Man parked Sherman tank in fancy neighborhood

After everything that he has done for his country, the combat veteran is facing the worst kind of homefront warfare – nastygrams from a homeowners association. He came ashore at Normady and fought across Europe, helping defeat Nazi Germany, just to get this kind of treatment in his retirement.

Houston attorney Tony Buzbee bought this beautifully restored, fully functional M4 Sherman tank overseas last year. (Such a museum piece costs $600,000 in case you’re in the market.) Now it is parked on the street infront of his expensive house in the ritzy River Oaks neighborhood. This tank landed at Normady. It freed Paris and finally went all the way to Berlin. A lot of history comes with this tank.

According to Buzbees words: „It took a year to get here, but now it is on River Oaks Boulevard.“

“It’s great for America,” agrees one of his neighbors, Ken Douglas.

But the River Oaks Property Owners association does not seem to think so. They sent Buzbee a letter in which says that the tank interferes traffic, is a safety issue, and the neighbors are concerned about it.
