Original 1973 LWB R75/5
Any planned visits to.....
A query: Is there a possibility that some of us attending The 2005 National could visit The Lima Army Tank Plant during the rally?
Indications here on The Forum would lead one to believe that there is a significant group of BMW MOA members who are ex-military and might possibly be interested in visiting the plant in Lima, Ohio where the US ARMY M1A1/M1A2 Abrams Main Battle Tank is built. (Then again, some members of this significant group of MOA members who are ex-military may want nothing whatsover to do with anything that will remind them of their military service - including looking at big tanks when they could be out riding!)
Check out this interesting bit of historical information about the Lima Army Tank Plant and the effect this military contract has had on the folks in Lima over the years.
Any chance of a visit, Madam Sue??
