few years back a demo of an M18 tank destroyer at the COSSA range in Oregon went badly sideways when a round loaded with poorly thought out homebrew propellant blew up, killing the two unfortunatess in the turret.
