I second that....
A couple of months ago, during a long weekend with my wife in London,
England, we visited the Imperial War Museum. On exibition was a LRDG
Chevrolet as it was salvaged from the Sahara a couple of years ago. Many
items looted since the war but still in a remarkably 'well preserved' state.
Well worth a visit by the way.
