That's quite a collection of Electras mortarman...like the jeep too. Always fascinated by WWII stuff. Working on posting direct pics to the subject, but till then here's a link to just a couple-o-pics of things that interest me besides guitars. Hope you enjoy. http://s1147.photobucket.com/albums/o55 ... k/Hobbies/

:rofl: :rofl: I have always told my wife and kids I would have a tank in the driveway one day so when I came home with the Jeep they said it was all me and asked why I did not have a tank. Answer is a tank of any sort in good condition is far to expensive and one is pieces is far to expensive so don't have to worry about the tank aquisition syndrome. :rofl: :rofl:

Friend of mine in NZ has an M4 Sherman, 2 Universal Carriers, various American trucks, a Jeep and a fully operational 40mm Bofors on a transport mount for towing behind a limber.

He bought them as basket cases and restored them; great fun to play with!!

BLAST IT!.... Now you guys got me doin it! So I get home from work and the thought creeps into the noggin "Pssst...Hey Mark, hop on the bike and go to the local pawn/guitar shop and see if there are any Electras there". It was cold, very cloudy, the threat of rain in the air, and I'll be darned if I didn't get suited up, warm the bike up and go look! I didn't find any "E" guitars, but I did find a "E" bass that was a McCartney/Hofner copy for $319.00. But I didn't buy it cause I don"t play bass. See what an influence you guys are!

Those are fairly rare. I've only seen a few. Took me a while to sell the one i had. It went to eastern Europe .
