Not Your Usual Auction — Tanks, a Missile Launcher, Armored Personnel Carriers Up for Sale.
It won’t be your usual auction, when the military vehicle collection of the late Jacques Littlefield comes up for auction this summer. Littlefield, who died in 2009 at the age of 59, had an assortment of some 200 wheeled and tracked weapons of war at his ranch in Portola Valley, Calif.
Among the vehicles are a Russian T-72 tank used by the army of Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, a couple of Sherman tanks, and a Scud missile launcher replete with an R-11M ballistic missile for those idle Saturdays when you need to act out your aggression.
The auction is scheduled to take place July 11 at the Military Vehicle Technology Foundation, 499 Old Spanish Trail, Portola Valley, Calif., south of San Francisco. More here at this Autoweek piece.
