    You have an extra 600K laying around, are you really worried about maintenance?

    Parked out front? Maybe not. Might want to check the garage, though.

    It's not San Diego, I doubt there are many over 250K, but then I wouldn't know. I have seen many nice cars in Texas, but not nearly as many as southern California and very rarely near 600K.

    Over $600k cars are rare in general

    But I see a lot of $200k cars

    You’re not looking in the right places, lol

    My parents neighbor had 2 lambo’s and an Alpina Z8 flooded out recently, that’s at the house. His warehouse had several more exotics flooded. And that’s not in R-O

    Somebody elsewhere did some research on this Houston tank and posted this:
    (Don't flame me, I just copied & pasted it here - but deleted a couple of irrelevant smack talk statements from the writer)

    What a dick......

    "Also, the tank is a composite restoration, not an intact tank from WWII, so saying "it" was at Normandy, Paris and Berlin is non-sensical."

    That's like saying my 4-Runner wasn't on the beach at Port A, because I had my clutch redone, and had different tires then.

    Saw a $2 million Porsche 918 Spyder parked on the top floor of the Sugar Land town center garage to escape the flooding during harvey.

    Public garage, free parking lol.

    From what that researcher indicated, Buzbee really embellished the battle history of that tank because there was no documentation of such that came with the purchase. It apparently wasn't even close to Paris.
    If the owner is going to make claims about its history, he should have documentation from the DoD or the British Army to back it up.

    Otherwise, it is a badass WWII artifact that would be cool to own.

    I agree that the owner should be called out for embellishment. But the guy acts like it was never used in battle, when it appears that clearly it was. My issue is the author of that post discounting the tank's historical significance just because it had some work done.

    Didn't say there isn't any, just rare.
