seen a few over the years in varying states of operation, there's the K700 with V8 and the K701 with V12 in it.......seems to be all noise rather than actual raw power, plus they run them on those old cross-ply tyres with rigid sidewalls and no grip in them if compared to the radials we have at home

I have never really thought about bringing something back, but for starters I would look in Ukraine first....easier to get to regarding visas (excluding the current troubles), closer to home/less miles to shift, exporting stuff out of Russ. I hear is difficult.

What you notice here is that they don't have the same idea of second-hand market as we do, the old stuff gets parked up and cannibalised to the bare bones rather than chop it for a new this nature i would be surprised to find one they would part with for small money

Tudor hasn't been out for a while now, but Rachel his wife was there recently I believe.
He's some amazing tales and it must be a truly remarkable place to spend time in.
If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!
