This TARC2 has now be re-sprayed Red, which is a shame, as there are not many left in Nato Green now - if any?

Nice picture Andrew and unusual to see a "greenie". Its a pity about the respray though, restoration is about presenting it as it was in service, and if it served in West Germany, then green it should be.

Thanks John, who knows another might turn up that has not yet been seen, these things do happen. Pity Walter doesn't take his team up to Llandudno this weekend.
All the best, Andrew

Oh well Andrew never mind its probably too far for him! Age you know! lol! Me, another tractor rally, far slower and less thirsty than a Tac 2!

I have a Range Rover, so have an idea of consumption, and it can sometimes hurt. Pity you can't get to the Anglesey Rally on the 16-17 May, Walter.

Andrew, on the 77 strike we used 2 Tac 2s in South Yorks. As you can imagine, being only 4 BA wearers to cover the county the machines got hammered. Best mpg was 8 to 12! I was tempted to take one on for restoration but the horror of paying the fuel puts me off. And like Walter, I am getting on...

Added by John Stott on 02 May 2009.
I'd take one on, if only for shows the ouch factor would not have been too bad, I wish I'd known the old Caernarfon machine had been for sale I would have gone for that, sadly I'm skint again now, 4.0L Discovery you see.
All the best, Andrew.

Added by Walter Davis on 02 May 2009.
Yes or go onto the Anglesey Vintage Society web site.

I drove this TACR 2 in Wildenwrath. I am about to have my red TACR 2 sprayed green. I have a TACR 1 that I have sprayed green.
