Crashing a M8 Greyhound
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Just for fun.
Some friends of mine are into re-enacting , and they have a M8 Greyhound. Last December they were in the Ardennes and had a little accident with the M8 .
See for pictures here. foto-uploaden.nl/zie/78ykpaq
and foto-uploaden.nl/zie/7ux15ui and foto-uploaden.nl/zie/f9fw3w7 and the last one foto-uploaden.nl/zie/2fwsyn9

Hope this is working


Walter

Links work for me, but they are HUGE (and consequently, resolution suffers).

Walter, as a benefit of registration at C-C, you get a free photo gallery that you access via the "My Account" on menu sidebar at left. You can link photos from that account (after you create your folder) to this website only, or you can use a free hosting service like Photobucket, Flikr, etc. We automatically resize images to 800x600 for our dial-up members and so the text portions don't require a lot of scrolling around to read. You are welcome to link your images here or at one of the other services. If you need any help with this, just ask in the thread and someone will try to assist you.

Interesting photos, I gather the accident was not "staged" in any way, looks like an expensive afternoon outing for someone. Hope the damage was not too extensive.


Edit: Well, you were fixing it just as I posted...very much better, thanks!

I can see them now, thanks. That's pretty sad - I hope it was fixable.
