Victoria is a big place. Admittedly not as big as WA. There are lots of ex-military stuff about the place rotting in paddocks.
If I had the money and space, I'd be collecting them all. My priorities are to get the space first.
While we're on the subject, do you have an update on the LRPV's and 101's up on the Gibb river road?

I did some 'cost to recover' calculations Mick. Off the scale they went :'(. The remoteness of Mt Barnett is the problem. Can only access Gibb River Road for a few months a year :(. If it rains during these months all hope fades very quickly.

Which reminds me, Scott, we must pay a visit to our mate down the road and take lots of photo's of his treasures.

The ID plates sure look like the real thing as do the remnants of fittings.

Do we know if the wreckers were RAEME refits, or PMC original builds?

I can't remember which they were.  certainly Rover had some photos, but I think it was a RAEME design, but a PMC build.

Not me(unfortunately).The tyranny of distance made it an uneconomical dream.

Hopefully a restorer snapped it up for at least preservation!
