Bling Ferret now in USA

It’s still alive, so there’s still hope it might get saved.

I suppose a bling auto car sales room (is it really a museum if the "exhibits" are for sale?) in the USA is a logical place for its latest reappearance. Always for sale, but never openly owned, appears to be its perpetual destiny.

As a citizen of the USA, I humbly apologize for that complete lack of taste (and tact) exhibited by my countrymen.

As a feeble defense, I will offer that since our government won't see fit to allow it's citizens to buy it's surplus armor, we who enjoy such things have become a bit of a desperate bunch.

In your defense was it not blinged up  in the UK originally.

With little effort this would be a nice Ferret, it all looks fairly superficial.

The one that brings this back from the brink would be a hero and OK maybe a bit crazy. 

As always it's down to the price.

the "modifications" (sadly) originate in the UK, where this "thing" has been knocking around on the selling circuit for at least a decade. It allegedly has some street cred in terms of bling use by a boxer for personal promo, so to that extent there is an argument that it should be kept in bling as something "different" (and in recognition of its civvi history?)   

actually the fact it is now in the Good ole USA is a great result as you guys are so desperate for armour, and have so much money to throw away, there is a reasonable chance someone will buy and de-bling it back to "original"

Here's hoping

See, now there's an optimistic take on the situation.  Nicely done.
