This morning in Mauldin at Halls Barber shop. He wasn’t in shop as it was still there when I left, unless it was driven by one of the barbers but they normally park out back. Forgot to leave a card, d’oh!!

A few more: I did spot one LC police vehicle in Jerusalem (couldn't get a pic from the bus in time) but mostly these Mitsubishi's....wondering if they kept and converted a captured terrorists LC....
This first pic of the Montero was a improptu checkpoint that sprung up to head off potential rioting that was expected later that evening. I did ask permission to take the pic and one nodded.

Anyone able to identify these vehicles from the 1967 6 day war? Taken overlooking the valley of tears on the Golan Heights, crappy day so couldn't see into Syria as hoped.

I don't think those tanks are from that time period. You are standing on what looks like a Merkava (Israeli), and behind you is a Soviet T-72. I need to look closer at some comparisons, because both would be later.

Edit: You are standing on a Centurian. The side port is recognizable.

Maybe a T62 for the other based on the gun (bigger than a T55, but too early and rich for a T72). I can't make out the other features that could help differentiate it and I am as rusty at AFVID as a pile of spent 7.62 cases in an Afghan stream bed.

Winner Winner, chicken dinner! Israeli Centurion (bought from UK) and Syrian T-62. You are such a good Google-er! The Syrian T-62 had a few holes in it....apparently the Syrian tanks outnumbered the Israeli armor 10:1 but the kill ratio was 17:1 for Israel but they did lose quite a few crews. I know there is a documentary on it I need to find and rewatch.

I used to have to do these fun things. Mute it so you don't have to hear the speak and spell narrator. Tank Crew Gunnery Skills Testing - AFVID - ppt video online download

Useless trivia, a MultiPurpose AntiTank round from an Abrams will penetrate the heaviest frontal armor of a T62. The book says it won't, but it is quicker to try if that is what is loaded and then load Sabot for a followup shot. Immediate secondary detonations confirm that no followup is required.

I think he works at either Lowe’s, Arizona Steakhouse, or Crackerbarrel on Grandview. It’s in the Lowe’s parking lot behind Crackerbarrel all day every day. I’ve left a club card and contact info, but no response.
