    need a bigger car

    Good evening chaps,, after a excellent trip to the Ciney show I thought I'd better post this one,
    I collected this for a UK buyer who bought it from a mate of mine in Germany, As it was a tad to big to post also it possibly might arouse customs I said yeah I'll collect it, without even seeing it ,
    I only drove there in a little three door fiat punto. it used nearly the whole bloody boot . But glad i did as it as a very nice item.
    sorry bout the Moet chaps but its all I had left in the wine cellar

    Seems to me like a German first world war 25 cm Schwere Wurfmine, if the base is secured to the body by copper shearing pins it is a chemical projectile.

    Nice looker

    That does look like a nice item-what does it weigh and did you have to crane it into the Punto ? How did you manage to get it out ?
