    I'm fairly certain that that bottom color picture is a model!
    Thanks for posting the pictures. Not quite a match for my road wheel.

    Great item and story, I will be in Bastogne at Christmas time

    I would imagine that there were numerous Panzer's disabled with wheel or track shots......
