I have been watching. The last one did not sell that well, so I hear that the army are going to throw in a few grenades to make the deal better. Sorry could not help that.

There is a Land Rover there 6600ks on it, 1989 model.. Current bid $6000 . I was going to say like new but I drive past the army base everyday and those vehicles sit there for months on end with no movement. Imagine whizzing them into combat, how reliable would they be. I know they are regularly serviced but!!! Michael

Military vehicles have a limited expectancy in combat so expecting them to give you 200K is out of question thats why they can site there for ages. Having said that i used to be a driver a 2 Base stores in Morebank back in the 60's. Every now and then all the lower ranks (never an commisioned officer!!!) would go through a whopping shed full of vehicles and take them all for a spin around the block. Not much but it at least gave everything a chance to iron out the wrinkles. I did enjoy taking ten trailers at a time though. Looked excellent on the rough test track. Never quite mastered the reversing though!!!

Even sitting in a shed is worth looking at.
