Acting panzer!

I was riding the motorcycle to Frye's Electronics when I passed the Alpharetta VFW Post. Now, I've been past there a hundred times but this time I looked more closely and then I rode over for a closer look at this:

That's an M60, almost as old as I am. Darn it, I could have brought the kids here when they were little.

While there's no climbing allowed on the tank, you're welcome to sit in the 40mm AA and scan the southern sky for sneak attacks from neighboring Roswell.

It's an unlikely event as Alpharetta has established air superiority with its Shooting Star, one that dates from just 3 years after the end of World War II.

It's odd how you can miss something interesting so many times. I'm glad I stopped missing it.

UPDATE 7 September 2015 11:48: The post title was supposed to be "Achtung Panzer" but the iPhone autocorrect changed it in a way that kind of kicked over my giggle box.

Hi my name is Sam and I think you have a really cool site. I run The Last Tradition blog
and I was wondering if you’d be interested in a blog roll exchange? Check me out and if you like what you see I hope you add me to your blog roll. I’ll gladly do likewise.

Tanks for the post! Nice pics of some classics.

Very cool!

I guess that's all after my time or else I, too, rode past it dozens of times without noticing.

'Course, I probably wouldn't even recognize Alpharetta anymore.


If I ever get back to Georgia, I'm gonna nail my feet to the ground.

Good ones, and glad to see the airplane actually looks pretty good!
