After 15 years living 10 km from a tank museum i finally got round to visiting..so i saw lots of tanks including the only working king tiger... some had holes in them which made me feel sorry for poor bugger trapped inside.. there is also a section of the berlin wall and a trabant military vehicle... worth a visit if you're in the area..

Bovingdon? Last visited there about 15 years ago .. those old German tanks do belch out the exhaust smoke!

Somebody that I know is a professional classic car restorer. He has a new project, it's called a Chevrolet Fleetline, unusual in that it's right hand drive. Not, as you might expect, for the Australian market, but South Africa. The art deco shape and two tone colour show just how much 'soul' is missing in modern cars.
