Seen at local gas station...

Recommended Posts

something you don't see everyday!! About 3/4 of a mile east of my house, there's this gas station. For the last several years they've been storing all sorts of trailers and oddities, probably for movie "stuff".

 

I've been trying to catch this with the tarp off of it since December. It's your common or garden variety M5 Stuart light tank of WW2 vintage.

What the car is, I still haven't found out. Couldn't see any badges.

 

But, since this is a bit odd to see in (relatively) quite neighborhood, I thought I share with you all!

Enjoy!

Amazing, that is the Italian FIAT 600 Multipla, produced between 1956 and 1967.  Ugly, but somewhat modern for its times, if you consider that certain Le Mans prototype racecars almost use the same principle (the back of the car seems to be front and viceversa).  Proud to be Italian, LOL!

 

Good photos, nice to see that M5 Tank.  I'm wondering if it had been used during WW2, maybe during Operation Husky.  Turns out that after WW2, the Italian Army had been given some Stuart tanks for training.

Nice catch indeed. Thanks for sharing it! (That's one clean tank!)

 

So puts me in the mood for Man in the High Castle (so glad season 3 is in the works! but that's for another thread.)

Me too! I hear it'll be released around December this year.

I haven't seen a 'Union 76" logo since that chain left my area in the early 1980s, or about the same time that Phillips 66 pulled out out of the Northeast.
