Restoring the M22 Locust

While Civil War re-enactors seem to get all of the attention, there are a number of people around the country who are into the higher-priced world of World War II re-enactment. Here we have the restoration of an M22 Locust, a light tank developed by the US, but primarily used by British forces (due to their easy deployability via the Hamilcar glider). Found in a Midwestern field, the tank's repurposed Lycoming aero engine was yanked in favor of a cheaper Cadillac 346-inch flathead, and the turret had to be built from scratch. Just the thing to tool around in during a weekend jaunt through the Ardennes.
