Saracen APC

An occasional series of links to do with post-war vehicles - this one is based on the same chassis as the Saladin armoured car - designed in 52 and served til the 90s. I think I like these vehicles as when I was a kid I would get pretty excited when these drove by which was quite common living near to Salisbury Plain. Actually the army did shoot a training film in Frome with the Naish's street area before redevelopment posing as Northern Ireland and local youths were employed to throw rubber bricks. I'd like to see that film if it exists anywhere.
Anyway I would definitely buy one of these if I could afford one if only to piss off all the 4 by 4 drivers and urban land rover drivers. I imagine though it would be a bugger to reverse.
