    Default M 8 Greyhound in surplus yard

    The sad fate of some WW2 Veterans , in a Military Surplus Yard :
    Here are several photos of these M 8’s , which after many years of service in war and peace and a lot of time resting unprotected in Army depot fields, were finally sold as “scrap” metal to military surplus yards in Greece. This is such a waste of these historical fighting vehicles !

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
