Great view of the moving massive machine. I hope they have a good hard surface for those tracks, as around here we have to throw some old tires down to move track vehicles on the asphalt or concrete lest they leave a telltale trail behind. I am also glad they are practicing some second amendment rights here, as well! I would put it on a trailer for 4th of July parades!

This machine belongs to what was the Jacques Littlefield collection in CA. When he passed away, it became Military Vehicle Technology Foundation

You may have seen this place before, in a Mythbusters episode (The phonebook test.)

Whenever I see something like this, I try to image a few dozen of them coming across the countryside. It's mind-boggling. What a monster.

I love the idea of a Panther in the garage. Might give the neighborhood hoodlums a moment of pause.

While you guys discuss about a hot matchbox panther in your garage, I prefer the real lady ;)

It was called the MVTF quite a while before Jack passed; but, it wasn't until he passed that the endowment became perpetual. Fortunately his children appreciate his passion for these vehicles and the collection will continue to be available. The collection is open to the public who wish to visit in groups of 20 or so. It is also possible to tag along with another group through prior arrangement. Showing up at the gate and asking to see the collection is not acceptable.

Here is a picture I took when I was there in 2009:

That would be a real one Skip.
