Anyone feeling wealthy?

Recommended Posts

You'll need to be for the estimated prices shown here:

It's the auction site for the Littlefield collection. Rather confusing though as it says there are 108 vehicles for sale - but only 18 are shown - and I think the photo for Lot No. 43 may just be the wrong one!! :wow:

I see the Churchill Toad is in the auction, so may end up back in the UK after being restored here and then sent to the US

Hmmm, the good news is that I've got 25,000,000 Dollars sat in front of me, doing nothing.

 

The bad news is that it's a single Zimbabwe banknote (and it has an expiry date that is long since gone).

 

Anyway, I can't drive.:embarrassed:

$200k for a Conqueror? Someone better tell the IWM!

just noticed the prices are in $s....

that makes it all pretty reasonable doesn't it ???

yeah I know a stack of money still but ..... I'd have thought about £100,000 ish for a running and complete relatively rare tank such as a Conqueror was reasonable ??? isn't it ?

well it is in my book... if a Jeep can apparently occasionally fetch £20,000?... I'd willingly give 5 times that to own a real living breathing Conqueror anyways :)

The thing is a Conqueror weighs 65 tons and does 9 gallons to the mile...... That does lower it's desirability to many!

A scrapyard in Norfolk cut up a Conqueror up about five years ago and when the gas axe cut through the barrell it cut through a drill round stuck in there, that caused a lot of confusion for a while and the Police and Bomb Squad were called!

Thats odd , I did not see any drill rounds or the bomb squad ! I was there dealing with it for the police . No confusion.... Tell your own stories Steve ... Not half of other peoples .
