Old tanks with new lives

Old tanks

Being a military vehicle enthusiast I am always on the lookout for all things military. Canada’s military used to be much larger, including a large number of tanks. When these were surplused enterprising individuals snapped them up and put them to use. These tanks have been used as mobile spar poles for logging and mobile drills for road construction. The old tanks are far better at cross country work than the modern equipment. This mobile sparpole near Boston Bar is likely based a Canadian M4A2 that served in Korea and till the 60’s in the reserves. This site has some good pictures and story about these tanks.
