With all the gasoline price talk lately...

...I wondered why the junk email from Vickie's Secret was offering a "Free Tank".

It took me a second to realize that they meant "-top", not "-of gas".

(I guess in more normal economic times, I would have thought "Cool! I'll take an M3 Stuart and drive it to work!")

Maybe you need an MST3k type tank Top.

There's a doc in Foat Wuth who owns a Ferret and drives it around when the weather isn't too damned hot. He's probably cutting back these days as it only gets around 10MPG.

He says it's as close to a real Rolls-Royce as he's going to get. I think he said he paid about 8k for it, running and in good shape. Always gets a lot of attention when he drives it. Must have to do with the armament.

What, a Lee? I might've guessed a more antique model, like a MK V but I see they're extremely scarce.

Damn me for an import driver if you must, but I want a Pz IIIJ (Special).

Actually, I've always wanted one of these:

Not being the greedy sort, and earning enough to support me and mine in the shabby middle-class manner to which we're accustomed, I've never lusted after great riches. BUT, I dearly hope that anyone who is loaded enough to defecate ducats would have the sense to own, drive, and shoot a M3tank. Otherwise, what's the point?
