Something a bit different
« on: November 24, 2018, 10:41:18 PM »
Hi all.
Last week one of the guys at work was up near Sydney for a charity event, and saw this sitting in the yard at the event.



I believe it is a Saracen 8 man APC but I don't know the story behind why its there, as he didn't ask, just snapped a pic as he thought I might be interested.
It would certainly be a great restoration project. I wonder if you could get it registered to drive on the road? Would sure be fun to reverse park.  ;D

Greg.

Some are/have been registered in VIC. In QLD they have to be registered under the conditional registration scheme.

8 cylinder Rolls Royce petrol I believe.

We had a badly beaten-up one, at 5EME services Unit in the '80's.

Nice garden ornament, although I think my Rover fire engine and GS beat it  :D

Ravin, we had a Sabre Tank on Club registration in the DTHT a few years back, this wouldn't be an issue ;)

I saw one late last year with some young adults poking out of the various hatches on their way to their school formal. The APC looked to be in amazing condition.
