Now Accepting Donations

If any of you happen to have any spare change lying around, why not send it to me for my latest investment opportunity?

You may recall from my posts in 2008 and 2012 that I'd really like to own a tank. Unfortunately, they're expensive and not easy to come by. But I saw this article on CNN last Friday and saw an opportunity: You Can Now Buy a Real D-Day Tank.

For a mere $440,000, I can buy a World War II era vintage M4 Sherman tank at auction ...

I'd rather have a German Tiger

or King Tiger

or a Russian T-34

but I'll settle for the Sherman. It'll be good enough for parking at the local mall, and stupid drivers probably won't try to cut me off.

E-mail me for details on where to send your donations. I'll give you a ride when I take delivery, and I'll even let you shoot the gun at political campaign signs.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

I am sure that the gass mileage is horrible.
You need to get it refitted, like Gov Arnold Schwarzenegger did to his Humvee, to operate as a hybrid electric. Then it will be a solically responsible, green tank.

I've set up a 'loose change for Bilbo' stand in front of my house. I'll let you know how it's going.

Tom, I guess this means I can't use the depleted uranium rounds either, eh? Bummer.

At least it's not a Prius. Tanks go slow on turnpikes though.

Sounds great; but it can be a bitch to get spare parts.
