6. Shoot, I don't even have a CAR in my garage.

The place is so jam-packed with things that Mrs. Aristus can't bear to get rid of.

Yeah, the German guy with the old World War II Panther tank in his basement is well-known among tank enthusiasts. In a way, we owe him a debt of thanks. So few Panthers (and other models like the Panzer III & IV and the Tiger) survived the war. And the ones that did were used for target practice, or left to rust away in the elements as lawn ornaments. German panzers in running condition are so rare as to be worth their weight in gold.

He kept his Panther in reasonably good condition, in out of the elements. And it probably won't take too much work to get it in full running order. Who knows? Maybe someone will make a film along the lines of "Fury" which starred an authentic Tiger tank, only this time featuring the Panther.
