Seems to be the thing in Oz- Some one has a museum, gts old then sells it all off rather than preserving the collection for posterity.


I was bidding on a DUKW last year under similar circumstances - alas it got to the point where, with shipping back to the UK it was unviable so had to drop out. Think the closing price was around Aus $ 70,000 :(
