    WWII German 'Kettenkrad' motorcycle half-track being auctioned

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    I have always wanted one of those. Since I was a kid.
    Got to sit in one at the museum in Newburgh, NY.

    Came thisclose to buying a running American Halftrack about 16 years ago. deal fell through when the seller decided he wanted to remove equipment and not adjust price accordingly. I think it is still rotting in a field.

    Ford put the gas tanks under the seat in their pickups for years. Their ambulances, too.

    36 horsepower out of a 1.5 liter. I love history hahaha! That's a sweet little rig. My god it must have been geared low as hell in the low range/first selection! I absolutely love the utilitarian greatness of classic German engineering. They built some amazing things around that time in history. No frills, nothing cosmetic or otherwise unnecessary, no (god forbid) plastic, just frames, motors, wheels, and bolts holding it all together. A shame they were a bunch of Nazis lol...

    The German soldiers called these things "door knockers" because they were so loud. Everyone knew you were coming...but they would get you there for sure.

    Fuel tanks being out in the open or unprotected isn't that uncommon on military vehicles of the time really. a Russian T-34 had the equivalent of 55 gallon barrels on the sides of it that were fuel tanks
