Texas neighborhood tense over World War II tank parked outside multimillion-dollar home

A history buff in Tx shelled out some $600, 000 pertaining to a  fully functional World War II tank — but now that it’s parked outside his  multimillion-dollar home, it’s ruffling down in his neighborhood.

Attorney Tony Buzbee of River Oaks said this individual bought the tank overseas a year ago.

“ Took a year to get here, great it’ s on River Oak trees Boulevard, ” Buzbee told KHOU Houston‏ . “ This particular tank got at Normandy. It liberated Paris, france, and ultimately went all the way in order to Berlin. There’ s a lot of background here. ”

However , the homeowners organization sent him a letter stating the tank “ impedes traffic” and causes a “ safety issue” and “ serious concerns intended for neighbors, ” according to the report.

“ It’ s not violating any ordinance, but for some people much more the homeowners association uncomfortable, ” Buzbee said.

He added that he could move the tank to their ranch in east Texas eventually.

“ The problem is there is no action they can get, ” Buzbee told KHOU. “ They can ticket it or they could try to tow it, but the truth is unless of course I decide to move it, it’ s not going anywhere. ”
