So did you ask to test drive one of them?

They have over 40 Ts but only half are on public display. There's a number of Model As too plus a Model N. Don't know how many Jay Leno has but it must be one of the largest collections of Ts.

Dave, Does that mean you have to 'kranken' it to start it????
Let's see; krankenhaus means hospital so that T is a sort of ambulance- right?

"Krank" essentially translates as "sick", or simply "not well". I remember that from when I took German in high school.
"Wagen" (with the "W" enunciated as we do a "V") is of course "wagon" or more aptly "car" as in Volkswagen which literally translated means "people's car" (with the "V" enunciated as we do an "F").
Ain't linguistics fun!?

The only thing German (apart from some of the vehicles in the photos) is the 140 proof schnapps you guys enjoy while reading the forum :-) ; museum is not in Germany or Austria. It's in Chernogolovka near Moscow. See:

They bought this collection from Germany, as I know, few years ago.

A lot special vehicles at this museum. For me probably the most interesting was a Canadian Ford F60 WW2 Military 4x4 truck with an amazing history. From what I understood the vehicle was captured by Axis forces at Tobruk during the North African campaign from the British (or maybe Aussies?). On Axis withdraw from North Africa they took the truck with them adding Wehrmacht markings but leaving the "Ford Canada" badges intact! Truck ended up fighting the Soviets on the Eastern front where it was captured again. If I understood correctly, the truck still retains original paint and Wehrmacht markings! There's a couple a decent photos of it in the second link above.

I wish that I liked Russia. There is beautiful architecture, fascinating history - among other things, it was Russia more then us that won WW2 in Europe (that ought to set off a few of you - and I will defend my position vigorously - I'm not anti-American, I'm just very pro-fact). Unfortunately it has a horrible government, and most of the older people (those over 35) have a stock answer - no; Apparently it is felt by these folks that you can't get into too much trouble if you just say no. As of about six years ago, the younger people were OK.

John, how can you say that when without Lend Lease the Russian army probably would have starved and run out of armament as well? I confess to being largely ignorant on the subject so educate me.

WHAT!!!! ????

The Russians hacked a museum with Model Ts in it!
Horrible!


I wonder how they stop the Ts from leaking all over the vehicles under them!

They don't put oil in them, that could be the only answer.
