We were talkin about Hitler's car last year on the vintage forum, when Canadian museum threatened to put it up for auction to raise funds.

Apparently it had fuel tank of more than 100 gallons, solid tires and armored plating, tipping the scales somewhere around 8 - 10,000 lbs.

Its got an interesting history too..... was recovered in the Balkans after it was driven out of Berlin by nazis fleeing the Russians. Then American GI's painted it military green and used it as dailly driven motorpool vehicle.

Then it found its way to Arizona, was auctioned for somewhere around 1/4 million dolllars in the '70s and donated to the Canadian War Museum where it now rests.
