Default Heck with Boats, My neighbor restores tanks.

Drove by a neighbors house this morning and this was parked in front of house. I knew he restored old military jeeps, but he seems to stepped up game a couple of notches. Realize it is not a "tank" but have been told it is an armoured scout vehicle. Pretty bad ass four wheeler if you ask me. Wonder what it tows.

By the way it had a license plate on the back...

Houses, small naval vessels, groceries for a division out on maneuvers for a month.

Cool. My brother is in a military vehicle club. Not sure if they have one of those but they do have a duck, a kubelwagon and a 1941 BMW motorcycle with a sidecar and MG42 mounted on it.

Roar past those bicycle guys in spandex pants who are blocking the traffic lane. That should get them off the road and onto the shoulder.
