Hi all,

Tank Overhaul is a new series on the Military Channel which is premiering on Tuesday at 8 p.m. CST.

Looks like they take tanks that have been left on target ranges, etc., and restore them to fully operational condition.

Dan :cheers:

Amos,

You have missed it but Im sure it will be repeated soon. The episode on the Panther was good though it concentrated on the American owners restoration when the Brit collector already had his up and running. These guys are seriously wealthy. :beer:

Seen that. I think it will be a spin off of a couple of shows I saw on either that channel or one of the discovery channels about guys - seemed like all filthy rich ones - who rebuild tanks, some of those guys had more armour in their yard than some nations, up to and including a Scud launcher

Gutted I've missed the programmes, especially one with a Panther. I saw the programme on Discovery where they restored a Centurian ARV, but this sounds much more like the real deal.

I was looking at T62's for sale on the internet, you can pick them up now for about ?35K. Might need a bigger garage though.......

Amos.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
