Hey all,

this October my girlfriend and I visited the (amazing) collection of Mr. Littlefield in Portola Valley, CA. Chris Hughes was so kind and guided us through the whole collection. I was amazed by the size and atmosphere in those halls. If you ever happen to be in that area, stop by and take the chance to see unique and well restored military vehicles, guns, ammo etc. Thanks again from Austria, I will never forget those hours!

Here a selection of the pictures I took, I have a lot more, but this will give you an overview about the quality of the collection. Hey Chris, you still have the video with me rotating the ZSU AA gun?? :-D

Have fun with the pics guys, here we go:

Hi
Firstly, thanks for posting the great pics !
2nd, it shows what can be done with a collection - using natural light, really ggo details can be seen - unlike various dingey collections in the UK !

BTW, the Wheatcroft collection is partially opened in the Donington car collection in Leicestershire.

Cheers
Andrew

Andreas,
It was good to meet another ML user. Nice pics! Did you receive the video?

Again, to all ML users, the MVTF (www.mvtf.org) is open for tours. Visit the website to schedule one or contact me directly and I'll get you set up with one. Just a reminder, we are still not set up for drop-ins. All visits must be scheduled due to the location. Just ask Andreas, Alex van Riezen or others who've been there. I can't always be the tour guide but will see what I can do based on my schedule.
