    Oil problem => invade an oil rich country that has a poor military
    road problem => in belgium we have a solution, it's called a "wegenvignet" (= road permission). Everybody buys one (60€) and the money is used to repair the road. But since the dutch opose, it's abandoned.
    cop problem => turn the turret backwards, shoot the police car.

    I just got some info about that auction (it was held this morning). Prices varied a lot, you could get a Charioteer with less than 10000 € while winning bid of one of the StuG's was 185000 € :eek:

    It doesn't make sense. Those StuG was just a pile of armour plates. And that's worth more then a tank that needs less repairs.
    Auctions, such a strange world

    Market value - StuGs are famous, but who has ever heard of the Charioteer? (outside of nerds like us :wink: )

    Good point.

    But then again, repairing it would take even more money, you can't expect to make a profit of it.

    if you can afford a tank you might be able to afford a lawyer like johnny Cochran
