Anyone want to "Time Share" a tank with me ???
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

My next dumb question - can that be real Blazer ERA? In private hands??? It is an explosive after all right?

I would think they're mockups, but that's not what the description says...

Neil,
Well, it does, really. You can assume that they are inert.

"has been upgraded with the reactive armor boxes that you see around the turret. There are no real guns or armament of any kind on this vehicle."

I actually know the guy that owns this - and I believe, the guy he got it from as well. And yep, its the real deal - sans live weaponry and reactive armor.

Best wishes,
David Doyle

Truck transportation although possible would be near prohibitivly expensive.

Due to individual State Highway movement restrictions / requirements, transportation costs are going to be VERY HIGH.

Of course the closer to East Texas, the better. Lets see Arkansas or Louisiana are close...... Wink

Let's see, I have put the pro's and contra's against each other:

pro: you will have an nice piece of hardware

contra: buy-ing an tank, in the US, through E-bay, that still has life weaponry and is packed with explosive's
And then shipped it to the port of Rotterdam and have it transported to my home

I think it will be cheaper just to burn the $300.000
Save's me money from shipping and the big fine from US and Dutch custom's

From the US custom's for illegal exporting weapons and from Dutch custom's for illegal importing weapons

Also the tank will end up at the scrap yard...... Neutral

It is difficult to make an decision, however I think I have to turn down you're offer for funding Mr. Green

Michel

Would "1982" actually be the rebuild date?

Mark, I'm pretty sure that's her original build date. USMC got their last M60A1's around that time. Her SN would be in the 10,000 series. There are a few at Chiraco Summit California that fall in that category. I guess I could call the number and find out if he's willing to divulge the serial number to know for sure.

Then again, when I hit the Powerball tonight I'll just check it out in person when she's delivered Smile Laughing Smile Laughing
