    So nice that you can acquire and restore these vehicles. I am sure it will look nice.

    I love these and yet I've never actually seen one......

    They are so typical of the Battle of the Bulge - and I do have a copy of Hitler's Crawlin' Coffin.......

    You not seen one at Beltring, Martin?
    Certainly been one or two present on years I think we've both been there. Big old site, though. One of the few places you could lose an HST.
    Splendid things at full chat.

    Couple of snaps from 2009:
    Allis M4. Similar to what Halftrackman is looking at:

    Hope you're gonna honour us with some restoration pictures when you get cracking, Halftrackman!

    Sigh ! Nope :( - must just be one of those (many) things I've missed. I'll have to make a special effort this year.....

    Yes indeed, do please keep us updated, halftrackman. That's a terrific restoration to be involved with.
