Re: A great museum for Tank buffs here in the US
A private tank collector named Jacques Littlefield amassed a huge collection of tanks and other military vehicles. It is located on a ranch on the peninsula south of San Francisco. He had three large storage buildings and a restoration facility nearby. He passed away last year but I think his collection is still together. It is not open to the public but they have opened it to groups. I went with a history club and was blown away. The collection runs fro WW1 era to the 1970's. He even had a Scud launcher and the half track used in "The Dirty Dozen." 'Myth Buster' filmed one of their episodes there.
Most of the collection is in running condition. They were restoring a German Panther when I was there. It came out of a swamp in Poland I think.
