Norway Collection Purchase (how to explain to the wife)

The sell of the Norway collection took 3 hours. The largest was the Cuthberson at 47500.00 with the Tickford at nearly 40k and the AGTV rolling junk at nearly 30k.

I stopped adding early on at well over 200k.

Anyway as luck worked out the truck that I wanted the buyer dipped on a few minutes after bidding and winning.

Now I have to explain a 101 to the wife before it arrives. The old excuse of "I bought it on Ebay for $25.00 is not going to work I don't think

In all fairnes the wife is OK but she is pusing for a pool and that would have been at least part of the way there.

It was retored a few years back by a 101 club guy. All the medical stuff is in the back (which makes it less useful) but more valuable from what I can tell.

I also purchased a sweet 101 ST troop carrier which is useful. Think I'll keep the troop carrier and sell this one.

The sand tracks are the first think to go. Reduces ground clearance by 8 inches.
