I may be up for a drive.. humm ...no Pan-Tiger though ???

As well the Foundation had done Jacques wrong buy selling the collection, that is not what Jacques wanted but greed wins again, also some of the items will be sold to a big time Russian collector as well .

It's odd that a private collection sells to a Museum, when they don't the money to put up buildings to house the largest tank collection in the U.S. They are all sitting outside rusting in Virginia after being moved from Maryland. You think they could have gotten some of those tanks.

"As of July 2013 most of the outdoor exhibit (+90%) have been moved to Fort Lee Virginia and the museum is closed. Items in Fort Lee are stored and not open to the public."

A real shame...

Good luck organizing a trip to MA. or VA.

Danville: I'm in, if timing is right next year. thumbs up 

Massachusetts:  Let's see where they are in 2 years, but love to.

Oshawa:  Been there! Very Happy   Be a great opportunity for the club to put on a display during one of their Tank Days.  

And another great place to go, is the War Museum in Ottawa, especially with the 100 Anniversary of WWI coming up.  Been there too!! Cool

Trips for me suck because of my perma-nightshift schedule with little or no room for time off... oh the joys of youth Wink

The Ram at Borden was awesome up close, what a sexy tank! This collection looks awesome. One day I'll come along on a trip... the Ottawa museum I've never been too!

Do the war museum dance.

I have wanted to go ( for years), plus take my time not rush.
But it is tough to make something like that happen.

It's really not that tough.  Set a date, get the time off work, set up accommodations, go.  Done.  

I've done these type of trips dozens of times.  

The biggest challenge is making the commitment.  Once that's done, you're on your way.  

So, pick a date and go...simple.

Museum in Ottawa is a must, been once and spent 6 hours in the tank section alone, is a must see. Would go again and might actually know a few things about tanks this time.  Also they have the Diefenbaker bunker just outside Ottawa, really cool cold war setup.
