You couldnt have said it better - I have watched a M151A1 since the
early 1970's sitting in a yard rotting - the owner will not sell it and
I have only seen it drivrn once in all those years - pasted by it
yesterday and the shrine is still there. Yes we do live in a free
country (thank God) but it is such a shame to see a MUTT that was a
beautiful vehicle rott in the weather.
