    Here is a pic of Saddams cars that were seized in IRAQ. I was surprised to see a TR in the pic.

    I wonder what they will do with it besides giving it a good wash?

    Wishful thinking, at best......I'll wager the TR will 'accidently' get crushed by an errant tank driver who's mulling over his $18K/year salary in the 'Army of One'.

    When I last was involved in this area of reasearch, in 1999, military pay was 14 percent lower than civilian pay, retirement benefits had been reduced, and there were at least 25,000 military families on food stamps.

    That's a Weapon of Mass Driving!

    I think that GWB should give the $ for it to an Iraqi school, and then burn donuts in it while flipping Saddam off and generally kick the crap out of it.

    Or, just tell the servicemen to have at them!

    if i were those soldiers i'd be looking for the keys. a few laps around the palace in a car you could care less about seems like a pretty good idea.

    Yes it is true, apparently he wanted the car but did not want to pay for it , when his cousin refused he shot him and took the car.

    Uday had a big collection, but when he shot his mistress, Saddam got mad. Saddam liked her, and because Uday had killed him, Saddam burned Uday's 20 car garage down to the ground. WIT DE CARS IN IT

    Ok, the jerk had some nice cars but don't count on them ever being maintained correctly or running at all. I'm sure there were plenty of "turnover of mechanics" for the so called royal family.

    I think they should have a raffle & raffle the cars off to US servicemen who put their lives at risk. Probably not PC but I hate PC anyways
